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.

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.

The house is located in a fantastic location and although the interior and furnishings are dated this didn't detract from the enjoyment of our holiday. The house was clean and cosy. We saw red squirrels and seals at play just looking out the windows.

We had a lovely week, location of Seabank is perfect. We did enjoy watching the wildlife from the garden. The kitchen was the hub of activities. The accommodation was perfectly adequate apart from the ground floor twin bedroom. The downstairs bedroom was really quite unpleasant to sleep in due to the dampness.

Comfortable and homely house. We were all very happy and were able to relax without worrying about doing any damage . The open fire was lovely, plenty of radiators even though they werent needed. Garden was great for the dogs and lots of garden chairs. Wonderful position, with great views over the bay.

Seabank is a gloriously situated comfortable family house. There is loads of space both indoors and out for family fun and enormous meals. It's not at all contemporary and the better for it. We loved the Raeburn and got quite proficient at using it. Will definitely return.

I cannot rave enough about this house. The location is perfect for relaxing and watching the seals and the birdlife on the seashore. Lamlash is nearby for restaurants. There was everything you needed in this house. The ground floor bedroom and bathroom is perfect for the less mobile visitors. This is the house you need to stay in for a large familyRead more of all ages. Loads of off road parking out of the way. No cars to spoil your view. Cathy the housekeeper is a star, nothing too much trouble. Hide

Loved the house. Amazing views and location. A little drafty even in August but doesnt take away from the charm of the place. When we arrived it was a lovely evening and it would have been nice to sit out at the front and admire the view on a nice patio set.

Please see above, bathrooms need updating. The downstairs bedroom and shower room would not be acceptable to anyone I know. This is the first property we have ever rented and been so disappointed with that although the location is superb I would not return. The depleted log store did not help in trying to heat the very draughty and cold property. IRead moret felt like it had been vacant for an extended period. Cathy is a marvel. 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.
