Troon Ferry Terminal - Disused
Troon, South Ayrshire
The now empty ferry terminal next to the marina by Troon harbour.
Taken on a sunny afternoon in March 2016 with the light from the south-west in a hazy sky.
On the left is the marina with the harbour in the distance.
The long extended pier to the right allowed the ferry to load and unload at any state of the tide.
What's it going to be used for now? Assuming they don't return it to use as a ferry terminal
- and in light of the lack of enough parking spaces that seems very unlikely -
what do the powers-that-be plan to do with it?
Why don't they use the land to build something to attract day-visitors and tourists?
Something to actually create interest in the town and encourage people to spend money
in the shops and local businesses.
Something to enhance the town for residents and visitors alike
- not just create noise, pollution and added traffic.
As the ferry “Caledonian Isles” leaves Ardrossan for Brodick you can see the number of cars in the car park, this on a midweek afternoon in March.
We counted over 200 cars and vans - taking up an enormous amount of space - and there's room for a lot more if need be.
Remember that many cars, vans and lorries that were in the car park until a few minutes before this photo was taken have now sailed off on the ferry.
Troon ferry terminal has a car park for about 50 cars and limited space within the terminal.
Where do the rest go? Maybe up to 300 cars in high season.

The terminal buildings and the maze of white lines in the car and lorry parks.
The car park in the foreground is also part of the set-up.

Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
