  My two memories of Saltcoats are of the enormous number of jellyfish that were on the beach when we were there, and my brother taking seriously ill with asthma and us having to come back home. I think we had extended family through marriage living there.

Can't believ that there is no thread aboot saltcoats.

I can't have been the only Glasweian who went for oor holidays there?

I remember the sand dunes, and going to the local cinema on a wet saturday afternoon to see
the film ring of bright water, walking to Ardrossan, and the beach was amazing. so golden.
There was a boating pond, and you sat in the little shelters to eat
you sand filled pieces. The railway track ran right by the sea, and had TWO bridges.
Saltcoats was amazing for your holidays.

Salcoats amazing??? Golden sands??? Whit is it that you are oan Jimmy n' where can I get a case o' it.

Im pretty sure Billy Connolly sang a song about saltcoats.
it went something like.
Saltcoats by the sea, i hate the smell of your rotting seaweed,
never again will i see you, oh saltcoats goodby. biggrin.gif

He certainly did and it wis a brilliant song. Done to the tune of farewell to Capri. And ended "drunk an' lying in the gutter... Doon at Salcoates fur ra' fer"

  BTW There's one called 'Saltcoats and Troon'

Hope I didn't offend you, by offering some advice.

You can always tell me where to put it lol

  Hi Purple.
Just a wee tip
There already exist Topics, forums, and threads for a couple of new ones youve started. All you need do is search, instead of open an additional one. It also means you revive and old one, which can often be a good thing.

  My first ever family holiday was in Ardrossan ( I was there when I got a first birthday card from my Grandparents.......... and I still have the card biggrin.gif ) but we also often went to Saltcoats for holiday's. I recently did a bit of research on the location of a family photo that was taken about 60 years ago. It transpired it was taken at the HMS Dasher memorial which looks almost exactly the same today as it did then...........except it's in colour now laugh.gif
