Description

Welcome to Ayrshire & Inverclyde's, Coast and Seaside...

On the lower reaches of the Clyde, Gourock’s Esplanade was home to the industrialists, ship-owners and investors who made this town affluent in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Other notable buildings here include the Custom House, Victoria Tower, and the Old West Kirk, noted for its stained glass. The Ocean Terminal serves as a calling point for cruise ships crossing the Atlantic and ferries cross the Clyde from nearby Gourock.
Largs is a popular seaside resort with a pier, the town markets itself on its historic links with the Vikings and an annual festival is held each year in early September. In 1263 it was the site of the Battle of Largs between the Norwegian and the Scottish armies. it is best known for 'Nardinis', the famous ice cream parlour, cafe and restaurant, that dominates the esplanade. St. Columba's Parish Church is situated opposite Nardinis and contains a Heritage Centre which is well worth a visit.
Ardrossan is located on the edge of an area of exceptional natural beauty. The towering peaks of the Isle of Arran are starkly visible on a cold sunny day. Beyond, one can see the Paps of Jura and the Mull of Kintyre. Offshore is the small Horse Isle, an RSPB reserve and home to nationally important populations of herring gulls and lesser black backed gulls. The Holm Plantation area dividing Ardrossan and Saltcoats is a popular area for alternative walks to the seaside. Saltcoats’ beautiful sandy beach makes it a popular destination for holiday makers and daytrippers.
Troon is famous for its Royal Troon golf course, one of the hosts to the Open Golf Championship. The course is chosen to host this annual event roughly every seven years. The Harbour is now a fishing port, yachting marina, seasonal passenger ferry port and Ro-Ro ferry terminal for timber and containers. Troon has over the past few years become a popular place for Kitesurfing. The strong winds coming from the Atlantic and from the north down the Firth of Clyde make it an ideal spot. Troon also hosts an annual music Festival held in the autumn known as Live@Troon.
To the south of Prestwick with its airport and golf course lies the town of Ayr. Here you can discover the life and times of Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns, born in Alloway in the southern outskirts of Ayr in 1759, at the Burns National Heritage Park. You can visit architect Robert Adams' masterpiece Culzean Castle and Country Park near Maybole. Or enjoy the 'Sport of Kings' at Ayr Racecourse, Scotland's premier racing centre offering more racing days than any other Scottish course including the Scottish Grand National and the Ayr Gold Cup.
