Whiting Bay (2.5 miles) is a popular seaside resort and is the third largest village on Arran. Overlooking the sea, it is a lively and vibrant village offering an array of shops and eateries to explore. The area is famous for its walking trail through Glenashdale Falls forest, which offers some fantastic woodland walks; it is also home to what is said to be Arran's most spectacular waterfall.

Lamlash (3.5 miles) lies north at the top of the bay and is considered Arran's largest village by population. The attractive little village has a variety of shops, restaurants, hotels and tearooms, inviting visitors in to try some of their local delicacies. Offering stunning views over Lamlash Bay, the village has a thriving harbour and is renowned for its emphasis on sailing. Here you will be able to take a day trip to Holy Island which is owned by Tibetan monks, to explore its unique island culture.

We had a fabulous stay at Tigh Na Mara. Perfect location with stunning views out over Brodick Bay and Goatfell. The house itself was beautiful. Great facilities, spotlessly clean. We couldnt ask for more. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Tigh Na Mara. Five stars all the way!

We had a lovely week in summer cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and hosts were great. Having the beach just a few minutes walk away was amazing and really made the holiday for us.

The cottage was very comfortable and in a beautiful situation. Access to the local wild beach was a particular bonus and delight. We enjoyed everything we did on Arran and hope to return.

Lovely cottage and an ideal location for exploring Arran. Less than 15 minutes drive from Brodick, Summer Cottage was well equipped, nice and cosy and comfortable. The very friendly owners were on-site to greet us and explain how everything worked in the property and did occasionally pop by to see that all was well. The large double bedroom had an Read moreen-suite bathroom and the large sitting area with conservatory was a pleasant space to be in - we even had a red squirrel run across the roof! Only slight criticism would be the second bedroom as our boys (aged 12 and 14) were a bit big for the bunk beds, but if you are coming with younger children or as a couple then Summer Cottage makes an ideal base for discovering the wonderful Isle of Arran.

We absolutely loved our stay at Summer Cottage. The location, the view, the beach... simply stunning. The cottage is superbly equipped and had everything we needed. Even a dishwasher :)! Hosts were also lovely and gave us great tips on what to see and do on beautiful Arran. We will definitely be back!

Cottage lovely - very cosy, light, very well-equipped. A very short walk to the sea (overlooking Holy Island) and the coastal path. 30 mins walk along it to Whiting Bay. Nothing too much trouble for the owners next door and lots of helpful advice. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time staying at summer cottage. The location was perfect, only 10 mins drive to Brodick, less to Whiting bay & Lamlash but felt a million miles away as was so peaceful and quiet. Beautiful views from beach at the bottom of the garden & a great place for kids to paddle in clear lovely water.

The conservatory got very hot but we enjoyed it by keeping the door to patio open. Definitely would love to come back. The family in the house adjoining have been coming in the sunmer for 30 years, which tells you how special the place is. Thanks for a lovely stay. Hide

We had such a wonderful stay at Summer Cottage. The accommodation is comfortable and pretty, with a beautiful sun lounge. The outdoor space is gorgeous, and extremely well-maintained by Mrs Haddow. We were made so welcome and no attention was spared. Lots of helpful little extra touches in the cottage. Many thanks for a fantastic holiday.

This is a fantastic cottage. It is a couple minutes walk to a tranquil quiet beach with a view over to the Holy Isle. It is very well located being between Whiting Bay and Lamlash, but it is very easy to drive around the island to other places. You can walk from the cottage to Lamlash or Whiting Bay along the coast. The owners are there when you arRead morerive to answer any questions and very helpful. The living area is very light and bright as has a conservatory attached.

We loved summer cottage and have already booked for next year. The setting is beautiful and a short stroll downhill is a sand and shingle beach.

We ate in Whiting bay a few times at Coast which was nice but a little pricey and the coffee pot is great for a lunch as the food is good quality and reasonably priced. We often walked in and back using the costal path which was nice. In whiting bay itself the coffee pot and bay view stores (which does a nice coffee) is useful to get wifi as the mobile signal is poor which didnt bother us but as long as our 16 year old had an hour or so on the wifi daily he was happy. There are so many lovely walks in the local area and I suggest getting a walking guide from the tourist info at brodick. We love Arran and this accomodation made our holiday just perfect. Looking forward to returning next year 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.
