A fantastic architect designed family holiday house, sitting up on the rugged Sliddery Braes with glorious views. This is a wonderful house – modern comforts and conveniences with a real traditional sense of warmth from the warm-water underfloor heating throughout the house. Watch the sun setting over the sea and the far shore and also the winking lights of the lighthouses as they stand guard on the coastline. The views are simply beautiful and memorable and on good days you can see across to Ailsa Craig and the Mull of Kintyre and over to the Rhins of Galloway. The house is down a short track that is readily passable by cars. There is another rough track down to the beach where you can enjoy fantastic rock-pooling, beach combing, and wildlife watching for seals and birds.

The self catering house itself is spacious and beautifully equipped with a design that allows you to make the most of the outdoors and the views. Juliet balconies, French doors and outdoor patios are all there to maximise your enjoyment of the views. There are 2 lounges, so plenty of space for those who want to relax with a DVD, video or book in the smaller sun lounge, while the welcoming larger lounge with a wood burning stove is perfect to gather and discuss the day’s adventures. A single downstairs bedroom with an en-suite shower room is ideal for any elderly or less mobile members of the party.

Lighthouses is a wonderful large holiday house – fantastic location, wonderful spacious house, beautifully furnished and equipped – this is a house that has it all.

    Lighthouses reviews
    Lovely spot with fantastic views. House was very nice with plenty of space. Kids loved the bunk beds. Could have done with even small garden for toddler to play in as the sheep field is a bit tough going for them. Good holiday away
    Mr Logan - March 2019
    Beautiful house which is well equipped and very comfortable
    Mr Wilson - August 2017
    A fantastic view across to the Mull of Kintyre was a lovely way to start and end each day. The cottage was toasty warm and large enough to sit all together or find a separate space if needed. A well equipped place to stay and the caretakers next door were incredibly friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We were a party of four adults and managed with the balconied sleeping arrangements and the traveling of sound in a mostly open plan arrangement but I think that, unless you're a family with two children ok to share the bunk bedroom or a group of 6 who all go to bed and get up at the same time, sleeping 8 comfortably and noise free would be a challenge. That said, we had a very good time.
    Mrs Roberts - October 2016
    The cottage had very good accommodation facilities and views. We were blessed with very good weather for the full week. There is no better place than Arran when the sun shines. BBQ's for several evenings using the good BBQ at the cottage. Lots of golf & walking. Would definitely return to Lighthouses.
    Mr Denton - May 2016
    We had such a wonderful stay at Lighthouses, the house is beautiful and super comfortable. We were a family of 5 adults, 2 little ones and a dog and felt like we had plenty of space, and weren't bothered in the slightest about the mezzanine bedroom. A lot of self catering houses we've stayed in, in the past, are getting a bit tatty and tired, but not here, it's got all the mod-cons and feels warm, modern and well cared for. The views are outstanding (granted we were lucky enough to get a beautiful stretch of weather) so we could see over to mull of kintyre and the Antrim coast, as well as getting some stunning sunsets. If we were coming back to Arran, I wouldn't hesitate booking Lighthouses again, it's a fantastic find on a really beautiful Island.
    Miss Currie - March 2016
    The house itself is superbly designed with fantastic views in all directions. It has light pouring in, brightening up even rainy days and the open plan design of the house is homely, comfortable and warm. The upper balcony bedroom is part of the whole living area and the downstairs bedroom is perfect for a less mobile family member. We loved looking out at the sea and beyond to Kintyre and Northern Ireland, I would definitely recommend taking your binoculars! We saw several red squirrels nearby. The owners mother, Margaret, was close by if we needed anything and was very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
    Mr Howes - July 2015
    We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Lighthouses. Our party included two families of four each and there was plenty of space for us all, even when the weather was wet. The property is close to local shops and restaurants in Shiskine and Blackwaterfoot and is only 20-25 minutes from Brodick. If you are looking for a little bit of piece and quiet with great uninterrupted views then Lighthouses is for you.
    Mr Thomson - July 2015
    Great house, we had a lovely holiday despite the weather. Very clean and tidy with nice bedding and towels. Well equipped especially with cleaning products, only a few missing items like pint glasses for example. Spacious and light. Excellent dramatic changeable sea views. A welcome bottle of wine or local ware would have been a nice touch. Good house for a dog as easy to clean up after them. Great location for exploring, although would probably stay on East side of the Island next time for the calmer weather!
