If you are driving from the north, the two main routes are via the A78 (Irvine, Saltcoats, Ardorssan), and the M77/A77 (Kilmarnock, Glasgow).In both cases follow the directions to Prestwick Airport via the A79. After exiting the roundabout which takes you onto the A79, approximately 200 yards on your left you will see Prestwick Airport, and also a Goodrich building. At the bottom of the incline there is a roundabout. Go straight on (second exit). After approximately 0.50 miles you will see a small roundabout in front of Prestwick Airport, again go straight through. At the next roundabout take the third exit (following the sign for Prestwick). You will pass Monkton & Prestwick North Parish Church on your left, and Bryson's Garage on the right.
St Nicholas is on the far side of Prestwick Main Street, so carry straight on passing the Co-operative supermarket on your right. There are now only three streets you can turn left on - Hunter Street, St Quivox Road, and Bellevue Road. Carry on past Hunter Street, and St Quivox. After approximately 100 yards you will see St Nicholas Parish Church on your left. Take the first left onto Bellevue Road, and after a small but steep incline you will see a free car park on your right. Don't worry if you miss the Bellevue Road exit. Pass the traffic lights, and immediately turn left, drive up the incline and you have reached the car park.
If travelling from the south the best way to approach Prestwick is using the A77 following the road signs for Prestwick Airport via the A79, and follow the directions above.
If travelling from Ayr use the A79 passing Sainsburys supermarket on the
right (at Prestwick Toll), and drive straight on. After
approximately 0.50 mile there are a set of traffic lights. Immediately after
the traffic lights go into the right lane and turn right onto Bellevue Road.
After a small but steep incline there is a free car park on the right. St
Nicholas Parish Church is on your left.
