Largs is famous for its Viking History. The battle of Largs was fought here against maurauding Vikings 1300 years ago. A permanent exhibition to the Viking invasion "Vikingar" operates throughout the year. Largs also hosts a Viking festival week each September which culminates in a recreation of the ancient battle and ends with the burning of a Viking longboat.
The small ferry terminal connects the mainland with the town of Millport on Greater Cumbrae.

Finally, no visit to Largs would be complete without sampling the delights of its famous ice cream shops.
