Fairlie, on the North Ayrshire coast, sits on the eastern shore of the Firth of Clyde and looks across to the Isle of Arran and the Cumbraes.  To the South lie the Portencross coast SSSi and the Hunterston SSSi sites – valuable feeding grounds for seabirds and waders.

The Fairlie Coastal Trust was established in 2017 to help protect and promote the beautiful coastline and bay. The group have four key themes which they aim to focus on developing over time. These are Environment, Community, Activity and Heritage.

Community: To strengthen the relationship between the community of Fairlie and the outstanding coastal environment through the development of a coastal hub and events

Activity: To encourage and enable the community to participate in coastal and water-based activities in and around the Fairlie bay in a safe and appropriate way.

Heritage: To capture and promote Fairlie’s rich maritime history and culture to ensure it is preserved and celebrated for years to come.
