A lovely clean house with plenty of space for six plus dog. Great location, two minutes from the ferry, easy to find, and close to shops. Well stocked kitchen with large cooker.

Finisla is the perfect place to stay in Brodick. Location is fab and it is right at the beach, shops, restaurants and a two minute drive from the Ferry. The house itself is perfect, plenty of space and we had everything we needed. The kitchen was particularly well equipped. Our dog loved the wee enclosed garden and appreciated the balls that he fouRead morend there! We were quite surprised at how expensive it is to eat out in Arran though. But there are two co-op shops in easy walking distance. Wooley's is great with their huge variety of delicious bakery goods. Loved the crazy golf. Everything really near. My favourite thing to do was to walk along the Fisherman's Walk, along by the beach and the golf course. Eventually brings you out at the Arran Brewery, craft shops and the Wineport Bistro is a great place to eat. I would definitely recommend staying at Finisla and if we come back to Arran (which I hope we will) I would try to get this place again. Hide

Spent a week in Arran at beiginning of May and stayed in Brodick at Finisla cottage. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. Ideally situated for Arran Active, Little Rock cafe (serves the best latte in Ayrshire), the beach and local shops. Janie's tearoom next to Arran Aromatics and the cheese shop well worth a visit for lunch. Cafe RoRead moresaburn at the Heritage museum is not far from Finisla either and serves lovely food. All in all Finisla suited our family needs well. 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.
