Friday photo - Saltcoats

4:43 PM

Today's image is a pretty poor quality one of Saltcoats Harbour.  I would have scanned in a better one but we've spent the whole day moving the office around and the scanner isn't set up again yet.


Saltcoats Harbour was built by Robert Cunninghame primarily for the export of his Uncle's Stevenston coal to Ireland. The outer pier was added around 1800, at that time Saltcoats was a busy port with both local and foreign shipping.  Saltcoats as a town has an interesting history, being once split between the Cunninghame and Montgomerie families.  More information here.
