Day 16 - Scotland West Coast - Largs - Things to do and see

Around Largs (click on name to see on my Google Map), check out the following:

Kelburn Castle and Country Centre has a bizzare graffiti'd castle, which somehow looks good! As well as horse riding, and a "secret forest", with different exotic species of plants, and a Chinese Pagoda, maze and Gingerbread House.

For walkers, the Ayreshire Coastal Path starts in Skelmorie north of Largs, and ends up in Glenapp. It taks about 50 hours to walk.

The small Cumbrae islands just offshore from Largs can be visited with Cumbrae Voyages, which offer wildlife boat trips from the mainland. You can potentially see dolphins and wales.

The beautiful Isle of Arran, which sits further offshore from Largs, is a relatively unknown attraction, with walking, golf courses and mountain biking. Check out the tourism website. While you're on Arran, and you've got the cash to spare, fly over the area with Arran Helicopter Tours.
