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.

Please note

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

    Very friendly owner Katie. Liked the campsite very much, spacious, nice views, not far from Largs town, walked in 45 mins. Walks around area too. Lots Horses which I loved, x2 young highland cows. Plenty to watch while sitting at night. Facilities very good and showers best I’ve had on a campsite. If you like the outdoors this is a great base to PitchUp. Definitely will be returning.

    Fantastic is the only way to describe this site. My second visit and again Katie was always available to help with any questions I may have.
    Flat camping area and very clean but dated toilet/shower block, new ones being installed this season.
    EHU and fresh water next to the camping area.
    Please remember that this is a working farm so look where you are walking. And also say hi to the very friendly black farm dog who came to visit me both on my last visit and on this one. I highly recommend this site. Lastly I will mention the WiFi, it is quite weak but great to be free of social media and let you enjoy your holidays.

What a great review and so happy that you enjoyed your second stay at South Whittlieburn Farm.

Can't wait to have the new shower and toilet units set up which should be over the next couple of weeks.

I hope you are able to visit us again.

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)
