Largs Avenue begins at the Avenue gate and heads North towards the shoreline. Just before it reaches here it twists towards the east and through a wooded area and over the stone bridge. It eventually terminates at the A78 main road.

In the mid 1970s most of the avenue was discontinued getting used as when the Power station road was realigned it cut right through the avenue. Only half the road was in use now and access was through a gate onto the power station road.

In the 1970s when the oil rig road was built it cut through what remained of the avenue and left only officially 30 meters long and all access was using the oil rig road instead. The original avenue still exists but is pretty much overgrown. The pilars now at the Avenue Gate used to be located at the A78 entrance.
