I just checked it was indeed the maternity hospital for Kilwinning so possibly Dalry which is only 6 miles away It was Called Ayrshire Central Hospital

Buckredden in 1954 depending upon where you lived.  Ayrshire Central later with transfer to Buckredden if everything straightforward.  Now all at Crosshouse Hospital Maternity unit.

Buckredden was the main maternity for the Ayrshire area.It was situated between Kilwinning and Irvine.I believe another Maternity hospital was in the grounds of Irvine Central Hospital .I nursed in the main Irvine Central Hospital in the late 1970's and the maternity [not that I worked there] was stillin operation then. But most of us 'baby boomers' and earlier were born at the Buckredden unit.

Conflicting Information , its seems there is a bit of confusion over the maternity units around Irvine / Kilwinning

There were 2 units about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile apart Buckreddan in Kilwinning also known as Maternity Home / Hospital , Kilwinning  and Ayrshire Central Hospital , Irvine also known as Irvine Central Hospital , with both Irvine or Kilwinning address
I have 2 brothers , born 1946 and 1949 both in Irvine Central
