Places That We Know


River of Stories

A 360° journey

Come with us now on a journey into the past, as we pluck tales like droplets from the swirling waters of the Garnock. Don’t be afraid, let go and slip deep into the river of time...

Using 360° technology to transport you across time and space, River of Stories allows you to step inside 5 magical and mysterious stories from the lands surrounding the River Garnock:

  • St Winning & the River Curse
  • The Maid & the Missing Silverware
  • Ringan Semple, the Warlock of Peel Island
  • The Deil’s hoofprint at Ardrossan Castle
  • Cleeves Coves: The Great Court of the Elfhame

River of Stories was developed through collaboration and consultation with local people across the Muirshiel Hills, Lochwinnoch, the Garnock Valley, Three Towns, Kilwinning & Irvine.