    Mrs Partington - May 2015
    This cottage has everything you need. The fire, the views, all ideal for a gorgeous getaway. The local shops in Blackwaterfoot have most of the things you'll need and the logs from their garage are cheaper than you'll get in Brodick. The kitchen has good quality equipment and the wifi was better than we have at home! The views are spectacular and we didn't do much more than sit in front of the fire with a drink looking over to Kintyre (and the stars at night - wow!). The property is maintained to a very high standard and really clean - great showers too. Although there is plenty of room for a group, it didn't feel too big for the pair of us. The owner's parents who live close by were lovely and friendly - but left us to our own devices too. The local pub is about a 30 min walk - but to be honest you won't want to leave the fire in the house. We'll definitely be back and would highly recommend.
    Mr Mackeown - October 2014
    Great week away with the kids and friends. We were two families with young children and the property is away from the road so we were relaxed about the kids running about outside. The house was well equiped and very spacious so plenty room for 3 young kids. The only "fault " with the house was the mezzanine level bedroom which we didn't realise at the time of booking wasn't a completely separate room. We had blackout blinds to make the living room dark so it wasn't too much of an issue but if you have 2 couples you will have to toss a coin! Overall - great holiday, lovely house and views and we would come back.
    Mrs Raffan - July 2014
    Slightly less glamorous that it looked in the photos, partly because of the proximity of other properties.......... But still good. We enjoyed exploring the Corriecravie Tor/Dun beside the house on our last morning - it might be worth mentioning it as an added attraction!
    Ms Clark - April 2014
    Beautifully appointed property, ideal for a New Year Break. Very warm underfloor heating. Fabulous views.
    Dr Hogg - December 2013
    A home with such a fantastic outlook over the sea with constantly changing views of the light on the water. Lighthouses is thoughtfully equipped, with everything necessary for an enjoyable holiday. Don't miss the directions to the beach at Corriecravie
    Mr Hubbard - August 2013
    Well equiped, very comfortable, spacious property. The 2 slice toaster could be inadequate for a booking of 8 people.Good selection of books, games and DVDs for rainy days. TV and WIFI connection excellent. The approach to the front of the property is overlooked by the two adjoining properties which could be a disadvantage if you are looking for complete privacy. However, the terrace at the rear of the property is completely private with glorious views across Kilbrannan Sound to the Kintyre Peninsula.The coast of Northern Ireland is clearly visible on a good day.
    Mr Jones - June 2013
    At the landside the house is attached to two other houses which are rented out as well and take away a large part of the privacy. At the other side the house is located less than a yard from another home. I consider the picture of your ad to be misleading. There are two large bedrooms. It is not clearly mentioned that one of the bedrooms is in direct contact with the sittingroom due to the construction of a vide in the house. This takes away a large part of the privacy required. After these two disappointments at the start the week was very good and comfortabele.
    Mr Reijrink - June 2013
    the cottage has been furnished to a very comfortable standard and the underfloor heating is very good. We just missed the bad snow by a week but could still see signs of the drifts. The road down to the house is quite rough, but even my low slung saloon managed with care. Sunsets over the mull were beautiful. I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting peace and solitude. The nearest shop is at Blackwaterfoot, 4 miles and is adequately stocked for the basics.
    Mr Stoddart - April 2013
    Lovely house, all the facilities you could wish for, beautiful views, spacious, friendly and helpful owners. Would definitely go again.
    Mr Hickman - March 2013
    Lighthouses was a very comfortable well equipped house which we found ideal for our family holiday. We had 6 adults and 3children in our partyand there was plenty of space for all. The view from the house was spectacular looking out to Mull of Kintyre and the sunsets were fantastic.The outside space was fine although a grassy area for the children to play on would have been good We thought we had use of the huge lawned area next to the house but that belonged to the adjacent building unfortunately. The dirt track leading to the house had to be taken very slowly as it was very uneven in places. Apart from these few minor inconveniences Lighthouses was a great holiday home on a beautiful island.
    Mr Scanlan - August 2012
    The cottage had plenty space for everyone and was very well equipped. The view from the cottage was spectacular. The owners were very helpful and welcoming without being intrusive in any way. The cottage was clean and very comfortable - ideal for families.
