A red sandstone village on the Ayrshire coast, Skelmorlie lies on the Firth of Clyde, nearly 5 miles (8 km) northwest of Largs. It developed as a residential resort after the building of a hydropathic hotel in 1868. Skelmorlie Castle, which dates from the early 16th century, was a stronghold of the Montgomery family.
