The Local Area
near Wemyss Bay Holiday Park
Perched on top of wooded slopes overlooking the breathtaking views of the Firth of Clyde, Wemyss Bay is in a great part of Scotland for exploring the west coast. Did you know Wemyss Bay used to be owned by Robert Wallace, the gentleman who introduced postage stamps?
Just a short ferry crossing takes you to the isles of Arran, Cumbrae and Bute which are havens of history and heritage. Step ashore on Bute to an island with a history that goes back to early Christian settlements and Viking invasions.
Or take a daytrip to Arran, one of Scotland's most southerly isles, to walk round the Arran Coastal Way - a 50 mile route.
But don't worry, there are many cafes and restaurants for refreshment in the towns and villages on this 167 square mile isle.
