Stay in the bustling coastal village of Brodick and discover the best of the Isle of Arran's attractions. Cosy and compact cottage perfectly set out to host two guests for a week or long weekend.

A beautifully renovated, adults-only romantic cottage for two in the village of Brodick on the Isle of Arran. The cottage has outstanding views out to the sea and the hills and is perfectly placed for exploring Arran’s wild coastline and its rugged mountainous interior. The cottage is set back from the road in beautiful mature gardens, making it a real escape from the world with plenty of privacy and space just to kick back and enjoy the views. It will suit those looking to simply relax as much as those looking for an active break, with excellent hill-walking, golfing and cycling on hand. The centre of Brodick is less than 1 mile away. There, you’ll find a choice of pubs, shops and restaurants, and a harbour with ferries to Ardrossan.

The cottage is all one level. The entrance is at the back, through patio doors that lead into the open-plan living space. This cosy, well-equipped room has been perfectly constructed to make the most of the space and has everything two people will need for an easy, relaxing break. There is a comfortable sofa, coffee table and TV with streaming services for evenings at home. The kitchen area is equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a hearty breakfast or romantic dinner, eaten at the dining table for two. There is a twin bedroom with lovely sea views and an en-suite shower room.

Outside, the property has a private patio garden with furniture. It’s the ideal spot for outdoor breakfasts, evening drinks and afternoons enjoying the sun. There is ample parking.


Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

With the village of Brodick so close, there is plenty to do and see within walking distance. Brodick Beach is wild and sandy, with wonderful views over to the snow-capped mountain peaks beyond. The quieter beach of Strabane, or Duke's Beach, is just the other side of the Rosa Burn. There are also numerous shorefront walks from the village and the harbour area is a wonderful place to spend a few hours exploring the excellent local pubs, cafes and shops.

Brodick Castle, a National Trust property surrounded by a country park, is 1.5 miles from the property. It is a grand baronial castle set in grounds with woodland trails where you can spot red squirrels and waterfalls and ponds.

Away from Brodick, there is more excellent walking, both along the coast and in the hills. The Arran Coastal Way offers some spectacular views and is a great way to explore the island and its many seaside villages.

For golfers, there are seven golf courses across the island, many of them with spectacular views. In the village of Lamlash, 4 miles away, there is an outdoor centre where you can arrange sea kayaking and canoeing. Wildlife spotting boat trips can also be arranged.


This property is personally managed by Carol.

We were delighted with the welcome pack of local produce & essential foods etc. The accommodation with it's seaside theme & the garden area are just wonderful & we found ourselves takinRead moreg lots of photo's of the quirky way it has all been done. The sea view from the large bedroom window is mesmerizing & you find yourself ship spotting whenever you pass it. The furnishings & all equipment, (even the cutlery), are just right. Although St.Minver is an annex of Anne & John's main property, there was never a time where we felt that it was intrusive during our stay. In fact they are perfect host's & will offer any help with information regarding the surrounding area, local cafe's, & restaurant's if you want it. We had some great meals in Crofters in Brodick, (make sure you book) & they do a great steak night. You will not regret staying at St Minver. 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.
