Lobster Pots, Corrie, Isle of Arran

The Isle of Arran can be accessed via CalMac ferry from the mainland at Ardrossan, Ayrshire.
Corrie has two harbours and this photograph shows the smaller of the two and is often called Corrie Port.It was the stopping off point for the steamers that from the mid 1800s linked many of Arran's coastal villages with a wider network of Clyde ports.
Corrie is on the East coast and as well as fishing the harbour was associated with the export of limestone quarried from caves in the surrounding mountains.
