    Glenburn reviews
    Fantastic views, beautiful house, large main bedroom, well equipped kitchen and friendly owners. Can not fault this place at all. Definitely will plan to go back.
    Mr Clark - October 2018
    We enjoyed two great weeks on Arran, and our holiday accommodation at Glenburn was exceptional. Clean, spacious and comfortable, the property has stunning views over Whiting Bay and everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who are next door if needed, but otherwise leave you to get on with your holiday. We loved Arran and loved Glenburn. Very impressive.
    Mrs Lawton - September 2018
    Wonderful time was had by all and I would highly recommend this property. However, the unmade road that leads to the property could cause serious damage to some vehicles and a torch in the house would help to negotiate the road if walking after dark. However, the above are observations and would not deter me from staying again!! Thank you Karen and Rob.
    Owners Response: "So glad you had a good time, and that you would recommend the property to others. Regarding the driveway, we do maintain this on a regular basis and it has been done since you left. Thank you for drawing our attention to the torch - there is usually one in the property, so I will replace it immediately."
    Miss Wills - September 2018
    This was our first visit to Arran and what a way to start it arriving at Glenburn. The house was amazing with great views. Great facilities and information about local attractions. We walked up to Glenashdale falls which were beautiful especially as it had been raining the night before so they were in full flow. We also enjoyed a trip over to Holy Isle which we would highly recommend. Overall we had great holiday and will definitely be back.
    Mrs Pretswell - August 2018
    I cannot praise Glenburn enough. The property is stunning, wonderfully equipped and spacious. It certainly has the wow factor. The views from the large picture windows are fantastic; you could spend hours just staring out to sea. Karen was the perfect host, unobtrusive but next door if we needed anything. Be aware though that it is at the top of a fairly steep, partly unmade road. The cottage is located in Whiting Bay. Having never been to Arran before we were pleased we came here. The village runs along the shoreline, is beautifully maintained and although peaceful has all the facilities you need. We ate in Felicities a number of times and Coast, both which were good. Our favourite though was Bay Stores, just at the bottom of the drive. They sold everyone you could want and more, and their coffee and croissants in the morning were fab. Arran is great for wildlife, we saw seals, porpoises and deer. To summarise, an outstanding property with views to die for in a lovely village. Oh and we had wall to wall sunshine.
    Ms Aitken - June 2018
    Wonderful spacious and light filled house with stunning views. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Everything had been thought of. The master bedroom really has the ‘wow factor’. We ate at home more than we usually do on holiday because the kitchen was very well equipped and the huge conservatory was a lovely space to eat in with better views than any restaurant. The house looks amazing in the photos on the website but is even better when you get there. I genuinely walked around the house in disbelief when we arrived! A wonderful place to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Nothing to fault.
    Mr Cook - April 2018
    I have stayed in many Self Catering properties in the UK including some very good ones in the Lake District but I can say that this is the best one I have stayed in by far. The property has an excellent location with splendid views and privacy. The accommodation is spacious and uncluttered with just the right amount of equipment for a pleasant and relaxing stay. A big thank you to the owners. I will certainly look to book again the next time I'm back on Arran.
    Mr Robinson - April 2018
    It's a beautiful spacious house, with lots of light (even when it was rainy outside), and a commanding view of the Firth of Clyde and Holy Island. We watched birds and ships through the big tripod-mounted monocular in the sitting room. Sadly it was too cloudy to make good use of the telescope in the conservatory, but we did lie on the heated conservatory floor and look at the stars when they peeped out. The location is good - there are lots of walks direct from the house, and the Bay Stores is nearby. The kitchen was very well equipped. There's an eclectic selection of books and lots of board games. It was good to have a washing machine and clothes drying rack. The house was nice and warm. The extra single bed was a proper comfortable bed, not a folding contraption, and there was plenty of room for it in the huge master bedroom. I think sunny mornings in midsummer could be a bit challenging as the master bedroom is so bright - there is fabric to hang over the bed frame, but this might not be quite enough.
    Ms Ambler - April 2018
    My Husband and I stayed at Glenburn over the Easter Holidays with our 2 dogs. What makes Glenburn so special are the stunning sea view of Whiting Bay and the Holy Isle. It was fully equipped with everything you need to offer that real home from home cosy feel. The weather wasn’t the best, however it didn’t matter as the property is so beautiful it was no hardship to stay indoors.
