Woodside, a historically and architecturally important estate, was the home of the Ralstoun family from 1551 until the late 18th century. During the 19th century the estate was owned by the Cochran-Patricks, a wealthy and well-connected Ayrshire family. Woodside House (separately listed) dates from 1551 but was remodelled in the mid 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. In the late 19th century Charles S S Johnston carried out extensive architectural works, giving a definite Baronial appearance.
Woodside South Lodge and North Lodge (separately listed) are most likely contemporary with each other and date from the mid 19th century. A period of expansion occurred at Woodside in 1848 when the house was extended to the rear for William Cochran-Patrick (1812-1858). West Woodside (formerly the stables, separately listed) is later, possibly circa 1860, after his great nephew Robert William Cochran-Patrick (1842-1897) inherited the estate.
