About Maidens

Maidens is a fishing village at the southern end of Maidenhead Bay two miles north of Turnberry and five miles west of Maybole. The village retains an old-world air of peace and tranquility and is a favourite spot for artists and camera enthusiasts. It was at Maidens that Robert the Bruce landed when he sailed from Rathlin Island.

The harbour, like many west coast harbours, was originally built for fishing but today is mainly used by those who sail for pleasure.
