27 Crosshouse Road Kilmaurs KA3 2SA (Mr and Mrs R Mair): The garden to the rear of the house is in a sheltered position allowing growth of a wide range of plants which offer both spring and summer interest. Each of the two back garden areas contain both a pond and patio. The lower garden has about a third of its area devoted to a productive kitchen garden, soft fruit area and a cold greenhouse. The upper garden is entirely given over to flowering shrubs, perennials, climbers and annuals. The garden has been developed over 40 years.
5 Kirkton Road Kilmaurs KA3 2NW (Mr F Murray): A small burn runs through this one-acre garden. Informal planting lies to the south, fairly steeply banked with bulbs, bluebells, specimen trees and a short woodland walk. The north side is laid out in formal lawns, edged by beech hedging and shrub plantations, divided by dry-stone dykes. Visitors will find a 17th-century doocot which once served Tour House as a larder. To the back of the house lies the working garden, with polytunnels for roses, dahlias and chrysanthemums.
