Season: autumn

Located on the Gulf Stream to the north of Fairlie, Largs benefits from a mild climate, as witnessed by the palm trees on the seafront.  The town is popular with visitors from Glasgow and the main beach has a pleasing arc to it, situated at the northern end of the town. The North Promenade runs behind the beach and there are cafes and restaurants to enjoy here, plus a boating lake nearby.  Pleasant views to Great Cumbrae Island and the Isle of Bute complete the picture.
