This beach side Arran house invites you to break the rhythm of everyday life and live out childhood adventures, skimming stones, picnicking by the shore and walking the endless wilds

Looking out onto Lamlash Bay, this traditional Arran house sleeps nine people over five bedrooms and is perfectly located so that your stay is accompanied by the relaxing sound of waves breaking on the shore. The charming village of Lamlash has everything you might need on your stay, while also providing great access to a variety of exciting activities nearby. The Isle of Arran is a captivating place with miles of mountains, moorlands and coast to explore, so it is the ideal place for families who like to make the most out of the wild outdoors.

The owners have beautifully renovated their family home of three generations to make it a perfectly appointed property that is spacious and comfortable but keeps its country charm. This house features large windows that let the light stream in, comfortable furnishings and light pastel colours throughout that make the property feel fresh and bright. In addition, you’ll find some beautiful antique pieces, particularly in the bedrooms, that show an appreciation for the origins of this lovely home.

The sitting room – complete with an open fire, well-stocked bookshelves and comfy sofas – has lovely views of the shore so you can sit back and relax or socialise in this comfortable living room. Spacious and light, the well-equipped kitchen/diner has plenty of space to prepare delicious meals, with a Rayburn cooking range and an electric oven to accommodate modern living. Downstairs, you’ll also find a delightful twin bedroom and a convenient shower room.

Upstairs, there are four more bedrooms: one double, one single and two twins. The double bedroom is furnished with some beautiful dark wood pieces and shows great attention to detail, and even boasts a fireplace. Look out of your window to find stunning views of the bay and let in the fresh sea air to help you have a restful sleep. On the first floor, there are also two modern bathrooms which have been decorated with calm colours to create a refreshing space.

Large enclosed gardens are situated at the front and back of this property, as well a wooded area at the back. You can access the beach from your front gate so why not sit on your doorstep and look out for seals and diving gannets on the shore? Ample parking can be found to the side of the property. If you’re in need of essentials or fancy a meal out, then restaurants, village shops and the pier are all within walking distance.

While the Isle of Arran may be relatively small, it is certainly not lacking in things to do. Just a few hundred metres from your doorstep, Arran Outdoor Centre boasts a multitude of activities from sailing and abseiling, to hiking and mountain biking so those who are looking for an active adventure won't need to travel far. If you prefer to admire the gorgeous scenery from a safe distance then learn a new skill by booking a photography workshop at Arran in Focus where you can master the art of capturing the wild landscapes.

Just 6 miles away stands Brodick Castle, Garden and Country Park, which features formal gardens, vast woodlands, scenic waterfalls and panoramic views; visit this 19th- century baronial castle for a fun-filled day out with the family. Another historical site that can be found on the island is the Machrie Moor Standing Stones just 12 miles away. These archaeological remains of Neolithic stone circles are fascinating, dating back as far as 5000 years ago, and give an insight into the world of ancient Arran. Nearby, there are also plenty of lovely walks, both high and low-level routes, such as hiking to Goatfell: the highest point on the island.

Seabank is a stunning house set in a fabulous location with breathtaking views. The house is well equipped with lots of room for all 9 guests and dog! There was absolutely nothing missing that we needed throughout our stay and we will definitely be returning in the future. The manager Cathy was accommodating and reachable.

We are bookeRead mored again for next year, can't wait! Thank you Seabank for so many happy memories. Hide

Friends and family gathering which went very well. We all enjoyed the tranquillity of Lamlash, the views from Seabank and the comfortable furnishings of the house. The Pier Head Tavern provided good music Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon and we also enjoyed numerous meals there especially the Chowder and Scallops. We hope to return.

Have been here several times before. Absolutely beautiful and very comfortable house. Lovely place to spend a week. Beautiful views of the water and Holy Isle. Looks a little bit shabby in some of the rooms. Outside needs a lick of paint. But don't let that put you off. It's such a homely house. You'll love it.

A beautiful house in a stunning location. Three generations of our family (and two spaniels) had a wonderful stay at Seabank. The location is superb with walks directly from the door, and yet within easy walking distance of shops and pubs. We liked the Drift Inn and Lamlash Hotel for food and had a fun evening at the Pier Tavern quiz night on WedneRead moresdays. We particularly like Blackwaterfoot beach walk to Kings Cave, the Fairy Dell at Lochranza and enjoyed a long walk and climb through Glen Sannox and Glen Rosa. Would highly recommend this property and would love to return. Hide

This house was perfect for our family break. Beds Clean and comfortable. Kitchens well equipped and plenty of space. Sofas in lounge fine however small tables could do with being replaced. This did not stop us from enjoying the room with its coal burning fire, so cosy. Furniture around the house is old but this is part of the charm. It's a homely hRead moreouse. Do feel though that the windows need upgrade. Garden is fab and there's nothing can beat those views. Adults and kids all agreed it would be good to return. Location is great. Whilst peaceful, it's only 25mins along to the pubs and shops. Hide

This is the second time that we have stayed at Seabank. The house is truly a home from home. Some people have complained in the visitors book that the house is tired. We however really appreciate the work the owners have done to improve the. It's warm and cosy. The views from the front of the house are spectacular. We watched seals basking on the rRead moreocks and every morning watched a red squirrel in the garden. Highly recommend eating at The Drift Inn in Lamlash for superb food and excellent service. Hide

Lovely traditional family house, excellently equipped in a superb location. We have been coming here for 10 years plus and have never been disappointed. It is an old house and the occasional problem does arise, but the housekeeping service has always been excellent and problems are solved. Some outdoor chairs need mending.

A great cottage with real character and well equipped.Ideal for a large group and children. The garden is large and ideal for children to play in. Also, with very close and safe access to get to the beach/sea. We, as a family, will be returning to this cottage in the future.

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.
