Directions (Route Map)

Craigie Estate lies within Ayr, close to the town centre, the railway station, and Ayr Race Course.

From the north: Leave the A77 at the Whitletts (Ayr north) Roundabout, taking the A719 towards the town centre (north) and the Race Course. Pass Tesco and the Race Course on your left, and take the next left turn on to the B747. Go straight on through the next traffic lights at the junction with Craigie Way on the left (signposted for the University of Paisley Craigie Campus), and follow the road for another 250 yards towards the town centre until it bends to the right. At this bend, turn left into the driveway of the Craigie Estate.

From the south: Take the A713 or the A70 into Ayr from the A77. At the Railway Station double roundabout, take the A79 Station Road north, past the railway station on your left and over the river to the Fire Station roundabout. Go straight through the roundabout, taking the B747 signposted for the Race Course and the by-pass. The driveway of the Craigie Estate is on the right, just 100 yards from the roundabout.

All routes: Follow the drive towards Craigie House. At the house, continue past it, turning slightly to the right to a car park area with open park beyond. This is the shooting field.
