Just returned after our 3rd stay at Kirkside Cottage. The cottage has everything we needed very well equipped and very cosy we loved the open fire. We returned home feeling very relaxed and can’t wait to return in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Upper Largo is a stones throw from Largo Bay and the beach at Lower Largo and there are a number of walks that take you down from the village to the beach. For those wanting more of a walking challenge the volcanic plug of Largo Law rises up steeply behind the village and is an excellent challenge for those wanting to test themselves (please check the noticeboard at the foot of the Law for dog access as it varies by season).

The village of Upper Largo has an excellent pub/restaurant which is a very short walk from Kirkside Cottage, the Crusoe Hotel and the Railway Inn are a longer walk or a short drive away in Lower Largo. The Railway is a great traditional dog friendly pub fantastic for a drink after a long walk, however it does not serve food, the Crusoe Bar and the Upper Largo Bar se...
