    Point House reviews
    Absolutely wonderful. Never wanted to leave
    Mrs Smith - March 2019
    We recently returned from a wonderful holiday on Arran. As a family group of 6 ranging from grandparents to a 2 year old and not having visited Arran before, we spent considerable time beforehand researching the island and suitable properties for our varied needs. The success of the holiday was greatly down to staying in Point House. The location is superb: lovely views all round, a beautiful 2 minute walk to the shore, child-friendly gardens around a large, welcoming property with plenty of space to spread and lots of corners to hide away. This is not a smart, designer-inspired house (look elsewhere, and probably not Arran if you want that) but is entirely comfortable without feeling precious. We all loved it. The owners live close by and welcomed us on arrival and were discretely available if help was needed. Lamlash is the nearest village and caters for most needs. Holiday highlights were Machrie stone circles and Goatfell for the grown-ups, nearby beaches and Brodick Castle adventure playground for the kids. It's worth noting that mobile reception is very poor by the house. Just turn it off and enjoy the holiday.
    Mr Lawson - August 2018
    A rating of 4.5 would be better. There are improvements in the future that would make it 5 star. Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the owners very helpful when approached. We were lucky with the weather but in the event of poor weather the house would be comfortable. We self catered all week and were surprised there was no supply of fish on the island. We enjoyed the walks on the Forestry Commission pamphlet which were strenuous for pensioners like us but attainable.
    Mr Bailey - May 2018
    A superb house, with very welcoming and friendly owners who are on hand if needed but otherwise keep themselves to themselves. Wonderful setting in a stunning part of Arran. Happy days spent on beach below house with children, and then taking in evening view from newly built conservatory. A great base.
    Mr Gell - May 2018
    What a fantastic place. Point house is full of character but with all the thing you need for a great holiday. The kitchen is modern and the raeburn keeps it cosy. All you need to bring is the food. There's no Wi-Fi and an occasional phone signal which was bliss as it meant we truly had time away (and we didn't miss it one bit). There's freeview and a bluebray player but we spent lot's if time sitting in the newly built room at the back with the most fantastic views or in front of a roaring fire playing games and chatting. Theres a BBQ available and seats outside for the sunny afternoons. We felt really at home with the rocky beach out the gate at the bottom of the garden the only thing youll need to do is ensure your well stocked up. Would highly recommend here for a real get away we have come back refreshed and relaxed and planning our return .
    Miss Roulston - September 2017
    The House is in a great position to enjoy the country and sea. Private beach and fantastic views of Holy Island. The House does need some updating down stairs, but we spent our time mostly in the Garden room. Would book again
    Mrs Langley - July 2017
    Point House is a charming old house with all the updates necessary for a comfortable stay. The house sleeps 7, although the one double bed is boxed in, so not as comfortable as the two rooms upstairs which are lovely, one with an en suite , and the other has a private washroom right next to it. The house is full of memorabilia, and has two sun rooms for taking in the view. The property overlooks Holy Isle, and has its own beach. There are walking trails right the front door, and a Viking fort nearby which affords a magnificent view. There is a lovely garden, and several,species of birds inhabit the garden. There are large hares that are seen along the trail. It is perfect for a family, with a well-equipped kitchen for making meals.
    Mr And Mrs Donaldson O'sullivan - May 2017
    We loved our week here. It was clean, comfortable and warm. There was ample space for us all to be together, yet enough rooms to escape each other if needed. The conservatory was a favourite room - we loved watching the red squirrels running along the garden wall. The kitchen was well stocked, the dining room spacious and the lounge comfy. The piano was a great surprise - in good working order with an easy touch and a stack of music in the piano stool to try out. We struggled a little with the storage heating - not being used to it. The downstairs rooms seemed quite cool, but the upstairs bedrooms were almost too hot at times, until we worked out the controls. The welcome was warm and friendly. Thank you. The surrounding scenery was stunning, especially the sunrises over the Holy Isle. We particularly enjoyed the tranquility of the beach - you couldn't hear another soul or any traffic, just the noise of the waves and the seabirds. There were ample walks for the dogs to enjoy nearby too.
    Mrs Hyland - April 2017
    A comfortable old country farmhouse, which was warm and clean. mrs haddow who owns the house was lovely and v helpful. Rayburn and log fire made the place welcoming in November. Stunning views and a secluded beach on the doorstep.
    Mrs Sinclair - November 2016
    Point House is old, higgledy-piggledy and absolutely wonderful for a family holiday. Multiple rooms offer quiet spaces to hide and reflect (or play boardgames), there are walks from the door and a wonderful sense of calm. The kitchen is amazing, the new sun room is spacious with superb views of Holy Isle, the bedrooms and upstairs bathrooms are clean, functional and all you need for a great holiday. The downstairs is filled with timeworn furniture and nick nacks yet these make it a quirky place to stay. It's isolated position (with owners and 2 other rental properties on site) is fantastic and the views (have I mentioned them before?) are amazing. Throwing open all the doors and windows on a sunny day was marvellous. A short stroll to secluded beaches and an iron age fort. Car essential to really see the island and purchase provisions. A fantastic place for a family to get back to basics and enjoy being together, exploring and relaxing.
    Mrs Wing - August 2016
    Four of the family and I once again enjoyed a lovely break at this wonderful old house lovingly modernised by the owners. The Trafalgar Restaurant in Whiting Bay ( 10 mins by car) well worth a visit for dinner and also The Brodick Bar - both serve great food & hospitality. Visits to the cheese & chocolate shops are a must.
    Mr Bain - June 2015
    Point house has uninterrupted views of the sea and Holy island. Wonderful, and very private location. Downstairs bedroom is very small, especially for a double, and is fairly basic. The 3 upstairs bedrooms are all 1st class, and are in the totally renovated part of the property. Spacious living/dining/ areas with lots of original character. Fully equipped and very modern kitchen.
    Mr Wright - May 2015
    Point House is beautifully situated overlooking Holy Isle. Upstairs is particularly good and we enjoyed playing cricket in the garden. The trip to Holy Isle was more expensive than I expected but worthwhile. The bread, oatcakes and flans from Wooleys in both Brodick and Lamlash are excellent.
    Mrs Fuller - July 2014
    Second time we have visited a property at this location. The view, particularly at sunset over Lamlash Bay is superb. Excellent for dog walking. watching the ganets feed over the bay is a real bonus.
    Mr Smith - June 2013
    Parts of the house still need updating
    Mrs Strivens - October 2012
    The owners are very friendly. It is a lovely secluded location with a two minute walk to the beach which was ideal for our kayak. The views of Mullach Mor were amazing and changed every day. The kitchen is very modern and has everything you need. We had a brilliant week and plan to return to Point House.
    Mrs Pemberthy - August 2012
    A wonderful peaceful week in an idyllic location with no traffic & only the sound of birds and surf. The house is fitted out to a very high standard to ensure the maximum comfort. Shops & restaurants within easy reach and private beach and walks complete the package.
    Mr Bain - May 2012
    Upstairs great (4 stars for upstairs), downstairs needs some attention. A lovely place for a family holiday with lovely views. Enjoyed our stay very much. Although it would be better if the open fire was in the lounge with the TV, and unfortunatley the rayburn went out on the Thursday night, so hot water was only by immersion heater.
    Owners Response: "We do apologise for the Rayburn going out. Unfortunately the tank had developed a small leak and we ran down the oil to allow a new tank to be installed this week. The immersion heater however is a very efficient back up if needed with no cost to guests."
