PARKING: There is no vehicular access to Ivybank as it is on a pedestrian footpath. Parking is available , kerbside, in Argyle Street, or in the Argyle Street car park (south). This is a minute or two from the house. Parking in the car park is free from 5pm to 8am and all day Sunday. Outwith these times, charges apply. Tickets can be purchased the previous evening.
DIRECTIONS: Go to the bottom of the car park, turn left and Ivynak is the third house on the left, with a pale green door. The house name is above the door. The post code is KY16 9DA but Google shows the property much further west than it is (many other local properties are also wrongly located). KY16 9EX is a little more representative - though it's not as near the main road as this shows.
