The cottage is perfect for a larger family or a small group of friends looking for a delightful retreat with spectacular sea and mountain views.

Brodick also offers a range of activities including cycling, golf, mountain biking, archery and paragliding. Reached via a ferry from the historic harbour town of Ardrossan, the island makes a wonderful spot for a holiday for all the family.

Decorated in a light, neutral and soothing style throughout, this lovely, bright and welcoming property features spacious living areas, cosy bedrooms and a choice of bathrooms. Simply but charmingly furnished, the emphasis is on space, enabling eight guests to gather comfortably to enjoy a fantastic holiday in idyllic surroundings.

Stepping into this light, airy and welcoming holiday home, you will find the fresh and tastefully furnished lounge. This is a lovely space to relax in, with a TV, a choice of comfortable sofas and a large bay window with a beautiful view. Exploring further, the stylish open-plan kitchen/diner is an ideal space to prepare and share a favourite family meal. Along the hallway there are three charming and cosy bedrooms: two delightful double rooms and a twin room with additional bunk beds – this room sleeps four guests in total. You will also find an attractive bathroom complete with a shower over the bath.

This inviting and restful cottage is set within tranquil, mature and well-stocked gardens which feature a number of fruit trees. The gardens are enclosed and sheltered, with the front garden offering a fantastic view across the bay and towards the mainland. You can relax on the patio with a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. A large shed is available for storing bikes, golf clubs and other equipment.

Hillshore is a lovely, clean house but, as others have said, it would benefit from a little redecorating to warm it up and really increase its hospitable feel. Everything that should work does work, including a really good heating and hot water system (Ive stayed in places where this isnt the case!) Hillshore is really well located. The views of GoRead moreatfell are stunning. Lastly, Colin (house keeper) is extremely helpful and courteous. Hide

The cottage had a good location and great views. The house itself would benefit from some TLC. The garden was not a very inspiring place to sit with a broken wooden bench, lots of weeds and overhanging plants on the walk to the back door.

Would recommend the property and the Island, excellenRead moret location for walking holidays or for chilling, with a few nice little villages around, heritage museum is a must, castle is small but nice Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hillshore. The cottage was clean and very well equipped, with many original features maintaining some character. 3 of us managed ok with one bathroom but 8 would struggle. Easy to find and super location, with a brilliant co-op nearby. Fantastic views from the front and red squirrels in the garden. Lovely.

Great view and central position for Brodick We were a party of four adults and has masses of space. However , having only one toilet / shower may be an issue for larger parties. Beds and pillows were very comfortable .WiFi was also OK. On the whole we had a cracking holiday.

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.

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.
