Sat in a fantastic location just metres from the beach in the centre of popular Whiting Bay providing a perfect retreat for both couples or families alike.

Just a short walk from the shore, this Arran bungalow is perfectly located for family getaways beside the sea. Set within Whiting Bay, it is ideally placed to enjoy everything this area has to offer, from its rock pools to its sandy beaches, countryside walks, golf course, shops and restaurants. After a busy day spent exploring the island, return to this beautifully presented property for a cosy night in front of the TV or an al fresco meal on the patio.

Inside, this single-storey property is light and airy, decorated in calming neutral tones with coordinating woodwork throughout.

Rustle up delicious family meals in the traditional kitchen, which offers plenty of storage and surface space for making yourselves at home and opens onto the garden. Once prepared, enjoy meals together at the table in the open-plan lounge/diner before firing up the wood burner-effect gas fire and settling in for a cosy night in front of the Freeview TV. In the afternoons, step down through French doors into the sunny conservatory, a delightful space in which to relax with a good book whatever the weather. Rest weary heads in the inviting timber bedrooms, which share a stylish contemporary bathroom.

Step outside from the conservatory to the pleasant front garden, which is furnished with a table and chairs for enjoying a cup of tea or al fresco meal as the sun goes down. To the rear there is an enclosed garden, the perfect place for children and dogs to play safely in the sunshine.

Located on Golf Course Road, the property is within easy reach of all of Whiting Bay’s amenities. Home to cafes, a gallery, beachside hotel and restaurant, and village stores, Whiting Bay is a fantastic destination for families. With a beach that runs from Sandbraes to the village at low tide, hours of fun can be spent exploring the rock pools and gentle surf at Whiting Bay. Take a boat trip to Holy Isle from Lamlash (5 miles), set just off Arran’s east coast and home to an ancient spiritual heritage that stretches back to the 6th century. Continue back in time with a trip to Giants’ Graves (0.5 miles), a peaceful site of two historic chambered tombs with the added bonus of panoramic coastal views.

Visit Arran's main village of Brodick (8.5 miles) to browse its shops and eateries and explore its historic castle and beautiful gardens. From here, keen walkers should take on the mighty Goatfell, the highest of Arran's mountains and the culminating point of some dramatic granite ridges. Or, for less strenuous terrain follow the Arran Coastal Way, which runs for 68 miles and promises breathtaking views at every step. For an adrenaline rush, head to Arran Outdoor Centre (6 miles) to try gorge walking, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking and more.

Grenrof is a spacious and well-equipped cottage with the most amazing views of Whiting Bay from the lounge and garden. We had a wonderful few days exploring the island from this lovely base and would definitely come back.

Just like previous stay last year the grass was very long and untidy on arrival and the paths and patio areas badly in need of weeding I would have thought good management would organise grass cutting on a Friday the day before turnover

Our family had a fabulous time at Grenrof. The location was perfect and the house had everything that we needed. We were able to cook the same as would at home as the kitchen was fully equipped. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning customers. Thank you for sharing you lovely home with us.
