I enjoyed my journey from Larne to Troon and return journey. I have only one small complaint. My ticket was for a long stay and I had plenty of luggage and I found at larne I could use a trolley to move my luggage around easily but when I got to Troon no trolleys are available. On the return journey I had even more luggage but had to get friends to help me in the Troon Terminal. It would be of great benefit to passengers if Trolleys could be provided at this end. When I arrived on my return journey to Larne Staff did help me with my two trolleys which I really appreciated. If trolleys could be provided it would help the passenger get luggage to car on arrival and departure. A part from that service was excellent and I hope to use your services soon. Thank you George Brown

The name of the town is believed to have derived from the Irish Prince, Lathar who owned the lands around Larne in ancient times. The area became known as Lathar-na, and was finally shortened to Larne. Both fossils and prehistoric human artefacts have been found in the sea cliffs. Larne was one of the earliest Viking settlements in Ireland, who also called it "Ulfreksfjord" (the name of the present-day townland, "Olderfleet", is derived from this Viking name), and Viking burial sites have been discovered in the area. Norse pirates used Larne Lough as a base in the tenth and eleventh centuries; Edward Bruce, brother of Robert, landed here in 1315 with a force of six thousand men to urge the Irish to overthrow the English; and in 1914, the Ulster Volunteers, opposed to the Irish Home Rule Bill, landed German arms here.
Today, Larne is a busy market town.
The name of Troon is synonymous with golf. The town is home to the Royal Troon Golf Club, which is home to two of the six golf courses which together entirely surround Troon. The others are the Kilmarnock Club plus three municipal courses, including two of championship standard. The actual name "Troon" has nothing to do with Scotland's national game. Instead it comes from "Trwyn", Celtic for headland or point. Which is a fair name for the rocky nose on which much of the earlier part of the town is built, projecting from the broad sandy bays to the north and south. Troon harbour played a notable part in the development of the town for many years. It was home to the Ailsa Shipbuilding Company, which constructed many vessels for worldwide customers but mainly small passenger and various merchant vessels. The fishing fleet from Ayr moved to Troon harbour and a revitalisation of the abandoned section of the harbour started.
