Argyll

Crarae Gardens, Inverary Castle, Inverary Jail and Loch Fyne Oyster Bar would make for a great day out, either by ferry across to Dunoon, possibly taking in the Younger Botanical Gardens or driving by Loch Lomond.

Arran

Brodick Castle, the Distillery at Loch Ranza and stocking up on presents at Arran Aromatics are all worth a visit. Closer to Largs, is the Isle of Cumbrae which has the smallest Cathedral in the country and the Garrison, recently refurbished most beautifully, houses the local museum.

Glasgow

Museums, shops, concert halls, piping centre, restaurants and venues and is only an hour away by train. Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument are a little further away, but you could take in the Falkirk Wheel en route!

Largs

Yacht Haven, Sailing Club, Kelburn Country Centre, North Ayrshire Leisure and St Columba’s Heritage Centre, which opened in 2009 and tells the story of Sir Thomas MacDougall Brisbane who left his home, Brisbane House, to go to Australia, became Governor of New South Wales in 1821 and gave his name to the city of Brisbane. The centre also tells the story of other famous people from Largs – Sam Torrance, Gallacher and Lyle and Daniella Nardini to name a few.

 
 
What our guests say

After a tumultuous few months working in the NHS and our long planned for holiday cancelled, we found Willow cottage online and contacted Jane, the owner. The cottage is in a lovely setting with a gorgeous garden to enjoy the sun when it shines! Willow cottage is in a great location for exploring lots of nearby sights. The owners, Jane and Chris have thought of everything in terms of making this a home from home and the cleanliness and condition of the cottage were excellent. There were some lovely touches like flowers, milk and homemade shortbread when we arrived. Chris and Jane responded readily to any issues we had and went over and above to resolve them. The weather wasn’t always kind to us but they were! I would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Just wonderful

Had another lovely week at Noddsdale. A unique house in glorious grounds which are beautifully maintained. An easy walk into Largs and spectacular views. The kitchen is better stocked than mine. Xx

Wonderful to be back!

Willow Cottage and surrounding area was a welcome break away from home, especially after lockdown began to be lifted. Jane and Chris are excellent hosts and catered for all our needs. The home is set up so as to not want form anything away from home, the house and setting had everything we needed, except good weather which is never a guarantee. A nice touch too was the home-baking on arrival, Jane even catered for the nut allergy in the family. They could not be any more attentive. The house is set in lovely greenery and was great to have the Tennis Court and walks on tap in the surrounding area, with amazing views towards Cumbrae and Bute. A short walk or drive into Largs is so easy too. And its wonderful to come back to the house after a day exploring to the peace and quiet. As a family of 5 adults, we had a terrific time. Thank you.
