Comfortable family home with easily accessible beach and far-reaching sea views, perfect for enjoying Arran's remarkable west-coast sunsets.

Situated in a tranquil location only a short distance from the sea, this imposing four-bedroom property is perfect for families or group of friends seeking to explore the spectacular coastline and countryside of the Isle of Arran. Stroll a mile along the shoreline to the picturesque village of Pirnmill, where you will find a welcoming tearoom, ideal for refreshment after an afternoon on the beach. Further afield are the expansive beaches at Blackwaterfoot; visit Lochranza for rock pooling and beach games and the Distillery, Café, and Visitor Centre or head inland for hill walks, pony trekking and mountain biking. With 7 golf courses to choose from, and the nearest at Machrie, only four miles from Westfield, you can play them all during your stay.

With wonderful sea views from every room except the bathrooms, this coastal cottage offers spacious accommodation with a homely feel. Gather together in the generous living room for family board games or dine alfresco in the garden, watching the ever-changing sea views over the Kintyre Peninsula.

Ascend the steps to the front door and enter your welcoming holiday home. Rustle up family meals in the generous farmhouse kitchen, an inviting space with cosy Rayburn stove. Share leisurely suppers around the dining table, chatting late into the night. Sink into one of the sumptuous sofas in the living room and while away the hours watching the ever-changing sea-scape from the large windows.

Taking the staircase to the first floor, there are four well-appointed bedrooms, all decorated in soothing tones and enjoying sea views. You will also find the bright and airy family bathroom plus a modern shower room on this floor.

Complete the 65-mile Arran Way by foot or cycle to see the whole of Arran's spectacular coastline or climb Goatfell (15.5 miles) to reach the highest point on the island.

Dominated by its dramatic ruined castle projecting out into Loch Ranza, the scenic village of Lochranza (9 miles) is home to the Isle of Arran Distillery – take a tour to discover the traditional methods used to make the island whisky and maybe sample a dram or two.

You can also catch the ferry from Lochranza to Claonaig on the Kintyre peninsula, allowing you to explore some of western Scotland.

Spend the day at the beach at Blackwaterfoot (11 miles) with its expanse of sandy beach perfect for cricket, picnic lunches and rock pooling. Here you will find a grocery store, bakery and butcher for your everyday needs. From the village, take the coastal path to explore the King's Cave, a series of caverns in the sandstone cliffs where legend has it Robert the Bruce encountered the famous spider.

Westfield was a great base for our holiday with two families. Cosy and warm feeling but spacious enough for everyone to have their own spot. We loved this side of the island and the little beach which is close enough to take a kayak and BBQ down to without the usual palaver.

Westfield is a lovely house in a great location. Nice big kitchen, very well equipped, confortable bedrooms. Loved watching the weather over Kintyre. Good walking, nice beach at Kildonan, meal at The Lighthouse in Pirnmill, gardens at Brodick Castle and history at The Heritage Centre. Recommended.

The house is located in a quiet part of the island with pleasant views towards Kintyre. The property is well maintained and equipped and has many pleasant features giving character.

Second time we stayed in this amazing property. Well equipped with everything you would need for a family holiday. An extra shower room added since our last visit which does make a difference if youre a larger group. The views and walks are lovely and so much quieter than the west side of the island. Had a few nice walks up at Lochranza and also aRead more visit to The Byrne this time. Party of 5 all ages and plenty of space. So peaceful and a kitchen that would be the envy of most.

We loved this house it was equipped with every thing you could possibly need, the only downside was there was only 1 bathroom wow managed but it would have been better with another toilet at least.

Probably the cleanest, most tastefully decorated and best provided cottage we've stayed in on Arran. The kitchen was a joy to cook in. Five of us stayed on a freezing cold Easter week. The house was beautifully warm - once we'd sussed the oil rayburn. The stove in the lounge was a bonus. Sharing a single bathroom between 5 took a little organisatioRead moren, but we managed. Had worried that we'd be troubled by traffic - as the main road around the island goes past the front door - but hardly heard or saw a thing, more tractors and buses than cars. Sunsets from front spectacular - and lovely to see the newborn lambs in the field opposite. Even saw a seal in the bay one morning. Shop and restaurant in the village more than met our needs. A true escape from cares and tribulations. A haven of peace. 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.
