Elegantly set back from the beach in beautiful sweeping gardens on the outskirts of Whiting Bay, Carraig Dhubh Cottage benefits from stunning views out to the sea and Holy Isle.
Recently renovated and set over one level with very comfortable accommodation for up to 5 people, this cottage is wonderfully light and airy and the sitting room enjoys extensive views out to sea and the beachfront along Whiting Bay. There is a well equipped kitchen or guests may choose to dine outside, where they also have the option of using the barbecue whilst enjoying some of the spectacular sunsets in the garden. For those wishing to sample some of the local produce, there are a number of excellent cafes, restaurants and shops within walking distance, or slightly further afield in the nearby villages of Lamlash, Kildonan and Brodick.
This cottage would be perfect for families and friends alike and is ideally suited to take advantage of all that Arran has to offer. With 7 golf courses to choose from and numerous outdoor activities including walking, cycling, kayaking and horse riding, outdoor enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice. For those who are less active, there are many other options including galleries, speciality shops and Brodick Castle and gardens.
Whiting Bay itself is a thriving village with a long sandy and pebble beach stretching over a mile along the village front, complete with rock pools for exploring and ideal for children. There is also an 18 hole golf course in the village and the playing fields are just 5 minutes from the cottage. The impressive Glenashdale Falls is worth the walk, as well as the ancient Giant’s Graves.
The village of Kildonan on the southern point is also just a very short drive from the cottage. Here visitors can explore the long stretches of sandy beaches whilst watching seals and otters, and also have the option to dine or have a drink at the restaurant on the shorefront.
Can be taken with AR396 and AR397

Holiday Protection Scheme
Holiday Protection Scheme
Cottages & Castles Ltd. (acting as agents for property owners) provides a guarantee for tenants who have to cancel their holiday at a cottage.
If it is necessary to cancel your holiday, for any of the reasons A 1-5 below, you may do so at any time up until the close of business on the last working day before your tenancy commences and we will refund your balance. Your deposit is not refundable. If you have made a late booking and paid in full you will receive your payment minus the normal deposit sum (usually 30%).
There is no charge for this holiday protection – it is included in the cost of your holiday. Please note that the protection does not apply to holidays in our properties with codes beginning with P (usually castles, mansions and lodges).
Deposits may be transferred to a different date for a holiday at the same property within 12 months of the original holiday date, subject to availability, but not, however, for a different property. If the new booking is at a higher rate the tenant must pay the extra cost. No refund will be made if the new date is at a lower rate.
