Description

This signal box was located between West Kilbride (to the north) and Ardrossan (Parkhouse Junction). The box was on the east side of the line a short way south of the Kirkland Glen Viaduct. The box opened in 1896, there may have been a temporary box just prior to this (although this is not shown on the 1896 OS map).

In the Second World War the Montfode Oil Depot opened to the south.
