There are no restrictions in place in terms of walking your dogs on local beaches.
There were concerns raised following national newspaper reports, and online website and social media, that new restrictions were in place in relation to beaches in Largs, Millport, Fairlie and West Kilbride.
A council spokesman responded: "We love dogs at North Ayrshire Council. So just to clear things up - once and for all - there are NO restrictions on walking your dogs on our beaches. Just be responsible, respectful and clear up any mess."
