LARGS Rotary is helping share the story of the town's rich history through an exciting new project.

Members have joined forces with North Ayrshire Council to established a storyboard trail from the north to the south of the promenade.

Largs residents and tourists will be able to enjoy six boards on the walk, spanning from the old Vanduarra Hotel along to the Pencil, which share the local history and information about landmarks in and around the town.

Former Largs Rotary president Ron Muir says his is delighted to see a project that has been long in the planning finally come to fruition.

He said: "This is an exciting new addition to Largs seafront, which we have been working on for a number of years.

"This is something myself and the other rotary members have wanted to see for a long time.

"It has been a matter of getting the correct funding in place, and thanks to North Ayrshire Council, we have been able to do that.

"It will be a great asset to the town and will offer some local knowledge to visitors.

"All of the information on the boards has been provided by the rotary. They will be nice points of interest for people to learn about different landmarks around the town.

"You see lots of other tourist towns that have these type of boards and they alwats seem to be quite popular.

"We have already had people interested in the ones installed, with people seemingly keen to stop and have a read."

The trail starts at Vanduarra, with information on its role in the D-Day landings.

This is followed by Vikingar Centre, the ferry terminal, Makdougall Brisbane Bridge and Broomfields, Elderisle and Curlinghall, ending at the Pencil monument.

Among the things people can enjoy are tributes to the Vikings, Sir Thomas Brisbane and those who took part in the war effort.

The boards were installed by sign designers and installers 6274 of Stewarton.

There are already three in place with the final three on the north side of the prom to be installed in the near future.
