Property code: CA312

A wonderful white-washed cottage on the southwest coast of the Isle of Arran, perfect for exploring the sandy shores, quaint villages and ancient castles that dot the island.

Wake up to views over the rolling green fields of the Isle of Arran and look out across the Kilbrannan Sound to the Kintyre peninsula from this charming island retreat. Take in vistas of Sanda Island from this cottage which sleeps up to five guests, and on a clear day you can even spot Ireland. Enjoy your stone-built holiday home as a base from which to discover the rest of beautiful Arran – go walking, cycling and watching wildlife, possibly including seals, otters and even dolphins.

Enter your cosy abode and feel yourself relax immediately. Find its easy combination of country-style interiors and natural wood instantly homely. Discover everything has been laid out with your comfort and ease of holiday living in mind.

Open the front door to your traditional holiday property; hang up your coats and leave your walking boots in the hall. Step through into your cottage kitchen/diner, where you can prepare hearty dinners to enjoy at the table. Relax afterwards in your inviting lounge and perhaps watch a DVD or set up the PlayStation. Open the French doors in here to let in a fresh Scottish breeze and gaze out towards the sea. One of your bedrooms and your family bathroom is at this level too.

As night falls, head up the spiral staircase to find your two additional bedrooms. Drift off in these cottage-style spaces as you gaze up at the clear night skies.

Enjoy relaxing in your private gardens during the day. Light the BBQ out here on summer evenings. Follow the path down to the beach, where you can picnic, paddle and watch the sun as it sets.

From your sleepy hamlet on the south west coast of Arran, soak up the tranquillity of the beautiful island and immerse yourself in the dramatic Scottish landscape. Stroll down to the pebble beach close to your home, head off on long hill walks or cycle rides and even go horse riding or sailing on the island while you are here. Visit Kildonan, some 8 miles away: this village is also on the coast and enjoys views out across the water to the Ayrshire shores and the islands of Pladda and Ailsa Craig. Look out for the ruins of the 13th-century castle behind the village – this keep was originally built by the Lords of the Isles. Drive 10 miles to the pretty village of Lamlash, with its colourful independent shops and inviting cafés. Catch the ferry from here over to picturesque Holy Isle. Visit Brodick, some 14 miles away, and climb Goat Fell while you are in the area. This is the tallest mountain on the island. Also worth a visit are the Machrie Moor Standing Stones, 10 miles away from your holiday home. Together these form the best-known archaeological site on Arran and include six stone circles all believed to date from between 3500 and 1500 BC.

A nice homely cottage containing the owners personal touches. Warm and cosy with a lovely view over to the sea. Great peaceful location with access down to the deserted shoreline which we enjoyed on numerous occasions. We found it the ideal place to press the reset button.

A lovely, comfy cottage away from it all. Jaw dropping views, peaceful and fully equipped. You do need to travel for food and shopping so well worth preparing to self cater, unless you don't mind travelling. Loved private beach 10 minutes walk away but sometimes cows are in field you have to walk through so this might not suit everyone (but out of Read moreowner's control). We loved every minute of a get away from it all holiday. So lovely sitting in the large garden. Dog especially loved the beach. Hide

Awful level of cleanliness. Cottage was filthy. Some of the mugs were unusable & we had to go and buy new ones. Bathroom was disgusting- thick back mould & bacteria in the grout. Toilet had obviously not been cleaned. Outside the flag stones were dangerously uneven and a real hazard. Step out from the French windows had crumbled badly and pieces ofRead more mason were left. The FW themselves were very dirty with hand prints & smears. Wont be staying there again. Hide

A beautiful well equipped cottage with the most stunning views across to the Mull of Kintyre. A wonderful feel of being away from it all as the cottage stands in its own lovely large gardens. The kitchen has absolutely everything you'd need, the shower is very hot and was sparkling clean. Living room is very comfortable with the fantastic view righRead moret through the French doors. We had an amazing time on the beautiful Isle of Arran and would highly recommend this stunning cottage. 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.
