Irvine Harbourside

the story of a busy harbour and its people

Research initiated by the 2012/17 Harbourside Heritage Project,
led by Irvine Burns Club, 
supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund,
with North Ayrshire Council and many local organisations

Irvine Harbourside celebrates the people and activities of the harbour, once centred on industry and today on leisure;
the website is about to be updated, but all the information, and more, will continue to be available.
