Set on the coast of the Isle of Arran and with fantastic views across the beautiful Brodick Bay, this cosy and welcoming property makes a lovely holiday home for a family seeing a delightful getaway.

This Isle of Arran family villa offers the best of all worlds, as it teases the eye and inspires the soul with showstopping views across Brodick Bay to Goatfell and the castle beyond. Sleeping eight people across four bedrooms, it is the ideal base for large families and groups of friends looking to enjoy the abundant country pursuits on offer whilst still enjoying access to lots of local facilities. From your morning pastries from the local bakery to afternoon strolls by the water to nights curled up by the woodburner, every moment of each day will be one to treasure forever.

The accommodation is just as attractive on the inside as it is inviting on the outside, this waterside self-catering home in the Isle of Arran welcomes you to enjoy the kind of holiday you’ll be talking about long after you leave. Boasting just the right amount of homeliness, modern conveniences, and luxurious comforts, starting and ending each day of your holiday here will be a pleasure. Beginning in the kitchen, a well-equipped space provides everything you could need and more for whipping up gastronomical masterpieces for all the clan from breakfast ‘til bedtime. Located down a small flight of stairs, the kitchen is also accompanied by a dining room, meaning you can give each meal the ceremony it deserves. Perfect for lazy mornings and rainy afternoons, a comfortable lounge comes complete with a woodburner and TV. Snuggle up with a book, boardgame or movie and zone out for a while, or huddle together with mugs of tea and laugh over shared anecdotes. A four-bedroom property, every member of your group is guaranteed somewhere comfortable to rest at the end of every day. As well as two super king-size bedrooms on the ground floor, you will also find two bedrooms upstairs: a double bedroom and a bedroom with bunk beds and cot, ideal for children. Slip between the crisp sheets and sink into a deep and easy sleep, dreaming about the promise of more adventures tomorrow.

Inviting guests to savour superb views over Brodick Bay from within, the outside of the property allows you to take another step closer to the wild surrounds. Take advantage of the sunshine in summer and take your lunch or dinner alfresco in the enclosed garden. Here, an outdoor table and chairs provide the perfect arena for full-blown feasts or amuse-bouches with ice-topped G&Ts. Of course, there is a whole host of activities right on your doorstep too and you can easily hop across the road to dabble your feet in the Firth of Clyde or admire the everchanging scenery.

An ideal base to explore the island. There was ample room for 8 adults to live comfortably. We cooked everyday and even though the kitchen is small it was very well equipped as was the rest of the house. If my family would wish to visit Arran together again I wouldnt hesitate to enquire if Tigh Na Mara is available. Oh and I forgot to mention the aRead moremazing view from the lounge window. Breathtaking! Hide

Beautiful, clean, comfortable, we'll equipped house with a lovely garden & stunning views over Brodick bay to the hills. Only a short walk from the ferry terminal, co-op across the road, Chinese takeaway & the Brodick bar/restaurant minutes away.

We stayed at the Tigh Na Mara in the middle of May 2019. The house is perfectly situated in Brodick Bay with the added bonus of a view of GoatFell from the sitting room window. When we arrived on a slightly chilly day we found the Central Heating was on all ready and the house lovely and warm, all ways a good start. The house is extremely well equiRead morepped you could not have asked for more, the owner's have obviously spent a lot of time studying the needs of holiday makers. During our week long stay we fell in love with Arran and will definitely be back, and would not hesitate to book Tigh Na Mara again. Hide

Tigh Na Mara was absolutely beautiful, decor was relaxing and rooms were very comfortable. Amazing views and perfect location. The mogabout safari is worth going on, very informative.

A very relaxing and comfortable , especailly looking out of the lounge window across the sea and to Brodick Castle and beyond. Gus the owner was very attentive, helpful and considerate.

Lovely comfortable home close to all amenities. Everything we could wish for was there. We were 3 generations and tigh na Mara suited all from beach and parks to music and food in local pubs. We made soap in Arran Aromatics, sampled locally made ice cream every day. Arran catered well for our Grandson with allergies. Great holiday

Reviewed by Mrs Dostal March 2019

Tigh Na Mara is a beautiful home, and the views of Goat Fell and the bay from the living room window are especially nice. We spent hours reading and looking out of the window, I would never get tired of that view. We were 8 persons and did not feel cramped at all, there is room for everyone to sit in the living room and at the dinner table. The houRead morese has a great location, you can walk along the beach, see the shops and visit the restaurants on foot. We had cars, but this would be a great house even if you were just on foot, its a short walk from the ferry terminal, and you can get to Ardrossan on the other side by train. We went to Crofters (formally Fiddlers) which was the best as always, live music and amazing food. And Hooked and Cooked one night for a takeaway, also very good, and the Auchrannie Resort one night (which again you can walk to from the house easily) which is a beautiful hotel and restaurant. In terms of sightseeing Arran has everything, but I would always recommend Machrie Moor stone circles and Eas Mor waterfall (which has an adorable library in the woods nearby) if you have a car. If you don't you can walk from the house to Brodick Castle which has lovely gardens, and the shops nearby (Arran Aromatics, Arran Cheese shop, Arran Brewery) are all great to visit. And Goat Fell is a fantastic walk which you can do from the house, but bring walking boots as it is pretty strenuous! I love Arran, it's literally everything good about Scotland in one small package.

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.
