Saltcoats, North Ayrshire

While staying Largs for the weekend, we decided to take a short trip down coast towards Saltcoats, which is where the current Scottish Manager and Chelsea legend Steve Clarke was born. Also, Saltcoats is a small town on the west coast of North Ayrshire, Scotland. The name is derived from the town's earliest industry when salt was harvested from the sea water of the Firth of Clyde, carried out in small cottages along the shore. It is part of the 'Three Towns' conurbation along with Ardrossan and Stevenston.
