    How about a visit to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Forest at Kelburn Castle just outside Largs?  The event will be running throughout April and is included in the admission price and sounds like great fun! :)  

    If your kids are in to history, a trip to Vikingar might be a good option.  At the attraction you can find out about the history of Vikings in Scotland and they also have a smiming pool and cafe.

    Another great day out is a trip to Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae which lies just off the coast of Largs.   Have a look at this post about the Isle of Cumbrae...there's lots of great ideas about things to do on the island! :)

    Hello @joe_sevans :) I'd definitely recommend a wee trip to the Isle of Cumbrae as @VisitScotlandAngela suggested. It's really cheap to hire bikes for a morning, afternoon or all day! Any traffic that is on the island are used to cyclists on the road. Hire bikes in Millport town then cycle anti-clockwise. About three-quarters of the way round the island you can stop off at Fintry Bay for refreshments. Look out for Lion Rock, Crocodile Rock and the Indian Man Rock! If you like geocaching there are many hiding on Cumbrae as well. Or you can walk around the island (10 miles), to the top of the island or just enjoy the island's beaches for a relaxing day if the weather is nice. I wrote a wee blog post about my visits here over the years: More information here too: I hope you have fun at Largs! :)

    Thanks so much for your reccomendations. We will certainly do the bike hire. While the Viking Museum looks great, not sure my huffy teens will last long in there! Thanks again. Jo.
