The major towns of Ayr, Kilmarnock, and Largs are also all within 30 minutes by car, but have good transport links if you intend arriving by train – www.scotrail.co.uk – or bus – www.spt.co.uk.
Please note that we are not situated on a public transport route. We would therefore recommend that you have some form of transport with you in order to get the most out of your stay.
First Set of Directions
Take the A 78 from Irvine to Greenock. Stay on the A 78 until you arrive at Sharphill Roundabout – this is well signposted and situated on the new three town by-pass. Turn right (third exit) onto the B 714 to Dalry. Go for another 1/4 mile and then you will see the Brown Tourist Board signs for Lochwood Farm Steading – turn to your right and go for one further mile. We are the THIRD farm on the left handside.
** Please note that there are a great many other road signs to Dalry along the A78 – to avoid doing a mini tour of Ayrshire (!) – PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE – only turn off for Dalry at SHARPHILL ROUNDABOUT **
Second Set of Directions
From the M8, coming from Glasgow, take the A 737 turn-off for Irvine – this is immediately after the turn-off for Glasgow Airport. Follow the signs for Dalry.
On arriving at Dalry, keep going until you reach a set of traffic lights and turn to your left here. Go down the hill, and just after the Lidl supermarket, you will see the B714 road sign for Saltcoats – turn to your right.
Go for approximately five more miles and then you will see the Brown Tourist Board signs for Lochwood Farm Steading. Turn to your left and go for one further mile – we are the THIRD farm on the left handside.
Please Have A Safe Journey !
