A local man is claiming that more middle-aged men seem to be escorted by "exotic younger women."
In a letter to the Largs & Millport News Mr Paul McFarlane of West Kilbride wrote:
"I have noticed on my recent visits to Largs and the surrounding area that there seems to be more and more middle-aged gentlemen enjoying the summer with beautiful young Asian/Oriental/exotic looking ladies on their arms.
"This made me wonder what the reason for this could be. My first thought was that perhaps there was no single, middle-aged Scottish ladies in the area. However, as a divorced middle-aged gentleman myself, I know this is not the case as I have dated several myself in the last 18 months or so!"
