    Point House Cottage reviews
    Cottage was clean and homely, and all we needed. We loved the location, being so close to the coast, and enjoyed swimming, paddling and looking for wildlife on a number of days. Whilst you don't get a view from the cottage, the proximity of the coast made up for this. The owners were friendly and helpful and do a grand job of keeping the surrounding land open and accessible to allow the shoreline to be easily accessed, with areas for picnicking, behind. There was a small step at the entrance to a number of the rooms, and i was caught out numerous times, so maybe not ideal for folk not so steady on their feet; otherwise, all was very good. No internet/wifi, and Vodafone mobile reception could only be picked up from the bottom of the garden.
    Mr Hooper - July 2019
    Point House cottage was lovely. Initially it was a little tricky to find but once there it was well worth it. The view from the garden was stunning with a nice walk down to whiting Bay for the dog right on our doorstep. The cottage itself was more than big enough for the 3 of us with two of the bedrooms not being used. The property was in our opinion in need of some general cosmetic tidy up touches but overall we had a lovely time there and would definitely recommend it.
    Mr Gilmour - June 2019
    We spent a wonderful week at point house cottage. The cottage was warm and comfortable especially with the log burner which we used every night and had everything we needed. The grounds are beautiful and you walk from the garden down to the beach. The coastal path to whiting bay was my favourite walk- not so easy going towards Lamlash. Arran is a beautiful island and we drove all round it but we could not have chosen a better place to stay Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and we just loved our week there.
    Mrs Wiles - April 2019
    A warm welcome from the hosts and they also contacted me to support with the problems and live updates to the disrupted ferry service which was extremely helpful. The cottage was warm and cosy on our arrival and suited my parents needs well with easy access to all areas of the cottage. There is limited phone signal and no internet available but that's good when you are looking for a break from the everyday and taking time to spend with others.
    Ms Carvalho - March 2019
    Where do I start?! As you probably know, Arran is truly one of the most beautiful places on this planet. Whatever you're wanting to do outdoors is there. Be it, waterfalls, beaches, ancient forests, awe inspiring monoliths- all stunning examples. Take it as slow and serene as you'd like. Or for the more adventurous, I'd imagine there's plenty to do! Just not garish amusement arcade's or nightclub's! (Plenty of mainland areas for that, If that's your bag!) We stayed the last week in October, and were lucky enough to get full days of beautiful sun, with crisp autumnal vision. (You literally could see for miles!) Point House Cottage is as stunning as the rest of the Island! It is literally a stone's throw from a beautiful, deserted, rocky beach, with amazing views of Holy Island. Perfectly placed to just leave the car there, and wander up or down the coast, or come inland to the most beautiful of forests and waterfall's. It provides all the home comforts that you need, (including a dishwasher that was a truly welcome treat!) The bed's were comfy, it was squeaky clean and even the telly was bigger than all the places we've stayed! There's games and jigsaws provided, and the dining room gave us ample space to enjoy them together. Now to the owners!- You honestly couldn't find two kinder, more accommodating, friendly people anywhere! We were a bit unlucky that my wife suffered a health issue before our holiday, and needed two oxygen bottles to see her through. I won't bore you with the ins and outs, but ultimately where we had hoped her oxygen provider would be able to deliver some, they couldn't. Which would have put our holiday in jeopardy. If the owners hadn't have been so awesome! We spoke to them the week before we were due, (as you can imagine, they are under no obligation to allow two massive bottles of oxygen into their property) and they couldn't have been more helpful! Honestly, I can't say this loud enough! They were even getting in touch with the local hospital to see if they could provide oxygen if required! A massive gesture, way above and beyond anything that we could have hoped for! What could have been a really difficult holiday was made a truly awesome holiday, in a large part, because of the compassion and understanding of two genuinely lovely people. I can't thank them enough for all that they did for us, and their genuine desire for us to enjoy our time there meant that we did! If you've got this far reading this, I applaud your perseverance! There's many more positive things I could say, but to be honest, I'm tired, and I think my comma's are running out! If you're wondering whether or not to book this cottage, do it! You won't be disappointed!
    Mr Tarbatt - October 2018
    Beautiful surroundings and a short, woodland path down to the beach. Thoughtful, helpful hosts. Cottage and furnishings a bit dated but all functional and practical. We were able to plug in our electric car on the first night but used a different point the second time we tried and unfortunately it tripped a switch.
    Mrs Felton - October 2018
    Perfect location, a typical cottage which is what we wanted. Clean - exactly as we had hoped. Great for the dog and a lovely beach.
