Continuing with the road trip to South Ayrhire, we are still in Irvine after having visited Dundonald and Troon. The main purpose of the visit was to see some of the Scottish Open Golf Championship, but more of that later.

Let's explore a little bit more of Irvine...

An old puffer down by the waterside




Attractive riverfront apartments


Quaint cottages


Swans on the River Irvine


The view to the north


Unusual


but impressive


Part of the Scottish Maritime Museum

I enjoyed being parked up by the river.


It was interesting to walk round the area


Once the biggest sports centre in Europe, the Magnum Centre is now deserted and dilapidated


I did manage a wee visit here!


but not here


It was a pleasant walk along the riverside




I just had to!


The Ship Inn...

After a long day walking the golf course, it was always good to get back to the van. Some refreshment was in order at times...

There caught my eye in the Ship Inn




It would have been rude not to!


The bar menu was tempting too


This is where I was parked up


near the river


and the beach
