This charming period cottage with a roaring wood burner is perfect for a family getaway. Nestled in a peaceful location, it is the ideal base for a holiday on the magical Isle of Arran.

Nestled on the south-eastern coast of the Isle of Arran, this charming country cottage is ideal for families looking to explore all that Arran has to offer. It’s located 1.5 miles from the tranquil village of Lamlash, Arran’s largest settlement, but still small in comparison to mainland towns and villages. Here, you can make the most of the village’s range of eateries and facilities, and enjoy walking and cycling routes which afford stunning views of Holy Island.

High ceilings and neutral tones create the sense of space in this country cottage, while traditional décor makes it feel homely and welcoming. On entering, discard muddy boots and wet coats in the porch before you head into the kitchen/diner. Here, you’ll find everything you need to cook up a hearty breakfast or a warming evening meal with enough room around the table for everyone. When it’s time to snuggle up for the evening, head into the lounge to sink into the sofas in front of the roaring wood burner. Completing the ground floor is a modern shower room.

Upstairs amongst the eaves, there are two light and airy bedrooms, one double and one twin. Both clean and fresh so you can get a good night’s sleep.

Outside, a delightful enclosed garden offers somewhere for the kids to let off steam and stretch their legs. Meanwhile, the adults can sit back and enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of fizz while soaking up the sounds of the countryside. The gravel driveway provides parking for two cars.

If you’re looking for an action-packed holiday, the Isle of Arran is the perfect location for you. Known as ‘miniature Scotland’, its rich and varied landscape includes forests, beaches and mountains to keep you busy, with stunning panoramic views in almost every direction. Goatfell (10 miles) is its largest mountain and there are some spectacular views on the ascent and at the summit. Glen Rosa (7 miles) is also beautiful, but remember to pack your swimming costumes so that you can visit the ‘blue pool’ for a quick dip. You should also take your binoculars wherever you go as the island is home to plenty of wildlife such as red squirrels, golden eagles and sea otters.

Arran is well-known for its local produce from cheese to oatcakes to ice cream, so be sure to sample some of these delights. In the north of the island in Lochranza, you’ll find Arran Distillery with its visitor centre and shop where you can enjoy a wee dram of the local tipple. For something more sedate and historical, Brodick Castle and Gardens (7 miles) is a lovely day out, and is only a few miles from the ferry port in Brodick itself (4.5 miles).

Lamlash has its own golf club (1.5 miles) for those looking to tee off in a beautiful setting. There is also a keen sailing fraternity here, so find your inner sea dog and take to the water. Boat trips go from the pier to Holy Island, where Tibetan monks run a retreat.

Lovely, well equipped cottage with a nice garden at the front and sun trap at the back. It was fine for 2 people. The bottle of prosecco on arrival was a nice touch, plus beach towels in the property which we did use on one day. It was clean and well maintained. The only slight downside is it was quite a walk into Lamlash, up to 20 mins to the far Read moreend of the village, maybe 10 mins to the start of the village. Hide

For us, this was a well kept cottage good location, close to the facilities in Lamlash. The cottage was as described on the website, with a downstairs toilet and shower room (the shower was excellent!), a roomy kitchen and ample parking. Shame there's no sea view from the cottage other than from the front lawn but it had a cosy back yard that was aRead more sun trap in the evening. 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.

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.
