Bright and modern barn conversion on the Isle of Arran, just along the coast from the bustling harbourside village of Blackwaterfoot.

Converted from the original byre in 2015, this stylish and welcoming home is in the perfect location for a peaceful family break. Found in the sleepy hamlet of Corriecravie, you can step out of the front door and explore with plenty of walks, hikes, attractions and pristine beaches close by. Despite its secluded setting, you can find groceries, restaurants and a pub in nearby Blackwaterfoot (4 miles), providing everything you could need for a comfortable and enjoyable escape.

Reverse-level living allows this two-storey home to make the most of its incredible location, with breathtaking views across the Firth of Clyde towards the Kintyre Peninsula. With soft muted tones and a minimalist style, the property has a homely and welcoming aesthetic that exudes light and space.

Enter through the porch and find yourself in an airy hallway, with a staircase inviting you to the focal point of the home. But first head up the three steps into the simple and modern master bedroom, off which you will find an en-suite shower room. Two further comfortable bedrooms can be found on the ground floor - one double and one twin - as well as a bathroom with shower over the bath.

But it’s the open-plan kitchen/diner/lounge that is the focal point of this property, providing a wonderfully social space in which to relax and enjoy each other’s company. The room stretches the width of the house, with large windows letting the light flood in and providing those enviable views from almost every angle. Curl up in front of the TV after an exhausting day exploring, cook up a feast in the fully-equipped kitchen, and dine at the table as you savour the view.

Step outside and take a seat at the patio table, breathing in the fresh island air. It’s a great spot for an al fresco dinner or for enjoying your breakfast as you plan the day’s adventures. Parking is available at the property.

With forest trails, towering hills and an abundance of wildlife, fans of the great outdoors will be in their element on the Isle of Arran. Explore the historic castles at Brodick (14.5 miles) and Lochranza (22 miles) and visit the ancient Machrie Moor Standing Stones (8.5 miles) which date back to 3,500 BC.

Climb Goat Fell (17.5 miles), the highest point on the isle and a dominant part of its skyline. It's the perfect spot for keen walkers, who are rewarded with spectacular panoramic views from the top. The superb King's Cave coastal walk (7.5 miles) is a must-do too, where you will visit a series of caves studded in the sandstone cliffs surrounding Blackwaterfoot.

For even more outdoor adventure, head to Arran Outdoor Centre in Lamlash (12.5 miles) for sailing, abseiling, gorge walking, and more.

Get closer to wildlife with all of Scotland's Big Five found on the island; golden eagle, red deer, red squirrel, otter and harbour seal. Join one of the islands many safaris and see how many you can spot.

Of course, no visit to Scotland is complete without heading to the local distilleries and breweries; visit the Isle of Arran Distillery in Lochranza (22.5 miles) and the Isle of Arran Brewery in Brodick (12.5 miles).

Well equipped, well maintained, spotlessly clean, very comfortable, super location. Super base to return to when the rain swept in - as it did on occasions! Great food at Kinloch Hotel and The Lighthouse at Pirnmill. What else could we ask for?

Daavar barn is an amazing property which is setup to take in the amazing, surrounding views. The property is finished to a very high spec and has everything you need within for a comfortable stay. Close to Blackwaterfoot which has an amazing beach and amenities and quick access to the string road to get across the island.

We have had another wonderful holiday on Arran, returning for the second year to Davaar Barn. A week of glorious weather which was ideal for the beach & some superb walking. We introduced friends to Arran this year & they are now converted to holidays in Scotland in particular Arran. Very relaxing !

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.
