Property code: CA240

This wonderful Arran lodge with panoramic sea views is just 1 mile from the popular village of Blackwaterfoot. It’s ideal for golfers, hikers, or those quite simply looking to explore the historic Isle of Arran. This charming property comfortably sleeps a group of ten, and its various lounge areas, spacious kitchen and downstairs bedroom ensure it ticks the boxes for guests both young and old.

This cottage is filled to the brim with character; from its exposed stone walls to original wooden beams, it’s a true reminder that you’re enjoying a countryside break. Scottish culture is represented in tartan soft furnishings and pictures of local landscapes which adorn the walls. Whilst the shared areas are thoughtfully decorated, the bedrooms have been kept wonderfully minimalist in order to allow you to settle in and make the place your own.

Downstairs you’ll find three spacious lounge areas in which to relax, perfect for adults and teenagers who want to do their own thing. The main living room benefits from a warming wood burner and generous basket of logs, as well as plenty of space to lounge on the sofa. Watch Sky TV in here, or head through to the sun room where French doors lead onto the garden, a perfect spot for enjoying a family board game. You’ll find two options for dining: the casual breakfast table in the kitchen or the more formal separate dining room. A sociable breakfast in the kitchen can be enjoyed alongside far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside. Finally, this floor benefits from a spacious double bedroom and bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The remaining bedrooms can be found upstairs, via the main staircase in the hallway. One of these bedrooms is a king-size master bedroom with a cot for your youngest guest, and another room on this floor is a spacious family room with two singles and one bunk bed, perfectly sleeping four older children. Kids will also love the snug, which has been thoughtfully tucked under the eaves of the home and is accessible via a unique spiral staircase. Here you’ll find a sofa and TV ideal for a film night.

Find no issue when it comes to parking your car, as the front of the property is a spacious gravelled area that can easily accommodate many vehicles. The house is surrounded by seemingly endless fields and lawn, so kids won’t be short of space to run around, however you’ll find an enclosed private garden to the rear for extra safety. Enjoy a summer BBQ in your back garden, dining at the outdoor table and sitting back on the sun loungers. Here you’ll also find an enclosed dog kennel for your four-legged guest.

Enjoy a 1-mile walk along the coast to the popular village of Blackwaterfoot. Here you'll find an immensely popular golf and tennis club, along with stables if you prefer to explore the area on horseback. The village boasts a local butcher and a bakery with daily fresh produce, as well as a hotel with an indoor swimming pool, bar and restaurant. Be sure to pack your bucket and spade as the village's beach is a vast expanse of golden sand.

As the Isle of Arran is a small island, none of its attractions can be found too far from your home. Head to the Machrie Moor Standing Stones within 4 miles, or perhaps the legendary King's Caves (5 miles). To the east of the island you'll find the grand Brodick Castle (12 miles) and its pretty gardens, alongside the Arran Heritage Museum (10.5 miles) in Brodick. The village of Brodick also boast a luxury spa, which might be a necessary stop after a hike up Goatfell, the island's tallest peak.

It's heresy to come to the Scottish isles and not visit a distillery, so be sure to enjoy some of country's finest liquid export whilst you're here. The Lagg Distillery is a mere 4 miles to the bottom of the island, whilst the Isle of Arran's own Distillery and Visitor Centre can be found 20 miles north of the property.

We had a wonderful week at Moinadch. Our children enjoyed exploring Arran, wildlife watching and playing in the garden/house. The grownups appreciated the beautiful sunsets, BBQ and deck chairs on good days and the log burner on the wild ones! Very comfortable traditional house with lots of space for all and a good sized tiled utility area for bootRead mores/dog bed etc. Hide

The 5 stars say it all. Minor comments - I was confused by 3 different instructions concerning recycling, but tried to respond in a way that I hope would be clear. We found there was a crack in one of the teapots when we arrived and didn't use it, as we thought it might be the cause of the light stain on the worktop. The grounds are beautiful and lRead moreovely for the children - we understood there was a gate from the garden down to the beach. A guide to the alternative route nearby would be helpful Hide

Wonderful, cosy, well equipped and very familiar cottage on a stunning location. Many different and bright rooms with superb views all around. Especially the sunsets in the loggia facing the sea are unforgettable. We loved to stay there and hope to come again.
