Sea and a Sunset in Scotland

When the weather actually behaves in Scotland there's one place I love to visit - Largs. It's only an hour away from Glasgow by car and 45 minutes on the train with a train station in the centre of Largs. The West Coastal town is a tourist's treat and ideal for Scottish residents looking for a perfect day at the seaside. It has a lengthy seafront popular with families, couples, dog walkers and pensioners. 


And on the 15 August me and my friends were amongst those soaking up the sun and enjoying the sea view. There is restaurants, cafes, convenience and gift shops located across from the seafront. To make a full day of it there is the option to visit Millport in the island of cumbrae by a ferry. The Cal Mac ferries depart frequently from the ferry terminal which is right on the sea front with a journey to Millport of ten minutes.

If you're after a bit of history then it can be found at the Vikingar centre a factual experience of Scotland's Viking past. It's the perfect educational trip for kids. Whilst I was on the seafront I seen preparations for a Vikingar festival being made along the seafront for more information visit their website: http://www.largsvikingfestival.com/

Before we headed home we went for dinner and ice cream from the world famous Nardinis restaraunt and ice cream parlour - a Largs ritual. When we were fed and watered we took photgraphs of the sunset a perfect end to our day out.
