Windyhill Farm is located in a secluded elevated position approximately 1 mile up a private farm road with arguably the best panoramic views in Ayrshire. Close to the small rural village of Waterside and approximately 6.5 miles north of Galston. The village lies on the Craufurdland Water and historically provided employment to the area when it powered a local carding mill. An OS map of 1856 shows that whin stone and sandstone quarries were located downstream of the mill. Despite its rural location, Waterside is a popular base for commuters to Glasgow and offers access to the city centre via the M77. Nearby Galston offers a variety of local amenities including a doctor’s surgery, chemist, supermarket and both primary and secondary schooling. Private schooling is available at Belmont House (11 miles) and Hutchesons’ (16 miles) in Glasgow and Wellington School (22 miles) in Ayr. A wider range of high street shops are available in Kilmarnock (7.2 miles) and Silverburn Shopping Centre, with over 100 shops, restaurants and cinema is just 13.3 miles distant. Glasgow Prestwick Airport (16.5 miles) and Glasgow Airport (24 miles) offer national and international flights.
