Three Towns drone images

Post by iain » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:07 pm

I bought a drone recently and thought I’d post some shots. I’ll add more as time goes on.

Ardeer Quarry Local Nature Reserve, with the former nylon plant site behind and Highfield Drive/Kilwinning Road to the left.

The top end of Stevenston from Ardeer Rec, with the overgrown walled garden of Ardeer House in the foreground, and the solar farm just discernible near the top right of the frame.

The mudflats and saltmarsh on the Ardeer Peninsula. The saltmarsh is the green area in the foreground covered in brackish pools. This estuary contains the largest saltmarsh in Ayrshire.

Well done Iain! much appreciated, it adds a new dimension as to what many of us expats remember. :D I can pick the spot where the Rec building stood at the bottom of the brae.

Very nice, Iain, I can see my great grandparents' headstone in that first image - Hugh McCallum & Mary Kelly. It was a red letter day when I found it a few years back. :)

It is a retractable bridge to let boats in and out of the harbour.

Great footage of the Beach and 'Sandy Hills' with a good view of Stevenston Burn at the start of the video as well.
Also noticed part of Sandylands Caravan Park at the extreme top right. :)
