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.

From the manager...

Many thanks for the review and I am glad you found our facilities clean.

I a sorry you were unable to park next to your tent but we have had so much rain recently that it makes too much mess of the camping pitches. Its also much safer for the camping area to be car free as we have a lot of children coming on to the site.

I look forward to welcoming you in the future and will try to get you in an area closer to your tent.

Kind regards

    Lovely friendly people running this site which is located in the hills behind Largs. We were in the field with tiered pitches and they helped us getting our van in place, which was really welcome as we are new to caravanning. Facilities were excellent and new. Only a short drive from Largs which is beautiful. Site was really peaceful and scenery lovely.

Dependent on pitch given could give cause for concern for vehicle16/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomSusan D.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Location good

    Disliked: 

    Pitch given I felt was not really suitable for motorhome due to close proximity of other vehicles, no social distancing and width of actual pitch. The pitch was on a steep incline with gravel surface which gave no grip for wheels. Due to position of other motorhome and working van's by entrance made it very difficult to manoeuvre.

From the manager...

Again how can I go from solid great reviews to this??

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)
