Maggie Law Maritime Museum

Housed in the old two storey coastguard building, beside the old harbour and slipway (the Gutty) in the centre of Gourdon, the 'Maggie Law' was one of the first inshore lifeboats, built in 1890, rowed by six men, and was in service for 40 years and saved 36 lives. However, there is a lot more besides, including connections to the Titanic.
