Although only a mere 217m in height, Knock Hill sits in a commanding position above the seaside town of Largs, overlooking the Islands of Cumbrae and Bute in the Firth of Clyde.

It is conveniently located between two alternative routes taken by the Ayrshire Coastal Path, which when combined form a perfect 8.5 mile circular walk for a shorter autumn day. The short detour to reach the top of the hill will be well worth it if visibility is good.
