Fabulous mid-terrace stone cottage just half a mile from Lamlash Bay, with front garden views to Holy Isle. It is surrounded by sublime natural beauty, mystical history and fantastic local food.

This pretty mid-terrace stone cottage in the village of Lamlash is a short stroll from the beach less than 0.5 miles away and has fantastic views out over to the Holy Isle from its sunny front garden. The house sleeps three to four, making it ideal for small families who want to enjoy a relaxing beach break or explore Arran and its beautiful coastline and mountains. Lamlash is Arran’s largest village, and a fantastic base on the island. It has a great choice of pubs and restaurants and some independent food and gift shops.

The property is built over two floors. On the semi-open-plan ground floor, there is a cosy living area to the front of the property, with comfortable sofas arranged around a wood burner, which keeps the room warm even on the chilliest of nights. Towards the back is the kitchen/diner. This has a range of contemporary kitchen units and everything you’ll need to whip up hearty breakfasts before you head out to the hills, or warming dinners when you come in from a day on the beach. There is a dining table with space for four to eat in comfort. The family bathroom, which has a shower over the bath, leads from the dining space.

On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, one a single and one a twin. Both have lovely views over either countryside or coast. An extra bed can be arranged if needed.

Outside, there is a mature private garden to the front of the property, with garden furniture and sea views.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

In Lamlash, you can easily arrange trips out to sea, including sea kayaking, ferry trips to the Holy Isle and wildlife boat tours around the island's coast. The village attracts adventure-seekers from across Arran. To the north of the village is Lamlash Golf Course, 1.5 miles from the property. There, you can enjoy rounds of golf with spectacular views over the water.

Just 4.5 miles to the north is the village of Brodick. As well as a great choice of pubs and shops, including a supermarket, Brodick has two sandy, family-friendly beaches. Both are wild and dune-backed, with great views over to the mountains. The harbour is a fantastic place to spend a few hours, with fishing boats and plenty of atmosphere.

A little further north, 6.5 miles from the cottage, is Brodick Castle. This National Trust property is a renowned baronial castle set in large grounds. Take a walk along the many woodland trails and look out for waterfalls and red squirrels. From the castle, you can climb up to Goatfell, the island's highest point. It is a surprisingly easy climb with a choice of routes, rewarded by outstanding views.

For those who'd rather stay closer to the sea, the Arran Coastal Way offers some great walking along the island's shore.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

Lovely cottage with beautiful seaside themed decor and all you would want to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Dog friendly too, and enclosed front garden was ideal for eating outside at breakfast and in the evening, and parking whilst on the road was fine and road was not busy at all. Lamlash itself is lovely and great place to stay.

The cottage was fine except for the fact that the only toilet was downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs. It was difficult to navigate the steep and winding staircase through the night without putting the light on and disturbing wife/husband. It was also next to the busy road with lots of traffic which was surprising considering the size of the villaRead morege. Parking was at a premium as well. However, the biggest downside was no cellphone service so thank goodness for the internet. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
