Access

Parking

The level tarmac car park is next to the site.

Visitor centre

The visitor centre is step free.

Monument

Main routes around the monument are gravel or grass. The grass is well maintained, but is naturally firmer during dry weather.

There are numerous archaeological remains within the grass, which can be difficult to see.

Some rooms have a step at the threshold, but these aren’t on main circulation routes.

The gatehouse is up a stone spiral staircase with no handrail. Steps are uneven and light levels can be very low.

Toilets

Nearest adapted toilet is about seven miles away at:

Debenhams
Ayr Central Shopping Centre
Ayr
KA7 1TN

Dogs

Assistance dogs are permitted at all our sites and within roofed areas.  

Visitors' dogs are allowed at Crossraguel Abbey, but are not permitted in roofed areas. 

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and not left unattended at any time. Owners must pick up after their dogs
