Ardrossan has two World War Memorials. The large sanstone WW1 memorial on South Beach Promenade and a smaller WW2 memorial in a small Garden of Remembrance on Glasgow Street. You pass this memorial on your left as you go through the long road (Glasgow Street) that leads to the Arran Ferry terminal.
