Orangefield, Prestwick (also known as Monkton House)4006

Kilmarnock, Scotland

Brief Description

The small 18th-century designed landscape at Orangefield was associated with a mansion which replaced the earlier Monkton House. The house and the landscape have since been obliterated by the runway of Prestwick International Airport, although one or two trees may survive.

History

By the late-18th century the grounds were reported to be in a state of neglect. The house became the control tower for the airport but was demolished in the 1960s when the airport expanded.
