No official opening date has been revealed, with the new planning proposal still yet to be given the go ahead.

Original plans put forward last year were rejected, with a new application now put forward

Not only is there lots to do on-site, but it is near the coastal town of Ardrossan.

Many head to the town for its sandy beaches – North Bay and South Bay with views over the Firth of Clyde.

With just 11,000 residents, most people head to the 12th-century Ardrossan Castle, or the Ardrossan Harbour which has a direct train line.

If you fancy staying nearby there are hotels from £70 a night including The Lauriston Hotel and the South beach Apartments.

Ardrossan is around 30 miles from Glasgow, around an hour's drive.

Tourists can get the ferry to the Isle of Arran, which has been compared to Cornwall in the 1970s.

Rare red deer and dolphins can be spotted on the island too.

Sun Travel writer John Sturgis said: "There are only three roads on the island — one that goes right around it and two that bisect it.

"And in the course of our week there I encountered golden eagles, porpoises, hares, red squirrels, red deer, seals, snakes and more."
