Monkton

When you buy a new build in Monkton, international travel is just a walk around the corner. A new home in Monkton is ideal if you're a frequent flyer, or work for one of the many airlines that fly out of Glasgow Prestwick International Airport. Aside from effortless airport trips, the village has a lovely homely feel with a handful of essential shops including a convenience store, post office, cafe and Brewer's Fayre pub, as well as a children's nursery and a primary school. 

To the north, the village opens out onto countryside and forest with easy access to the A77 for trips to Glasgow (about 30 miles). The nearby A78 hugs the Ayrshire coastline taking in seaside towns and pretty harbours including Saltcoats, Ardrossan, Seamill and Largs. To the south, there's Prestwick and its famous golf course, as well as the county town of Ayr with its racecourse, beach, university campus, hospital and all the shops, bars and restaurants you'd expect from a prosperous town.

Travel plans from your new house

Your new home in Monkton is well served by A-roads. The A78 coastal route to Glasgow via Ardrossan, following the Firth of Clyde around the Clyde Muirshiel National Park, and the A77 which is a more determined route, joining the M77 at Kilmarnock and heading into central Glasgow. The A77 continues south to Ayr and then down the coast to Stranraer where you can pick up the ferry to Belfast. The A71 heads inland to Irvine, connecting with the M74. The A79 takes you into Prestwick and Ayr. Your new build in Monkton gives you unprecedented access to Glasgow Prestwick International Airport for flights to several popular European destinations and for a different journey altogether, you can get a ferry across the Clyde from Ardrossan, to the Isle of Arran or Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsula.
