Ayrshire Coastal Path 12: Largs Marina to Skelmorlie

There are two options for this final section of the Path, a superb higher level route visiting the site of an old hillfort with spectacular views over Largs and the Firth of Clyde - or an easier low level route along pleasant minor roads.


A mixture of metalled roads, beaten earth and grassy paths. The high route is very boggy in places - this is avoided on the low route which sticks to the minor roads.

Public Transport

Bus or train to centre of Largs (approx. 1km along route from start); bus to Skelmorlie or train to Wemyss Bay.


Largs marina. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
