Have a go - Coastal Rowing

Have a go - Coastal Rowing

Volunteers on the Building Communities by Building Boats have spent the last few months working with the Scottish Maritime Museum to build two St Ayles skiffs. Very shortly these two boats, the Garnock and the Avocet, will be finished and ready to go in the water.

To celebrate this achievement we would like to invite you to join us at the Scottish Maritime Museum for a day of fun activities.

  • Try your hand at rowing one of our new skiffs
  • Find out about the other work Garnock Connections are doing at the harbourside and across the landscape
  • Discover the wildlife of the Bogside SSSI and learn what makes Irvine harbour so unusual
  • Kids activities
We'll be at the Scottish Maritime Museum's Puffers Cafe on Saturday the 20th July, from 11:00 - 16:00 (Have a go rowing from 11:30)
20 Jul 2019 at 11:00am
until 20 Jul 2019 at 4:00pm

Garnock Connections

Garnock Connections is a suite of 25 projects that will restore a network of wildlife habitats and historic sites across the landscape, as well as encourage local people to become involved through public engagement opportunities.

The initiative will be coordinated by the Garnock Connections Landscape Partnership, which is made up of RSPB Scotland (lead partner), North Ayrshire Council, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), and the Scottish Wildlife Trust, with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) acting as an advisory body.

Garnock Connections has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
