Largs is a bustling town at the north end of the Ayrshire coast and is accessible by train and bus, although, as Noddsdale is slightly out of the town, a car is the most practical form of transport!
From the North: follow M8/A8/A78 through Greenock to Largs. Approximately half a mile inside the 30mph limit (there is a 40mph limit first) turn left into Douglas Street at the signs for Brisbane Glen Road and the National Sports Centre and follow the directions from Douglas Street below.
From the South: follow the A78 to Largs and proceed to the North end of the Esplanade. Turn right into Douglas Street at the signs for Brisbane Glen Road and the National Sports Centre and follow the directions from Douglas Street below.
From the East: take the A737 to Irvine at Glasgow Airport, then after nine miles turn right on to the A760 passing Lochwinnoch, through Kilbirnie and on to Largs. Turn right at the lights at the bottom of the hill and follow the main road to the north end of the Esplanade. Turn right up Douglas Street at the signs for Brisbane Glen Road and the National Sports Centre and follow the directions from Douglas Street below.
From Douglas Street: follow the road into Brisbane Glen, past Kilburn Water (a cul-de-sac) on the left and the cemetery on the right. Once past the restriction signs take the third entrance on the right marked Noddsdale House and Lodge Only. Drive up the hedge lined avenue – Noddsdale House is at the top. Come to the front foor, ring the bell and one of us will meet you and show you to either the Bell Loft or the East Wing. If you reach Middleton Farm, you have gone too far!
There is a regular train service from Glasgow Central and although there is a change at Kilwinning, trains run from Ayr, stopping at Prestwick Airport on a regular basis.
Buses run from Glasgow and Ayr and stop in the town centre. See the Citylink bus timetables. The local bus does not come as far as Noddsdale.
There are plenty of taxis in the town – so for a night out they are ideal. We can also give details of a taxi company that does airport runs, should that be necessary, although we do recommend a car for practical purposes!
