Full of history and romance, this fabulous 19th-century tower house has been transformed into a luxurious holiday home sleeping eight guests on the west coast of the beautiful Isle of Arran. Originally built in 1875 for the Duke of Hamilton, this impressive property is in a prime position by the River Iorsa within the parklands of the impressive white-painted Dougarie Lodge. Guests here are surrounded by beautiful countryside with stunning views across the sea to the Kintyre Peninsula. The Dougarie Beach is a magical place to spend an afternoon. A simply wonderful property for a luxury holiday or special occasion for family and friends to gather and relax.
Laid out over three floors, this truly delightful and extremely stylish self-catering house accommodates the eight guests in great comfort. Fabrics and furnishings, subtle lighting and decoration have all been carefully selected to enhance its special character.
The grand arch entrance, thick castellated walls, original slate roof and arrow-slit windows add to the romance and give this house its quirky charm. The stylish kitchen is perfect for making family meals, with the double glass doors opening into a large sitting/dining room creating a wonderfully sociable space; gather everyone together for meals around a table seating up to eight. Afterwards, enjoy long evenings in front of the open fire. The ground floor also has French doors opening out onto the garden.