    Mrs Ahamed - July 2012
    A super holiday in Lighthouses, this is the second time we have stayed there. Lovely house with excellent bedrooms and bathrooms / showers. Great views. Everyone was very positive on the overall facilities. Only negatives were possible signs of damp / patched paintwork on a couple of walls, track leading down to the house becomes more rutted with time and " spikey" bushes etc to the side scratched my car. It would be a good idea to have these cut back. One could debate the house is a bit remote but that is a choice you make. Bill Tait very helpful and friendly.
    Owners Response: "Thank you very much for choosing to return to Lighthouses and I’m delighted to hear that your party enjoyed their visit to Arran and Sliddery in particular again this year. I’m also grateful for the feedback on what we can do to maintain and improve the experience of families staying in the house. We agree that the time has come to redecorate and this should address your point on the interior paintwork. The condition of the track varies depending on the timing of any heavy weather and the repair work that may be necessary as a result. I’m sorry if the track wasn’t in as good a state as previously at the time of your stay. Bill and I try to keep it in shape on an ongoing basis and level and compact any ruts as they emerge, but this can take a little time. Given the level of maintenance required, we are looking at alternative methods of strengthening the track base on a more permanent basis. As for the spiky bush – I think this must be the huge fuschia plant at the corner of our drive which seems to have gone ballistic this summer. I am very sorry your car was scratched by this. We have this year engaged a gardener to keep the external areas in shape through the season and he will keep this cut back."
    Mr Crichton - July 2011
    Very disappointed on arrival that the house was part of a holiday complex, with three other rental properties and the owners house. The description says "The house is down a short track that is readily passable by cars and ensures you have a secluded location." The pictures do not make it apparent that it is actually attached to two other properties rather than detached. We love to be completely isolated, and always take great care to check if a property is part of a complex, e.g. avoiding barn conversions, and checking adverts for other properties in the locality. In this case, the other three properties are not advertised through "Cottages and Castles". The other three properties are represented by the owners website, but Lighthouses is not on it. This is such a priority for us as we want to be away from big groups, or children running round. Therefore would not recommend for romantic getaway. The house was however very well equipped, with wonderful views and very comfortable and attractive - 5 star accomodation.
    Owners Response: "  From Cottages and Castles: thank you for your feedback as suggested we have updated our copy. From the Owner: Lighthouses is the largest letting property on a small development created from the refurbishment and conversion of a long abandoned farmstead. The owner's parents live in the former farmhouse, which is to the side and slightly set back from Lighthouses. The house faces outwards from the rest of the farm, with the entrance on the north side overlooking the Corriecravie valley and the front of the house, with double doors to the Juliet balcony in the master bedroom and to the sunroom and lounge on the ground floor, all making the most of the marvellous views. The house is not overlooked and other cottages are not in sight from any of the windows. We have always thought of it as a secluded spot, but I do understand that this is not the same as solitude. We are sorry that you were disappointed with the setting, and would like to send you a gift by way of apology and to sweeten your memories of your stay on Arran!"
    Mrs Markham - June 2011
    This was a very well appointed property providing everything that we needed. It was clean and the facilities provided were also of a very high standard e.g. fridge freezer, cooker, washing machine, dishwasher etc. The access road was in good order. The views from the property are impressive. Some improvements should have been made to the exterior garden and seating area- these were a little overgrown and weed ridden. Had the exterior matched the interior the property would be complete, It is situated on the south western tip of the Island so expect to drive or cycle some distances to see the rest of the Island.
    Mrs Johnson - August 2010
    A lovely cottage in an excellent location. It is remote, but that is not unusual on Arran. The cottage is a novel design which works well as a holiday home having two generous double rooms, a bunk bedroom and a ground floor single with a skylight which our son thought very exciting. It is well appointed and has great views across the Irish Sea to Ayrshire, Kintyre and AiIsa Craig. We spent many a happy hour gazing out to sea whilst enjoying a beer. We did have problems with the smoke alarm in the kitchen which went off as soon as any bacon or sausage approached anything like being cooked, but that is todays health and safety requirements and we did have noisy neighbours one day but I think the sheep in the various adjoining fields were having their annual bleating competition. The owners parents lived next door and were very helpful and friendly. The nearest pub is the Lagg Hotel, in a very picturesque location, which is a good two miles away and we did walk there the first night. Served reasonable food but I don't remember the beer being anything special. We came in July 2010 and the weather was poor, but we do intend to revisit Arran and hope for less rain. Overall, a high quality holiday cottage that we thoroughly enjoyed staying in.
    Mr Piper - July 2010
