With fantastic views of the hills, this delightful log cabin is ideally located for exploring the west coast of Arran and beyond, whether that''s by car, bicycle or on foot.

This spacious lodge, located close to Blackwaterfoot on the western side of Arran, offers fabulous mountain views and is an ideal base from which to enjoy the nearby golden sandy beach and to explore the rest of the island. Part of a small complex of other lodges, this property is ideal for a family, with plenty of space for young children to play outside and all the home comforts you could need on holiday. The timbered interior of this lodge creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere reminiscent of a Scandinavian chalet. The bright and cheerful, open-plan living area is ideal for a family, and the three bedrooms are simple yet cosy, ensuring a good night’s sleep for all.

Stepping up onto the deck that surrounds the lodge, you enter into the brightly-lit living area, with a couple of comfy sofas, invitingly arranged in one corner, a practical and superbly well-equipped galley kitchen in another, and a dining table placed in another, with dual-aspect windows providing plenty of natural light at mealtimes. From the living area, walk through to one of the three bedrooms – one king-size and two twins, one of which has an additional rollout bed that can be adapted into a twin. Decorated in soothing blues and greens, all the bedrooms offer a restful feel to ensure a good night’s sleep. The king-size bedroom has a handy en-suite shower room and there is also a separate family bathroom with a shower over bath.

Outside, a decked balcony surrounds the lodge and is the perfect spot to sit with a cup of tea in the morning and take in the views while the children rush around on the shared grassed areas. In the evening, pour yourself a chilled drink and sit and watch the sun go down. There is plenty of parking space next to the lodge so no need to carry luggage too far.

With a fabulous beach on your doorstep as well as a local butchers and bakers in Blackwatersfoot, the property is well-situated for both holiday activities and local supplies. Known as “Scotland in Miniature”, Arran offers everything from glorious beaches to mountains and rivers. For those seeking outdoor activities beyond paddling and swimming, head to Lamlash (13.5 miles) where you will find Arran Outdoor. This outdoor activity centre offers families the chance to try their hand at anything from kayaking to gorge walking.

The island's charming capital, Brodick (12.5 miles) is home to the excellent Brodick Castle and grounds, part of National Trust for Scotland.

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.
