Method in our madness?
Our task is to try to dig out the harbour basin as deeply as possible whilst also trying to maintain a decent depth of water in the channel.
Until recently we have been using a digger mounted barge, a tracked digger and two dump trucks.
Unfortunately the cost of maintaining the trucks and barge outweighed their usefulness and they have now been scrapped.
Digging in the immediate future has therefore been suspended.

 page, thanks again Mark and let's hope we see you again next year.

Welcome to our website!

This web site has been created in an effort  to keep both locals and visitors to the area informed on what is happening with Maidens Harbour.
The harbour is owned by Maidens Harbour Trust and managed by Maidens Harbour Trust Management Committee.
The ultimate aim is whilst remaining in community ownership to gradually improve and develop the harbour until such times as it is financially self sustaining.

2016 Harbour Gala

A final decision is yet to be made regarding the above, however it looks very much like there will be no harbour gala this year not least due to the charge South Ayrshire Council wish to levy in regard to supply and erection of stalls.

2016 AGM

This has now been rescheduled to Saturday 30th April 10.00 AM in Maidens Bowling Green Clubhouse

We regret that we have no berths currently available.
For berthing or launching enquiries you can contact our harbourmaster Jim Eaglesham on

You are visitor no.

Our funding for this work has come from three main sources.
Firstly, Berthing Fees; second, Fundraising activities (mainly Harbour Gala) and thirdly Grants from suitable bodies.
In addition we have in 
past received two substantial donations from private indivuals.
This has allowed us to make several improvements including installation of second hand pontoons, the provision of a limited number of metered power outlets, slipway extension and a picnic and viewing area.
