Aviaries seem to have been quite common in Ayrshire.

There's a nice one at Dean Castle, another at Culzean (along with a pagoda that was used to house a menagerie although it is empty now) and yet another at Eglinton.

Funny you should say that; I was thinking the same about your "WW" photo on the 'colours' thread.

70m plan for a bay of plenty







AMBITIOUS plans have been unveiled for a massive 70million scheme to transform
a historic harbour area in Ayrshire.


The proposals would create a new community - with shops, leisure facilities and
work places - at Irvine's harbourside.

More than 300 homes, many aimed at first-time buyers, are to be built in the
area and it's hoped around 160 permanent jobs will be created.

Developers believe the new community will also be popular with commuters
to Glasgow - only a 30-minute drive away and linked with a regular train service.

It's the biggest development planned for Irvine - one of Scotland's oldest Royal
Burghs - since it became a New Town in the 1960s.

Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, formed to breathe new life into five North
Ayrshire towns, today announced one of the UK's leading developers, Urban
Splash, was the "preferred partner" for the development.

It's expected the development will create 100 construction jobs and on completion
around 160 permanent and part-time jobs.

The project is the first major development to be unveiled by Irvine Bay Regeneration
Company since it was established just over a year ago.

The company has an ambitious 10-year plan to breathe new life into the Ayrshire
towns of Irvine, Ardrossan, Saltcoats, Stevenston and Kilwinning.

They all have railway stations and Ardrossan is the ferry port to Arran and other
west coast islands.

Took the opportunity to take some photos last week whilst visiting my mother in hospital.

The weather was fantastic.

Clyde harbour area casts off its old image



A MAJOR step has been taken to rejuvenate the derelict harbour area of a faded
Clydeside resort.


The 40-acre site at Ardrossan - which has been an eyesore for years - is
to be transformed by building new homes, shops, bars, cafes and restaurants
and an extended marina.

This week the 19th century listed pumphouse building, which has lain
unused for years, was reopened as a bar and bistro.

The new restaurant was opened by the Cecchini family, who have had bars
in Ayrshire for the past 20 years.

It is part of a 50million plan to regenerate the Ayrshire town which in
2006 was shortlisted for a carbuncle award as one of the most dismal
places to live.

The blueprint for the town is a joint initiative involving Irvine Bay Regeneration
Company, Clydeport, Scottish Enterprise Ayrshire and North Ayrshire Council.

Hi Folks

I wonder if anyone could help me out with something please.

It's my mother's 91st birthday at the end of this month and instead of the usual flowery cards etc, I'd like to do her something with old photos of Irvine, if possible.

However, I've googled and googled and I can't actually find what I'm looking for.

I wondered if anyone had any photos of Old Irvine Town that they'd be willing to post and to let me have a copy of at all? In particular I'm looking for Montgomery Street or the Harbour area.

Thanks a million

Sal

I helped someone recently with one of these digital frames.

It was for a friend of my wife who wanted to give her mother something for her birthday. I scanned a whole load of their family photos and loaded them on to a memory card. It is a good idea if you can get your hands on any old photos.

There is an old postcard booklet for Irvine. Have you got that Sally?

I only have one old postcard photo of Irvine. I will try and post it up for you.

Good luck with your project.

Hello Alex

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply, much appreciated.

No, I don't have that postcard booklet of Irvine, do you know where I might get one?

In the meantime, I'll keep googling! lol

Thanks for the good luck wishes.
