We used for a night when passing through from the ferry of Bute.

Site is easy to find, just a couple of miles up a single track road from Largs.

We stayed on the CL, just over lane from the farmhouse and main campsite. Good sized pitches, all with ehu. A fresh water tap and grey drain and bins.

The shower and loo are in an outbuilding attached to the farm. Both do look incredibly old - but they are clean. Electric shower was super hot and powerful, shower curtain had seen better days.

The lady owner was friendly and helpful - no problem that we changed our booking by 4 days with a few hours notice.

Would use again if in the area.

A great small friendly site well placed to explore the area. A selection of places to set up and didn't feel crowded. Katie, Neil and family are very welcoming would recommend a visit.

We have just spent three lovely nights here, what a lovely lady and a lovely warm welcome we received.

The facilities were very good, the walking down to the Glen for our dog was excellent, as it is a working farm our dog was on her lead at all times. Plenty of safe space for children to play.

The Viking festival was in Largs.

A site we will definitely be returning to.

Not overly impressed to be honest; the site is easy enough to find and the road up the glen is wide enough. The CL area is all a kind of tarmac, like a car park and distinctly unlevel. The entrance is on a slope and rather narrow, ok with care but could be improved.

Our dog wouldn't walk down to the burn so can't comment on that; we did find a walk a couple of miles further up the glen which was ok.

Largs itself is rather uninspiring, has a Morrisons for supplies.

We drove up the coast looking for walks and inspiration and found neither, just a narrow area of rocks and then the angry sea.

The facilities are across the road, we didn't use them so can't comment. We were charged 17 per night, a rip off, but there are not many sites in the area.

Arrived on a busy weekend, it was very wet so we couldn't pitch on the grass. I had called ahead to ask for a pitch. We were shown to a level area in the car park at the back but told there was no hook up. There appeared to be hook up in the upper hard standing area but it wasn't offered. We were still charged full price, which I didn't mind too much but I paid for 3 nights ahead. The lady was very pleasant but seemed a little flustered. After a couple of hours sitting in our van in torrential rain we decided to go into Largs, where we found somewhere better to pitch up. The facilities at this site are very dated - one toilet and shower inside a building and a decidedly ropey looking portacabin, which we didn't venture in so can't say what it was like. It just reminded me a bit of what campsites used to be like in the 70's/80's. Everything worked but was just a tad rough around the edges.

We tried to book two nights at the CL but were told it was full but we were offered a hardstanding in an adjacent field which we accepted. The site was easy enough to find and we were surprised to see four areas, one of which was the CL, with caravans/motorhomes some of which looked as if they were long stays. We were directed to the field beside the CL and opposite the farmhouse. The entrance was a bit steep but we got in OK. The 'hardstanding' turned out to be a large car park at the bottom of a field which not only sloped N/S but E/W so we could not get level and did not want to use the planks of wood, complete with nails, which were available and would be OK for caravans. There was one motorhome and one caravan that appeared to be occupied and two other caravans and a boat that appeared to have been there for some time. There were several EHUs and water taps. We could not get a TV signal although next to the CL which is stated to have good TV reception! We were adjacent to the road with a bit of traffic noise There was a toilet and shower across the road adjacent to the farmhouse which we did not use as it did not look inviting. I did use the chemical disposal which was the worst and dirtiest I have ever used.

We were tired and decided to stay the night, which was not a very pleasant experience, and left a day early. We paid 16. 00 for the one night.

Very easy to find and easy access to Largs. Warm welcome on arrival. Toilet area adequate, cannot comment on the shower as we always use the caravan shower.

Access into site could be smoother so just take your time, road is quiet so it's not a problem

It's all hard standing, which is not our preference as would always opt for grass pitch. I do understand though it's probably better for motorhomes. However I do think it would benefit from a tarmac path at some point leading to the water and recycling

Good value for money and very peaceful site despite being near a road( which is not busy)

Would recommend pitch 4.

Series of sloping fields in a very peaceful setting with pleasant views close to the Ayrshire coast. Largs and Wemyys Bay are recommended especially the Italian Ice cream parlour in the former.

Owner was welcoming and helpful. Stayed in wet weather and field quickly got quite muddy. Toilet showers and washing up in portacabin affair which was in poor condition

Reviewer: Mark-maxine 1 review from this member

This is a message for Tom and Mary. We came to stay at your site in August for a weekend break with our children. We would just like to say that the campsite was fantastic with stunning views. The campsite was sufficiently adequate with the toilet and shower facilities a lot more than you would have if you were out camping in the fields. It was an absolute blessing to be allowed a campfire as along as it was safe as this kept the midges away at night. We will definagtely be returning again and would recommend to other poeple for the sites and hospitality of Tom and Mary. On leaving we were given a card from Tom which detailed activities available and would recommend phoning before a visit to check information about these.
