The Scottish Maritime Museum at Irvine may be a bit quiet in winter, but the Boatshop and the Puffer Cafe are well worth seeing. I enjoyed the display of model ships and the shop has well priced items. The staff are very helpful and the selection of maritime books is good. The views across the estuary from the cafe are fascinating with the estuary, mudflats, the old Big Idea building and Irvine Harbourside. The Linthouse building is closed at the moment, however it is very impressive externally.
