Charming, characterful terrace cottage located in the seaside village of Lamlash just metres from the beach, perfect for families seeking a peaceful coastal retreat.

Situated in a colourful row of green and white terraced cottages is this lovely little retreat, full of character and charm. Sitting in the heart of the pretty seaside village of Lamlash, the property has uninterrupted sea views across the bay to Holy Isle and beyond. Steeped in history, this homely traditional cottage is a former 19th-century estate worker’s home and located just a short walk from the centre of the village.

This welcoming and cosy cottage enjoys one of the most beautiful settings on the island of Arran and has glorious views to go with it. Traditionally and sympathetically furnished throughout to respect its history, this cottage is a lovely retreat for couples and families alike who wish to experience the tranquillity of Arran life.

The cottage is arranged over two floors and has a comfortable and relaxed feel throughout. The cosy sitting room has a fabulous large bay window that opens out so guests can enjoy the beautiful views across the bay. The open-plan kitchen/dining room maintains the cottage style and through a sliding door, leads to the ground-floor double bedroom. Also on this floor is the family bathroom with shower over the bath and a utility room. As we go up the steep cottage-style stairs, we have the other two double bedrooms that are cosy and bright.

This cottage’s location means that you can step out of your front door, where Arran becomes your garden. With so much space in front of the cottage from the village green to the shoreline of the bay, you can sit with a picnic and enjoy many an evening here watching the world and marine life go by.

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

Lamlash is considered the largest village on the Isle of Arran, protected by its bay and overlooking Holy Isle and the Firth of Clyde. Said to be the true capital of the island it is also known as the prettiest village on Arran with a relaxed promenade, pier, attractive cottages and pretty buildings. Home to the island's only high school, a golf club, the hospital, a yacht club and government offices, the village also provides a good selection of places to stay, eat and drink. It has a vibrant, friendly atmosphere and all visitors will feel very welcome here.

Brodick (3 miles) is another of Arran's main villages and has a backdrop dominated by the dramatic looking peak of Goatfell. Brodick offers a variety of activities during your visit such as horse riding, walking, cycling, fishing, kayaking and more. It is also home to Brodick Castle and the Isle of Arran Heritage Museum which are steeped in history and culture, making a very interesting visit.

Further south lies the village of Whiting Bay (4 miles) whose name is thought to derive from ‘Viking Bay'. It is classed as the third largest village on Arran and was once home to the largest pier in Scotland. Overlooking the sea this picturesque seaside village is well-known for its woodland walks through Glenashdale Falls where you will find one of the most stunning waterfalls on the island. With a great selection of shops, hotels and eateries you will be spoilt for choice as to where to visit next.

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.
