Wonderful detached villa nestled in the heart of the stunning village of Whiting Bay. Enjoy the magnificent sea views from the balcony and enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring open fire.

This chalet-style home could be your shoreside hideaway on this delightful and mysterious island, which sits in the Firth of Clyde off the west coast of Scotland. Warm and welcoming, the cottage is the perfect home-from-home for a family or group of adventuring friends looking to make their own way in the Isle of Arran.

The detached villa is a sweet balance of traditional and modern, with dark wood detailing and a charming balcony on the top level. Inside, the rooms are spacious, clean and bright, decorated lovingly with natural colours and materials, and nautical touches.

On the ground floor, you’ll find one social hub of the house, the kitchen and dining area. It has every modern convenience you could want for preparing family feasts, and a generous-sized table and neighbouring sofa area, so you can gather together to get excited about the next day’s activities. Also on this level are your first two bedrooms, a cosy double and a tranquil twin.

Up on the first floor, making the most of the natural light from the Firth is your sitting room, a lovely space with an open fire, comfy sofas and a balcony overlooking the patio, garden, and the Firth of Clyde. The third bedroom is a peaceful twin room, perfect for younger guests who want their own hideaway while they’re here.

Outside the property, the delights continue, with a decked patio and enclosed landscaped garden. Take a meal or a nightcap outdoors on your patio furniture — the fresh air with inspire for tomorrow’s adventures.

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

The property sits in a quiet cul-de-sac within the stunning village of Whiting Bay. Just a mile from your door, there are ample conveniences and sights to experience that will make you feel right at home, including restaurants and cafes, shops for groceries, and even a golf course and putting green for those who can’t resist a bit of competitive spirit.

Head to the art gallery to sample some local talent, or just skip down to the beach — Whiting Bay is a beautiful stretch of coast, curling around the landform of Arran with the peaks of the Holy Isle in the distance. It’s the perfect place to explore, witness astonishing local wildlife, hike and cycle.

Plus, there’s more mysterious Scottish history here than you can imagine. Stroll down the coast for a mile to discover the site of Giants’ Graves, a collection of chambered tombs on the hillside with an eerie but peaceful atmosphere.

Further afield on this mystical island, you’ll find Brodick Castle, a gorgeous 19th-century building with surrounding gardens and parkland. A 10.5-mile drive along this dramatic coast, or 20 miles on the other side of the island sits Machrie Moor, a collection of Neolithic stones that defy belief.

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.
