Driving from Glasgow / Glasgow International Airport / Greenock to Largs

When travelling from Glasgow/Glasgow International Airport there are two ways you can go. The first option is to drive down the coast, through Greenock. From Glasgow, head west on the M8 towards Greenock, and then from Greenock head south on the A78 towards Largs. You will pass through Wemyss Bay and Skelmorlie before arriving at the north end of Largs.

Largs town centre can be reached by following the main road which runs adjacent to the promenade, offering lovely views of the Clyde and the Islands.

The second option is to head west on the M8, and shortly after the airport turn off, you take the A737 towards Irvine onto the dual carriageway. Pass by Johnstone, Kilbarchan and Howwood, then turn right onto the A760 at the small roudabout, heading into Lochwinnoch (you should pass The Hungry Monk). Continue on into Kilbirnie and then follow the signs for Largs. This route is slightly quicker, and brings you in at the bottom of the Haylie Brae road, which is at the south end of Largs. By turning right at the traffic lights you will make your way into the town centre, or by turning left you will be heading to the Marina, Kelburn Country Centre, Largs Golf Club and 5 mins along the road is the next village Fairlie.
