South Whittlieburn Farm: Looking up to the farm

General

  • Scenic family-run smallholding site 10 minutes' drive from Largs
  • Within 20 minutes' drive of ferries to Great Cumbrae and Bute
  • Collect and buy fresh eggs from the flock of free-range hens on site

Some will be making a swift stopover on a Scotland tour, others looking to settle in for a lengthier Largs-based break; South Whittlieburn Farm’s owner Katie is happy to welcome all sorts of guests at her family-run Ayrshire smallholding.

Bag a spot here in the stunning Brisbane Glen to share the place with the horses and ponies that graze the surrounding fields, and a flock of free-range hens that generously provide fresh eggs for guests to collect and purchase for a farm breakfast. If your own animal pal fancies coming along for the ride, dogs are welcome here – the little farm track that runs by Noddsdale Water lends itself well to paw-stretching outings.

Noted those stunning views from the site? (If not, skip off to flick through pics at this point…) They give you a bit of a clue that this is a most scenic area, whether facing inland towards the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park or out to sea and the Firth of Clyde.

Getting down to the seaside is fairly straightforward, as the popular resort of Largs is a 10-minute drive away – home to lots of shops and places to eat as well as a viking centre, boat trips and a splendid seaview golf course.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Host friendly and welcoming, toilet/kitchen areas clean and tidy. Family feel with lots of tents/vans in relaxed atmosphere. Campers are respectful of quiet after 10pm. Farm setting with horses, sheep and hosts own furry friends to chat to as well. Camping areas are clean and well kept with groundsman looking after this.

    Disliked: 

    If parking near roadside it can be a wee bit noisy due to agricultural vehicles. If setting up on the hard standing, get strong pegs for awning as ground tough.

    Everything! The campsite was in a picturesque rural location yet only 10 mins from local amenities and the beautiful Ayrshire coastline and all it has to offer. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owner and staff who were willing to help in any way . They even found me an electric point on the farmyard to charge my car overnight. My grandchildren loved the whole experience, especially all the farm animals. The local river just 5 minutes walk away proved to be a real highlight as it was a great place to cool off from the summer heatwave and safe enough to paddle and mess about in. We discovered some beautiful sandy beaches only 8 miles away and had a wonderful trip on the Ferry to Millport. Will definitely return next year!

From the manager...

It was an absolute pleasure to have you and your lovely family stay with us and I am so pleased you all had a wonderful time.

It's so great to see children having fun after all these worrying times.

I really look forward to seeing you all again next year!

Kindest regards

Katie

Local attractions

Got the urge to flex your golfing arms? As well as the course in Largs, there are several other courses along this stretch of coastline – Royal Troon, Prestwick and Gailes Links courses are all within an hour’s drive. If you’re more into watching sports than thwacking golf balls, aim for Ayr’s racecourse (an hour’s drive away).

Sticking a little closer to home, plan a bit of time in Largs – wandering along the promenade, getting into the viking spirit at the Vikingar Centre or having a bit of splash time in the swimming pool. Just outside town (15 minutes’ drive from the site) is Kelburn Castle, a mural-adorned ancient pile whose estate has a waterfall to hike to, a sculpture trail to stroll along and (shhh…) a secret forest to seek out.

Looking longingly beyond Largs? Board a ferry from the harbour to the island of Great Cumbrae for bike rides and watersports, or head to Wemyss Bay (20 minutes) for the boat to Bute. Either way, keep eyes out for seals and seabirds lounging along the shoreline.

Must see

  • Paisley Abbey (16.4 miles)
  • Scottish Maritime Museum (16.8 miles)
  • Clydebuilt (Scottish Maritime Museum Braehead) (18.7 miles)
