Generous semi-detached family property on the glorious Isle of Arran, just set back from the pebbled shores of Whiting Bay beach. Perfectly located to discover the wonders of the surrounding island.

Set back from the picturesque shore of Whiting Bay, this beautifully renovated family home commands breathtaking views over the sea. Four spacious bedrooms make this a comfortable and enviable spot for up to seven guests, so it's an ideal spot for family get-togethers, while its beachfront location is sure to delight groups of boating enthusiasts and keen kayakers.

The two-storey home has a homely aesthetic, welcoming you from the moment you step through the door. Soft neutral tones and large windows help fill each room with light and space. From three of the bedrooms, you will wake up to the wonderful sea views, creating a sense of calm from dawn to dusk.

Relax in the large lounge, where there is plenty of room for the whole party to unwind and plan the next day’s itinerary before settling down in front of a film on the TV. For additional space, retire to the sunroom overlooking the mature gardens - a great spot to retreat with your favourite book. Dine together in the fully equipped kitchen/diner before retiring to bed; the single bedroom can be found on the ground floor, as well as a shower room and separate WC.

Head up the carpeted stairs to the three further bedrooms - one super king-size, one double and one twin - all designed and decorated with comfort in mind to ensure a restful night’s sleep. The house also has a bathroom with a shower over the bath on the first floor.

Breathe in the fresh sea air from the private, enclosed garden, where you’ll find a picnic bench for al fresco dining or sipping your morning coffee. It’s also a great spot to savour any rare Scottish sun! Parking is available for two cars on the driveway, with further on-street parking available.

 

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Venture 0.5 miles into the heart of Whiting Bay and enjoy fresh bread and coffee for breakfast, as well as delicious local scran for lunch and dinner at one of the restaurants, cafes or delicatessen. Here you'll also discover a range of shops and an excellent art gallery displaying some of the best local work alongside many of Scotland's well-known artists.

 

From the house, enjoy easy access to the island's variety of cycle routes and walks, with a footpath for all abilities; explore the Giants' Graves (0.5 miles) and visit Eas a' Chrannaig (1.5 miles) – also known as the Glenashdale Falls. You can even pony trek through scenic countryside year-round at North Sannox Burn (17.5 miles), while those who wish to challenge themselves on foot should head further up the glen to be rewarded with panoramic views into Coire nan Ceum.

 

Wander the beautiful formal gardens at the iconic National Trust's Brodick Castle, Gardens and Country Park (11 miles) – Britain's only island country park. Discover woodland trails, ponds, waterfalls and bathing pools, including the ‘blue pool' of Glen Rosa.

 

Thrill-seekers should head to Kildonan (3.5 miles) for an unforgettable paragliding experience. You can also enjoy boating, kayaking and sea fishing close to the property, while Whiting Bay's golf course is 1 mile away.

Wonderfully comfortable cottage in a beautiful location. Had many happy days at Kildonan beach in the sun! Great (long) hike up Goat Fell. Excellent waterfall walk right from the door of the cottage. Also enjoyed kayaking with Otter's Tail.

As regular visitors to Arran we thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday at Grahamfield last week. The house is well located, well equipped, exceptionally clean on arrival and very comfortable - I would highly recommend for a family holiday. Wifi coverage was not great and so streaming, picking up emails, etc without 4G on your mobile is a challenge.

Grahamfield is ideally located on the seafront in Whiting Bay. Walk across the road and you are on the beach - rocky at first but sandy when the tide goes out.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
