  • "We stayed in this beautiful 1st floor apartment last month in the town of Largs."

    The apartment itself was extremely clean, with all the comforts of home and you could tell that the owners had put a lot of thought into what their visitors may need, even leaving tickets for the ferry over to the Isle of Cumbrae, which was a super trip and much appreciated by us. The apartment is only a 2 minute walk onto the front and near by shops. Great holiday with lots to do in Largs and the surrounding area. We will defiantly return in the future.

    The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped. We enjoyed watching the birds (including a pheasant) and squirrel at the bird feeder from the lounge window. We had a lovely trip to Great Cumbrae on the free tickets provided. We decided to go on foot and use the bus on Cumbrae even though tickets were included for the car too. In Largs we would recommend Scotts restaurant and Oscars at Brisbane House, fish and chips at The Fishworks and of course, an ice cream sundae at Nardinis. Within easy distance from the apartment there are some great walks including up Castle Hill. For those with children, Kelburn Country Park is worth a visit. Animals, waterfalls, enchanted forest, café.

    We were a little concerned as family of four that storage etc might be a problem but the hallway and cupboards were more than ample, and the massive built in wardrobes were excellent (our son enjoyed hiding in them they were so big!) Although there is no outside space it is a stones throw from the prom and the sea so it really didn't matter and great local facilities including supermarket within walking distance. The complimentary trip to the Isle of Cumbrae is a must and such a lovely welcome by the owners - we would highly recommend this property!

Buses and trains are frequent as are the ferry's that take you to Isle of Cumbrae, Isle of Bute, Dunoon and Arran. Glasgow is a short drive away. What more could you ask for in a break away.

  • "Flat was lovely and its location would be hard to beat."

    Single beds were a bit narrow, but apart from that everything was superb ! Largs is a beautiful seaside resort on the Firth of Clyde and perfect for island hopping on the scheduled ferries (from Largs, Ardrossan and Wemyss Bay) including the SS Waverly which calls at Largs in the summer season on its way to the Isle of Bute, the Cowl Peninsula, the Mull of Kintyre and Arran. Largs is technically in the Highlands because mountains can be found on both sides of the Firth of Clyde. The Brisbane Glen road to Greenock is well worth a visit. There are outstanding views of the Firth of Clyde from the communication towers above Loch Thom in the Muirsheil Hills. The best restaurant in Largs is in the Haylie Hotel (two minutes drive south on the road to Fairlie). The dining room and lounge have fabulous views over the Firth of Clyde and the Arran Mountains. The food is superb !

  • "This was a beautiful apartment, very well presented, clean and spacious."

    It has everything you could want and need when staying away from home. We stayed with two young children and would recommend it for young families. There’s just no bath so we had to sit our baby in the bottom of the shower ( she loved it so that is not a complaint) so would say bring something to bath a baby in. A high chair and cot were provided, also little thinks like rolls and milk which was a life saver after a long journey. It’s in a fantastic location, a stones throw away from the sea front. Has a great local park and green space to play with a ball. Local trips to Kelburn Castle great for children and over to Millport on the ferry ( tickets included because we stayed for 7 days) to the beach and bike riding. Would Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

About the location


Glasgow 33 miles; Ayr 33 miles.

Located on the Firth of Clyde, the town of Largs is a traditional Scottish seaside resort, with a Victorian promenade situated just over 30 miles from Glasgow. Largs offers a variety of shops, including some chain and some independent stores, plus there are several pubs and restaurants. Visit Vikingar, a family Viking experience or enjoy the amusement arcades on the promenade whilst indulging in an ice-cream. Photographers amongst you can capture the wonderful views across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Cumbrae located just a mile offshore, or perhaps take the short ferry trip across to explore this most accessible Scottish island. In summer months you can enjoy a cruise on the Waverley Paddle Steamer. The Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park offers walking and cycling for everyone, as well as a range of wildlife to spot. Visit Kelburn Castle with its 13th century castle adorned with graffiti from a group of Brazilian artists, or meander around the scenic grounds. A day trip to Glasgow is also worth a visit just being over thirty miles away with its vast array of shops and cultural experiences. With sailing and golf on the doorstep too, Largs really does have something for everyone.
