Dunure Harbour 200 years old

11:50 AM

The harbour at Dunure is celebrating its 200th anniversary this week.  The Dunure Harbour Committee Association's website has details about all the events being planned but they include on Friday 20th May crafts such as Knotting, Fishing Net making, Rope splicing and Lobster Pot making in the harbour and on boats. As well as games, stories and a quiz.  Saturday 21st is the main day with many different activities including a re-enactment of the charter of ownership being landed by boat and formally presented to Thomas Kennedy of Dunure.

You can read an article about it in the Ayrshire Post here.

The Royal Commission for Ancient and Historical Monuments also has some photos of the harbour taken in the 1970s I think - view them here.

The Ballast Trust has some great photographs of Dunure Harbour and Boats as part of our Dan McDonald collection which we scanned in response to an enquiry.  Here is a selection all of which were taken in 1939.  (click to enlarge)

We also have some older mystery photos of the Harbour and Castle which we have scanned and uploaded to our flickr page.
