Re: The Glasgow, Paisley and Ardrossan Canal

Very interesting, Hughie. Particularly interesting is the revelation that the original proposal was to have the canal terminate at Saltcoats Harbour. It would appear from all this that the Earl of Eglinton didn't develop Ardrossan Harbour out of mere desire to do Saltcoats down, but because it was t...
