Why stay here ...

Update for members - this CL is under new ownership as of June 2019.

South Whittlieburn Farm is perfectly situated in the picturesque Brisbane Glen 2.5 miles north east of Largs, a renowned seaside resort, which retains local character and charm whilst having a considerable range of amenities offering a perfect location for long and short stay holiday visitors.

Largs has many attractions, including the award winning Vikingar centre, which celebrates the town's historic Viking connections. There is also a swimming pool and fitness centre and the world famous Nardini's ice-cream parlour and cafe nearby.

Other local attractions include Largs Yacht Haven with Scott's Bar and Restaurant, and regular ferry connections from Largs Pier to Great Cumbrae and Weymss Bay to the Isle of Bute. Kelburn Castle and Estate (1.4 miles) has a wide range of activities including mountain biking, adventure courses and the Kelburn Glen waterfall and deep gorge walks.

Largs is also home of the Sport Scotland national Sports Centre at Inverclyde with facilities for all sports up to professional level and the sailing offshoot on the Isle of Cumbrae.

The town is well situated for easy access to Glasgow, about 31 miles, via the A737/M8 or using the regular train service from Largs Station.

The Ayrshire coastline is renowned for its range of outdoor activities including golf courses, which include Royal Troon, Prestwick, Turnberry and Largs. In addition to Largs Golf Club there is also a municipal course at Routenburn. There is a popular racecourse in Ayr, and for yachting enthusiasts, some of the best sailing in the West Coast of Scotland.

The site itself is on a small family run farm which offers a lovely vibrant feel. There is also a livery yard so horses graze happily in the neighbouring fields and in the spring there are young lambs and foals playing in this idyllic spot. We have recently introduced free range hens and so eggs may be available if you require!

There are beautiful walks nearby and the wildlife and flora are stunning. Every one remarks on the gorgeous setting and the warm welcome that you will receive.

We look forward to you enjoying our little haven!

Great get together with family

We had a family get together at the site, owner was friendly and very helpful, easy to book in. Pitches were well spaced with stunning views. Toilets and shower facilities were clean and owner is getting more toilet/shower blocks installed. The site is only 10-15 minutes from Largs so it's a great location for visiting the town. Phone signal is not the best which is great so no one is sitting staring at their phone all day. Will definitely be back.

Nice place with nice staff

This is a lovely CL, as part of a bigger camping operation, a few miles outside Largs. There is a lot going on nearby from other parts of the camping operation, through lots of horses and horse related activities and a few sheep too. Katie is lovely and the CL is well sized although the pitches are not completely level. There is no wifi, and we didn't use the facilities so I cannot comment on them. I think it is a bit expensive for what you get but not excessively so. So, if you want to visit this part of Ayrshire, this CL will do nicely.

Midges

There was an abundance of midges, so many that it was impossible to open eyes when outside, thus making pitching difficult. Pitch was on large black stones which cut through ground sheet when walked on. Gravel was covered in dog ends and the vans were packed in. Site was supposed to be 5 vans as it was a CL site, however there were a number of fields each with 5 vans in or motorhomes. This did not include the 3/4 fields with tents. Road between pitch and main farm was very busy with a number of fast cars especially at night. Do not go here. Too many pitches, over crowded, no tv, wifi or phone signal. Lots of noise, open bonfires and midges. no covid social distancing.

Will Be Back

Stayed here for 3 nights , Thursday 13th-Sunday 16th August. Busy but still quiet in our spot,another toilet block is in the pipeline in the next couple of weeks,good cycle up the Glen and the hills around would be well worth a walk,Largs is 50minutes walk and very easy (there is a bus n40 which would take you up to bus turning circle.The owner is friendly and helpful ,we would definitely recommend this site and will use it again when over the West

Gem of a site tucked in a quiet glen.

We were looking for picturesque site close to the coast and nice walking and South Whitleburn couldn't be more perfect. The owner Katie was really helpful and welcoming. It is peaceful but with interesting walks and plenty of nice horses in the surrounding fields, and some stunning west coast scenery , but is just 2 miles away from Largs with restaurants, bars, cafes and seaside town amenities. Largs also has a great skatepark. The site has easy to access hard standing pitches and some lovely grassy picnic and chill out areas to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. We have booked to go again already!
