Monkton is a lovely little village in the Parish of Monkton and Prestwick in South Ayrshire, surrounded by breath-taking views and scenery.

Ayr is a very popular and pretty seaside resort, complete with its own charming seafront and leafy suburbs. Ayr's seafront is home to miles and miles of beautiful golden sandy beaches which make it the perfect place for picnics and building sandcastles!
