Largs Beach

The north Ayrshire coast’s family favourite, bustling seaside resort Largs offers a great mix of attractions. Choose from a selection of themed boat trips available in the resort from day trips to the off-shore Cumbrae Islands with main resort Millport to a range of wildlife adventure cruises around the Lower Clyde. The regular ferry service to Millport is just a 15 minute cross and once there you can hire bikes and head off to explore the island with its famous cathedral.

Largs was famously invaded by the Vikings in 1263, albeit by the accidental drifting of Viking warriors into the harbour, resulting in the Battle of Largs. Find out more and visit the modern day award-winning Vikingar! Leisure complex which affords views across the Firth of Clyde. Main attraction within is the interactive Viking Experience focusing on the myths and legends around the Vikings – a great fun family attraction. Other on-site leisure facilities include a gym, swimming pool, theatre and Viking gift shop.

Largs sits on the coastline of Scotland’s largest regional park – the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park where you’ll find a choice of family activities. The town is within an hour’s drive of Glasgow Airport and city centre, and within easy reach of the Scottish Maritime Museum at Irvine, the Saltcoats town trail, North Ayrshire Museum and ferry services from Ardrossan to the Isle of Arran.
