Enjoying panoramic sea views and an idyllic raised position on the south-west coast of Arran, this traditional cottage makes the perfect bolthole for large families or groups.

This wonderful Arran lodge with panoramic sea views is just 1 mile from the popular village of Blackwaterfoot. It’s ideal for golfers, hikers, or those quite simply looking to explore the historic Isle of Arran. This charming property comfortably sleeps a group of ten, and its various lounge areas, spacious kitchen and downstairs bedroom ensure it ticks the boxes for guests both young and old.

This cottage is filled to the brim with character; from its exposed stone walls to original wooden beams, it’s a true reminder that you’re enjoying a countryside break. Scottish culture is represented in tartan soft furnishings and pictures of local landscapes which adorn the walls. Whilst the shared areas are thoughtfully decorated, the bedrooms have been kept wonderfully minimalist in order to allow you to settle in and make the place your own.

Downstairs you’ll find three spacious lounge areas in which to relax, perfect for adults and teenagers who want to do their own thing. The main living room benefits from a warming wood burner and generous basket of logs, as well as plenty of space to lounge on the sofa. Watch Sky TV in here, or head through to the sun room where French doors lead onto the garden, a perfect spot for enjoying a family board game. You’ll find two options for dining: the casual breakfast table in the kitchen or the more formal separate dining room. A sociable breakfast in the kitchen can be enjoyed alongside far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside. Finally, this floor benefits from a spacious double bedroom and bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The remaining bedrooms can be found upstairs, via the main staircase in the hallway. One of these bedrooms is a king-size master bedroom with a cot for your youngest guest, and another room on this floor is a spacious family room with two singles and one bunk bed, perfectly sleeping four older children. Kids will also love the snug, which has been thoughtfully tucked under the eaves of the home and is accessible via a unique spiral staircase. Here you’ll find a sofa and TV ideal for a film night.

Find no issue when it comes to parking your car, as the front of the property is a spacious gravelled area that can easily accommodate many vehicles. The house is surrounded by seemingly endless fields and lawn, so kids won’t be short of space to run around, however you’ll find an enclosed private garden to the rear for extra safety. Enjoy a summer BBQ in your back garden, dining at the outdoor table and sitting back on the sun loungers. Here you’ll also find an enclosed dog kennel for your four-legged guest.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Enjoy a 1-mile walk along the coast to the popular village of Blackwaterfoot. Here you'll find an immensely popular golf and tennis club, along with stables if you prefer to explore the area on horseback. The village boasts a local butcher and a bakery with daily fresh produce, as well as a hotel with an indoor swimming pool, bar and restaurant. Be sure to pack your bucket and spade as the village's beach is a vast expanse of golden sand.

As the Isle of Arran is a small island, none of its attractions can be found too far from your home. Head to the Machrie Moor Standing Stones within 4 miles, or perhaps the legendary King's Caves (5 miles). To the east of the island you'll find the grand Brodick Castle (12 miles) and its pretty gardens, alongside the Arran Heritage Museum (10.5 miles) in Brodick. The village of Brodick also boast a luxury spa, which might be a necessary stop after a hike up Goatfell, the island's tallest peak.

It's heresy to come to the Scottish isles and not visit a distillery, so be sure to enjoy some of country's finest liquid export whilst you're here. The Lagg Distillery is a mere 4 miles to the bottom of the island, whilst the Isle of Arran's own Distillery and Visitor Centre can be found 20 miles north of the property.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

We were eight golfing ladies who enjoyed a great holiday staying in Moinadh and were so fortunate weatherwise.The house suited us well apart from one small criticism.Only one proper shower. The upstairs bathroom could be improved by installing the same over the bath.

A wonderful place for our family to gather and spend some quality time on Arran. Even in the poor weather, the views from the conservatory were stunning. The cottage felt very homely and had everything we needed and more. The lounge and wood burning fire were awesome and the starter pack of logs was enormous. My son and I played nearby Shiskine golRead moref course which is possibly the most picturesque I've ever played. 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.
