Set within Whiting Bay, it is ideally placed to enjoy everything this area has to offer, from its rock pools to its sandy beaches, countryside walks, golf course, shops and restaurants. After a busy day spent exploring the island, return to this beautifully presented property for a cosy night in front of the TV or an al fresco meal on the patio.

Inside, this single-storey property is light and airy, decorated in calming neutral tones with coordinating woodwork throughout.

Rustle up delicious family meals in the traditional kitchen, which offers plenty of storage and surface space for making yourselves at home and opens onto the garden. Once prepared, enjoy meals together at the table in the open-plan lounge/diner before firing up the wood burner-effect gas fire and settling in for a cosy night in front of the Freeview TV. In the afternoons, step down through French doors into the sunny conservatory, a delightful space in which to relax with a good book whatever the weather. Rest weary heads in the inviting timber bedrooms, which share a stylish contemporary bathroom.

Located on Golf Course Road, the property is within easy reach of all of Whiting Bay’s amenities. Home to cafes, a gallery, beachside hotel and restaurant, and village stores, Whiting Bay is a fantastic destination for families. With a beach that runs from Sandbraes to the village at low tide, hours of fun can be spent exploring the rock pools and gentle surf at Whiting Bay. Take a boat trip to Holy Isle from Lamlash (5 miles), set just off Arran’s east coast and home to an ancient spiritual heritage that stretches back to the 6th century. Continue back in time with a trip to Giants’ Graves (0.5 miles), a peaceful site of two historic chambered tombs with the added bonus of panoramic coastal views.

Visit Arran's main village of Brodick (8.5 miles) to browse its shops and eateries and explore its historic castle and beautiful gardens. From here, keen walkers should take on the mighty Goatfell, the highest of Arran's mountains and the culminating point of some dramatic granite ridges. Or, for less strenuous terrain follow the Arran Coastal Way, which runs for 68 miles and promises breathtaking views at every step. For an adrenaline rush, head to Arran Outdoor Centre (6 miles) to try gorge walking, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking and more.

Lovely bungalow. Not quite as spacious outside as pictures indicate but you can see the sea! Lovely area with pub and coffee shop incredibly close!

After months of wondering if I would get to my beautiful island I was delighted that the house was ready and welcoming. This is such a cosy and yet spacious house catering for all ages. The beach was wonderful and only a 2 minute stroll from the house. Already booked for next year, well done!

Grenrof is in a great location and has a lot of living space for the money paid. It could however make more of the outdoor space and the conservatory. Overall a nice property that could be a 5 star property with a little more maintenance.

Everything about this cottage was very good, the only downside was the unclean oven. I don't really want to clean up after other people on my holiday! The cottage is spacious, the conservatory a great sun trap.

Reviewed by Mr Simpson April 2019

We love Arran and we have stayed at Grenrof on several occasions. On arrival the bungalow was a lot cleaner than last time and the garden looked a lot neater too. kitchen was very well equipped, living room was very cosy and conservatory was lovely to seat in for my morning cup of tea. Beds were comfortable and clean. The only down side was a blockRead moreage in the bathroom that made the water drain very slowly in the sink, bath and the toilet would get blocked. Someone did come out to have a look put couldn't fix the problem and would have to come back, so I'm assuming it was fixed after we left to go home. Having said this I would definitely stay again and it was just one of those things that happen in anyone's home. I would definitely recommend this holiday let to other people as it's a lovely place to have a nice family break and is situated in a lovely location. Hope to be back there soon. 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.
