Glasgow to Largs

Hi, can anyone local advise me the best way to get from Glasgow Airport to Largs and back again in July?

Going round Scotland and Largs Marina is our start and finish point.

Thanks

Alex simplest way follow M8 to Greenock then pick up A78 at the town roundabout in Greenock down coast to Largs. You'll follow the Clyde all the way There are other ways but I think this will be easier if you don't know area. B

If you are going public transport then I think you are looking at the train, there is bus service linking you to the train station from the airport. Traveline Scotland website will provide, times, numbers, costs etc.
