Portencross Castle

portencross castle near largsPortencross ( Port na Coise) is a hamlet near Farland Head in North Ayrshire, Scotland. Situated about 2 miles west of Seamill and approximately 6 miles south of Largs.  Portencross is noted for its castle, harbours and pier.

The "Old Harbour" is actually a small tidal inlet next to the castle, and is part of the castle property. The larger harbour, "North Harbour", owned by the Portencross Harbour Trust, lies about 100 metres north of the castle and was the main access point for fishing activity. The Portencross Pier was built in the era of Clyde steamer cruising but was never used as much as other locations such as Largs, Fairlie or Wemyss Bay.
