About Wemyss Bay
Wemyss Bay is pronounced `weems bay'. The town and local area became more popular in the late 19th century following the construction of the railway line to Glasgow and the regular ferry service to the Isle of Bute. The railway station building is regarded as one of the finest in Scotland.
The town itself has a selection of local shops and eateries. If travelling by car note that car parking can be scarce especially in the summer and it may be better to leave your car outside the town and to walk.
