Attraction Information

Sunbathe and discover wonderful views of the Clyde Estuary and Little Cumbrae at Ardrossan Beach in South Scotland.

This popular resort beach puts you in the perfect location to see the local landmarks without leaving your beach towel. You'll have no problem spotting the iconic 52-foot stone tower, built in 1811, at the RSPB's Horse Island birds reserve.

A lazy day at the beach is a firm family favourite - just unwind and enjoy the sun to the sound of kids playing and waves washing on the shore with a quiet “Woosh”. Want more fun? Ardrossan Beach is popular amongst watersports lovers and features a variety of boat tours.
