“A neat place to visit !”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

We stayed in Largs for 3 days and enjoyed the people, food and the ease to get to other places along the coast. Visited museums in Ayrshire, Dundonald castle, Culzean castle, Burns cottage. We will be back to try to take in all that we missed. Our B&B was right next to the train station and only a short walk into town for supper. A great place to walk along the shore and talk with the local people who were always willing to share their ideas and love of the area.

“Largs is a wonderful place to visit”
Reviewed August 18, 2009

We visited Largs for the British Optimist Nationals in August 2009 (children's sailing dinghies).

Largs is a seaside resort, I guess serving Glasgow way back when, and has all the charm of British seaside resorts, but a whole lot of beauty as well.

It sits on the shore of the Firth of Clyde. The view from the shore is dominated by the Isle of Cumbrae, but when the sun shines, the vista beyond is breath taking.

We staying in a b&b in town called Tigh-na-Ligh Guesthouse (www.tighnaligh.com ) which was excellent. The proprietors, Bill and Rosie couldn't have been more fantastic.

If you get a chance to visit Millport, catch the ferry from Largs, then the bus, then hire a bike. The fish and chip shop on the dock sell deep-friend Mars bar - a culinary delight that has to be tried...at least once!

We ate out a few times in Largs, The Green Shutters / Nardini by the docks was fantastic and good value. The Viking fish and chip shop on the promenade is excellent and apparently the best in town (and you can't go to the seaside without fish and chips!). The highlight however is Nardinis right on the seafront - it's a white art deco building. They have a good pizza place, but we developed a ritual of trying the World famous (world famous for people that have been to Largs and seen the sign saying world famous anyway) ice creams which are amazing.

Because we were there for the sailing, there is also a good restaurant at the Marina.

If possible, I recommend you try and get on the water on one of the tours. The sea life is adundant. We saw dolphins, seals, jellyfish, starfish and some amazing (as yet unidentified) albatross type birds that dive-bombed fish.

If you get there, I hope you have a good time.

“a very good guest house in largs”
Reviewed August 5, 2009

we spend a very good night at the whin park guest house in Largs the day before our return to France. The owners of the house have been very kind with us, giving us many advice and even let me use their laptop to confirm our reservation. The guesthouse is very near to the town (10 mn by foot) but quiet

“Step back in time to Largs!”
Reviewed August 26, 2006

The lovely seaside town of Largs is quaint and old fashioned - definitely worth a visit. The restaurants and cafes serve a good standard of food - however be warned that due to licensing laws, children need to be off the premises by 8pm - so plan your evening meals early! this does not apply to hotels.
Take a trip out on the speed boat to see the seals - really exhilerating and fun.
Vikingar is worth a visit - our children found it informative and fun. There is a small swimming pool and a good soft play area which kept them amused for ages.
Troon is worth a visit - a few miles from Largs - with a nice sandy beach.
If you get a chance to see a play by the local theatre company (in a hall!) do go - it's alot of fun with a real community spirit.
