A77 at Kirkoswald
Kirkoswald (Scots: Kirkossald) is a village in the Carrick district of Ayrshire, 1 miles from the coast and four miles southwest of Maybole. It takes its name from its kirk (church), dedicated to Oswald of Northumbria, who is said to have won a battle here in the 7th century.
The A77 Road
The A77 is a major road which runs for 92 miles in a south westerly direction from the city of Glasgow, past the towns of Giffnock, Newton Mearns, Kilmarnock, Prestwick, Ayr, Maybole, Girvan and Stranraer to Portpatrick on the Irish Sea. It has full trunk road status from the terminus of the M77 motorway at Fenwick to the junction with the A75 in Stranraer.

The A77 is an important link from Glasgow to Prestwick Airport and the three main Northern Ireland ferry terminals at Stranraer, Cairnryan, and Troon. As a result, the road is subject to a busy mixture of commuter, tourist and heavy goods vehicle traffic which has necessitated upgrades to many sections.
