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

We recently spent 10 days at the Bell Loft & would happily have stayed longer. The accommodation is very clean & well presented. Tastefully decorated & furnished, with comfy beds, lovely bedlinen & quality duvets, towels, crockery etc. The kitchen is fab & has everything you could possibly need including a Nespresso! Tea, coffee & other basics like salt, olive oil, as well as a vase of flowers & home made biscuits to greet us. Everything worked, we felt comfortable, relaxed & safe, it's a perfect retreat, whilst only 5 minutes by car or taxi into Largs. We had great weather & loved walking from the door, up through the grounds to enjoy the wonderful views & tranquil setting. Jane & her family made us feel very welcome & we hope to return.

A Perfect Place to Stay

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!

Lovely flat in beautiful grounds looking down to the sea and Scottish islands. The flat has everything you could need and Jane, the host, made us very welcome. We had a lovely time. This is a great base for visiting Great Cumbrae, the Isle of Bute and the South West of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
