On the East side of the Firth of Clyde between Greenock and Largs, Kip is Scotland’s longest established Marina and is a convenient departure point for all the favourite anchorages on the Clyde, the Kyles of Bute, Arran and Loch Fyne, and for trips to Northern Ireland.
The road to Kip from Glasgow follows the M8 passing by Glasgow City airport and then along the south bank of the Clyde overlooking the ancient extinct volcano of Dumbarton Rock and offering some of the most beautiful views over Helensburgh, Gare Loch and Loch Long and the mountains of Beinn Mohr behind, and passing though Port Glasgow and Greenock of historic shipbuilding fame.
The road from the south and Prestwick airport passes through the Ayrshire farming countryside before joining the east bank of the Clyde near Fairlie. The road then follows the Clyde all the way to Kip offering beautiful scenery overlooking The Cumbrae Islands and across the Firth to the island of Bute, Rothesay and Dunoon, and passing through Largs and Skelmorlie.
