About West of Scotland Boat Jumble
WSBJ may be a new name in the boat jumble calendar but it is really a continuation of the Scottish Boat Jumble, which has been running for almost 30 years, under a new title.
The good news is that the West of Scotland Boat Jumble has returned to its original venue at the harbourside at Irvine, Ayrshire. Under new management, it is now even better value for money for both exhibitors and public alike.
Free car parking is available on site and accompanied children have free admission to the event.
Travelling to WSBJ is very easy. Approaching Irvine by car, simply follow the signs for Irvine Harbourside and then to the Scottish Maritime Museum. Public transport is excellent with frequent bus and train services to within 200m of the event. Travel by air to nearby Glasgow Prestwick (7miles) or Glasgow International (20 miles).
Coming by boat is also possible, ferries from Northern Ireland dock at nearby Troon and if arriving by private boat, berths are available within Irvine Harbour at the Visitor’s Wharf. Refreshments and food are available on site throughout the event and excellent pubs and restaurants are available in the neighbourhood.
Nearby Rivergate Shopping Centre offers 50 stores and eateries under one roof whilst the Magnum Leisure Centre offers a great day out for all the family.
