Sleeps 4 + 2

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 refurbished and set over one level with very comfortable accommodation for up to 4/6 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

    Carraig Dhubh Cottage reviews
    This is a pleasant cottage, simply but comfortably furnished, with plenty of space for three people. We enjoyed the location, and the wonderful sea view from the living-room window. It is also a practical cottage for dog-owners, and our dog enjoyed the big garden as well as the many nearby walks, including the walk from Whiting Bay to Glenashdale waterfall and a beautiful coastal walk from Kildonan. Arran is full of variety, but small enough to get around easily; we were exceptionally lucky with the weather - it was even warm enough to swim from the pebbly beach across the road from the cottage. Many thanks to the owners and family for their welcome and an excellent holiday.
    Mr Wilyman - June 2016
    We enjoyed our stay at Carraig Dhubh Cottage and will certainly recommend it to our friends. Rooms very clean and tidy; no need to wash dishes or cutlery as we have had to do in other holiday accommodation. Apart from wonderful view, we enjoyed feeding and watching the birds.
