Kilwinning, Scotland

Brief Description

Monkcastle is situated in the valley of the River Garnock surrounded by blocks and strips of planting. The remains of the 16th-century Monk Castle sit in woodland and the walled garden survives.


By the mid-17th century there was a small wooded estate at Monkcastle. The Miller family resided there from 1723 until at least the mid-19th century. A new house was built in 1820 to replace Monk Castle. There is a reference to thriving plantations in the mid-19th century.
