Hillshore was really lovely. Big rooms, lots of space, everything we needed. I was delighted to see the dishwasher and bed linen and towels were provided as this wasn't listed on the website. Two minute walk to all the lovely shops and restaurants in Brodick. We had a lovely, chilled out break with friends over New Year, it was fantastic.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Arran is so peaceful and beautiful and Hillshore was homey, lovely, peaceful, and had a great view of the ocean! In terms of improvements there weren't many but I would say, the gate that says Hillshore' has been taken down so it was a bit difficult finding it with the directions given. Though Colin was very kind to Read morehelp me over the phone and we found it easily after that. Also the hand soap in the bathroom was very low when we arrived as well as the toilet paper supply. I think it would be even better if those were well stocked ahead! Also, check-out time was not printed anywhere on any of the materials so that would be good in future. But overall a lovely stay that we'll remember our whole lives. And Colin was so helpful, kind, friendly, and always a phone call away and very attentive. We're grateful to have met him. Thank you so much! Hide

Stayed at Hillshore early May. Great cottage - really well appointed, the bedrooms were immaculate. Great to have the garden with furniture to sit in the sunshine. Position is absolutely ideal - 5 mins walk from everything you need in Brodick.

Perfect location with the most spectacular views. Even provided binoculars! Bedrooms & living room were lovely & bright. Comfiest bed ever (memory foam mattress). Lots of games, books & films to choose from. Also lots of handy local info on places to eat & visit. Did have trouble finding the place (gate with cottage name hidden in the garden) & wouRead moreld recommend telling people where to find the key safe, found it eventually though! Kitchen was a great size & appreciated all the handy things provided, a real home from home. Did have a wee issue with ants next to the back door but used the sprays provided which dealt with it. Kitchen walls around the table could do with a lick of paint or a good scrub but only a minor thing. Will definitely be back & would highly recommend! Hide

Enjoyed our stay at Hillshore, a couple of minor items need attended to in cottage and garden, having just one bathroom didn't cause too many problems with it all being on the one floor. Very comfortable beds, had two different group of friends during my week to celebrate my 60th birthday and everyone enjoyed their stay, the room with twin beds andRead more bunk beds is an ideal family room. Brodick Bar and Brasserie two minute walk away excellent food, and small Co-op also nearby. A "welcome note" or similar would be helpful re bins, tea towels were in bedroom which we didn't find until end of week. Would certainly return to Hillshore 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.
