Situation
Monkredding Losge is situated in a pretty woodland sheltered location about 2 miles to the north east of the Ayrshire town of Kilwinning.

Kilwinning is located on the banks of the River Garnock and is neighboured by the coastal towns of Stevenson, Ardrossan and Saltcoats to the west, and Irvine to the south. In the mid-1960s Kilwinning fell within the area designated as Irvine New Town and expanded rapidly. Within the town there are several primary schools and one major secondary school, Kilwinning Academy. The large North Ayrshire Campus of James Watt College was built in Kilwinning and completed in the summer of 2000. The town centre offers a number of local shops and restaurants with excellent shopping available in Irvine which includes retail parks and a variety of outlet stores and supermarkets.

The Ayrshire coast is famous worldwide for golf with championship courses at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, all of which have hosted the Open Championship. There is excellent sailing on the Firth of Clyde with yachting marinas at Troon and, further up the coast, at Ardrossan, Largs and Inverkip.

The A737 provides good access to the M8 and Glasgow to the north and there is a main line railway station in Kilwinning which provides a fast journey time to Glasgow in the north and Ayr to the south. Locally there are also the international airports of Glasgow (20 miles) and Prestwick (14 miles).

Glasgow (22 miles) is a comfortable daily commute and provides an excellent range of professional services, higher education, cultural and retail facilities.

Travel Directions
From Ayr, travel north along the A78 bypassing Irvine and leave the A78 at the Eglinton Interchange; head for Kilwinning and after a mile, turn right at Bridgend Autoplex onto the B778. Continue along the B778 for 1.5 miles and turn left at white pepper pot gateposts to find Monkredding Lodge.

From Glasgow go to Barrhead and head south along the A736 past Uplawmoor and through Lugton and Burnhouse turning right at Auchentiber onto the B778. The Monkredding gateposts are 2.5 miles on the right.
