South Whittlieburn Farm: Nice, isn't it

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.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Please note that the shower facilities are unisex.

    South Whitliieburn Farm has a lovely situation. Great views, but close enough to the town centre. Sue is friendly and efficient, and the site is well maintained. She realised we would appreciate a quiet position, and directed us to a smaller field with shady trees, a relief in a very hot week. It was slightly sloping but not a problem for us. The facilities were kept clean, and the showers were good. As a working farm, with horses and livestock, there were a couple of friendly sheep and miniature goats wandering around, which the children loved.

    Disliked: 

    goats sheep dogs and cats roaming freely across the site at all timesYongchd driving quad around the camp site . Could have done with a wheelbarrow or trolley to help move things in and off site as cars not allowed on pitches at all

From the manager...

Thank you for the review and your comments.

We are a family run working farm with campsite and one of our charms is the fact of our animals being on site.

We would happily have supplied a wheelbarrow to help you move your things to your pitch if you had asked or indeed the child on the quad bike would have moved them for you.

I wish you well you in your future travels.

Kind regards

Katie and team

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)
