The Brisbane House Hotel is a contemporary 3 star hotel located in the traditional seaside town of Largs, just a short drive from Glasgow. The hotel is the perfect choice for those looking for a coastal escape, away from the bustle of city life. This modern hotel features 24 en suite rooms, most of which have spectacular views of the Clyde coastline. Other rooms have a limited view of the rural countryside of Largs.

The observatory was constructed by Brisbane while he was in England. He was a member of the Royal Society of Scotland and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, where he was a president and a fellow. After establishing his observatory, Brisbane returned to his native land and founded the Australian Society of Astronomy. His observatory was completed in 1858, and he founded the Queensland Gold Medal in honor of his achievement.

During his lifetime, Brisbane was an ardent astronomer. He financed the construction of an observatory at his ancestral home, and his efforts shaped the development of navigation in Australia. He discovered seven thousand new stars, earning him the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. In 1827, he published the first catalogue of stars in the southern hemisphere, and his work is still widely regarded as one of the best-known.
