Troon Ferry Terminal - South Ayrshire

Troon Ferry Terminal, South Ayrshire, Scotland

The now unused ferry terminal next to the marina by Troon harbour.

Taken on a sunny afternoon in March 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.

It has been decided not to use this location as the Arran ferry terminal.

The car park in the foreground is also part of the set-up.

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.
