  • "We stayed with aunts and cousins for a family get together, the house is lovely."

    Great property fab location only downside is there was no shower downstairs. Some members couldn’t access the stairs due to poor mobility. It would be beneficial to have hanging facilities in the twin bedroom and carpets rather than the tiles, also needs small table lamp in this room. The other rooms were lovely and luxurious. We had a fantastic time in your lovely home.

  • "We loved our stay at The Old Rectory."

    It was a beautiful property and you could feel the love and happiness as you walked through the door. The sock box was the cutest, and so kind of the owners to leave us some starter bits of food. It was so lovely and relaxing to sit by the fire and listen to the waves. Thank you so much for a lovely and memorable family holiday :) Xx

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.
