From Portencross it is said that the bodies of the Kings of Scotland lay in wait to be taken over to the Isle of Iona. From its vantage point on the River Clyde estuary this can be seen to be realistic. Inside the fortress the winding stairs take you to the top and you get an impressive view over to the Isle Of Aarron and Colonsay it is worth visiting for this reason. The history of the fortress is nicely laid out with the help and support of attendants to guide you around this restored monument. The carpark is free with picnic benches that give excellent views across the Clyde Esturary with its passing ships , boats and diving Gannets. Also from here are pleasant walks along the sea front toward Largs which give you nice views towards Millport with the flora and fauna on both sides of the track.
