Kerryquoy quay
Kerryquoy quay
When the first Marquess of Bute rebuilt Kerrycroy as a model village in 1803, an old quay was rebuilt to provide a more sheltered anchorage.

Until the new pier at Rothesay was opened in 1822, Kerrycroy had the most important link to the mainland with a daily post-boat ferry which connected to Largs. Earlier, in the sixteenth century, there had been a ferry to Portencross on the Ayrshire coast.
