This Isle of Arran retreat is a charming cottage, sitting amid picturesque grounds beside the sweeping water of the Firth of Clyde. The perfect place to set off for adventures around the island.

The setting of this bonnie cottage is idyllic, with views across the Firth of Clyde and neighbouring mountains. For those that wish to spend time among nature, this beautifully presented property has it all. Families and friends can relax in the property’s pretty garden, which stretches for 3 acres and boasts its own woodland to explore. Another highlight is the small sandy beach that is accessible from the cottage; wild and rugged, this forms the perfect spot for a family picnic or early morning walk with your dog.

The interior of this property is equally charming as its facade with traditional cottage features and warm rich tones. The cottage exudes a homely and comfortable atmosphere for you and your family or friends in which to relax after a day’s exploring. The lounge provides plenty of rustic charm with exposed wooden beams, open log fire and comfortable leather sofa and chairs. Mealtimes will be a pleasure in the comfortable kitchen/diner with country cottage-style features including an exposed stone wall and wooden table and chairs. Upstairs, you will find the bedrooms. These are relatively simple in style, yet comfortable and cosy. This cottage offers a lovely home-from-home experience in spectacular surroundings.

Outside, the enclosed garden has a picnic table where you can relax and soak up the breathtaking scenery. Here you’ll find a contrasting landscape of open water and mountains - simply divine! This is the perfect setting for families and friends to enjoy a wee dram after an evening meal.

We had a fabulous week. The cottage is ideally located, back from the road and within fabulous grounds. The access to the coastal path from the garden was a real treat. The fact that the garden was home to our regular visitors, the red squirrels, was yet another bonus. The owners could not have been more helpful when we were faced with cancelled feRead morerries.

I would say Woodside Cottage has the best location on Arran. Wonderful mountain views, excellent mature gardens and a gate straight on to Sannox beach. The cottage itself provides a comfortable home from home. We enjoyed our weeks stay immensely.

Our holiday was unfortunately greatly affected by the breakdown of the Ferry service from Ardrossan to Brodick. This resulted in us having to travel earlier than planned and our son being unable to bring his car. However, we should add that the owners of Woodside Cottage and their representative were extremely helpful in this situation for which weRead more were very grateful. 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.
