Yep! We used to go on Sunday School coach trips! Can't think it will have changed much - it's like the Burg but without matelots!

There is (or was) a NATO fuelling jetty in Fairlie, just down the coast from Largs.

We stopped there in the '80s and had a walk to Largs.
It was shut. :(

As for Fairlie!! I’ll post a pic when i get to my pc!! Did a forced landing in a car park there because the landing site at the NATO jetty was blocked by a pongo landie!!!!
OK, edited bit. Add piccy of sick Sea King after forced landing!

Seem to recall fantastic Italian ice cream shop. Have a great holiday.
Most West coast of Scotland towns have brilliant Italian ice cream shops - Dino's in the Burg for example is but one. When I was a kid there were 4 or 5 in the Burg and they ran the chippies too. But even round the corner, where Jack feared to tread (near Coulport) in Cove and Kilgreggan is/was a great ice cream place.

If we have the all clear I will give Largs a miss next year as I want to do the Jurassic Coast based in Bournemouth , will also give me an excuse to travel to South Island for a DTS with Wightsparker and Bob. o_O
