Saltcoats sandy beach is popular along with local walks and cycle-paths.
Saltcoats name is derived from the town’s earliest industry when salt was harvested from the sea water. The harbour built in 1680 ensured the town developed as a port trading in salt, fish and coal. The North Ayrshire Museum displays relics of the towns nautical past and on the archaeology, costume, transport, culture and country life with a reconstructed traditional Ayrshire cottage interior. After the turn of the twentieth century and the decline of salt panning in the town, Saltcoats became increasingly popular as a holiday destination.