    Miss Young - September 2018
    We enjoyed our stay. The cottage was spacious and well equipped. It had everything we needed. Lovely garden. Short walk from the garden down a path to the beach. Lovely walk from the garden to Whiting Bay. We even saw a red squirrel on the driveway. The owner was friendly and helpful.
    Dr Greenham - July 2018
    We had a wonderful week at Point Cottage. The cottage was comfortable for the 4 adults and 2 children. The setting is beautiful and peaceful, with views over to Holy Island and the distant sound of the gannets nesting there. We watched their spectacular dives into the sea at the small beach just down from the cottage, where we swam every evening (wetsuits not required!). We spent 2 days on Kildonan beach, only 20 minutes away, visited the fabulous adventure play area at Brodick Castle, walked to Glenashdale Falls and went horse riding at Blackwaterfoot. We were lucky that the weather was good, so we were able to spend a lot of time outdoors. It might have been a bit cramped for us all and our wet weather gear if it had rained. The only reason for a 4* instead of 5* was the lack of wifi or phone signal. The adults were very happy with this, of course, but it was a challenge for our 12 year old, although she soon found that she could walk a little way up the drive where she found a spot with a signal. The owners, who live next door, were lovely and helpful. There are two other holiday properties on the other two sides of the small courtyard. We enjoyed meeting the other visitors, and the youngest niece was delighted to find some young friends to go play and explore with. We hope to return next year.
    Mrs Axford - July 2018
    We had a fantastic stay at Point House Cottage in June. We were blessed with great weather and were able to make full use of the lovely garden which gets the sun all day and into the evening plus the beach overlooking Holy Isle and incredible sunset views over Goatfell. A campfire whilst watching the sunset from the beach is a must. The cottage is a short drive to Whiting Bay and Lamlash and only 10 minutes or so up to Brodick and very accessible to the west of Arran either by the south main road or the minor, more scenic road by Lamlash. It is possible to walk the Whiting Bay along the coastal path. There is a nice bar in Lamlash for a drink and bite to eat overlooking the bay if you wish to venture out. The cottage itself has a homely feel to it, is very clean with good comfy beds, all the kitchen and catering/washing facilities you would need plus good showers and plenty of hot water. I would return without doubt.
    Mr Taylor - June 2018
    The Point House Cottages are a great place to spend a weekend or a vacation with your partner or family and to take time off from busy daily routine. The hosts are amazing and supportive in an regard. A wondeful option to get a real Scotland experience.
    Mr Däbritz - February 2018
    We were greeted by a very strong smell of dampness on entering this cottage. The property was very cold but the owner had only put on one bar of an electric fire to greet us. She said the weather had turned cold overnight so the night storage heaters had not been used the day before we arrived. The bathrooms are very dated and spartan with black mould present in a number of places together with rusted heated towel rails. A broken bracket on the shower rail had been "repaired " for a second time with a bootlace. An electric fire, the dishwasher, microwave and kitchen scales did not work. The windows to the rear of the property are single glazed and do not open due to a build up of paint. The night storage heaters are old and difficult to adjust. Privacy was hard to achieve as there are no curtains at the front vestibule, in the kitchen or the bathroom. Although the property is single storey, there are small steps between various rooms which we found hazardous. The entrance to the master bedroom is very narrow and can only be negotiated by turning slightly sideways as you pass through. There were some large cobwebs. There is no internet availability. On the positive side, the beds were comfortable and cosy once the electric blankets had been utilised. It is difficult to reconcile previous reviews with our experience but we can only comment on what we found. This is the worst cottage we have ever stayed in during 40 years of self catering.
    Owners Response: "RESPONSE FROM COTTAGES & CASTLES : Many thanks for taking the time to send us your review. I am sorry that you had these issues however I am pleased that the owner attended to you during your stay and recognised the points raised by giving you your refund. As far as the house itself is concerned I believe that our write-up and especially the images represent this cottage well and indeed show the small steps your mention. The owners have enjoyed letting their cottage for 40 years and indeed have had very many satisfied guests during that time. Thank you again"
    Mr Andrews - September 2017
    We absolutely loved the cottage and the location. The cottage is very comfortable with all your needs met fully. A very short walk takes shore path which is really lovely. We hope to be back in the not too distant future.
    Mr Clark - April 2017
    Beautiful secluded spot but only twenty minutes walk along a great costal path to Whiting Bay. We enjoyed having tea in Bay Stores, where we also did our shopping. The owners were wonderfully friendly and helpful, even giving us lifts to Brodick. I'd love to go back.
    Dr Aldridge - January 2017
    We had a fantastic week at Point House Cottage . The weather was grand and the grounds , path to the beach and shore area were fantastic . The cottage was well equipped and comfortable , location out of this world . We have been to Arran several times and this was our favourite cottage by far , hopefully we will be able to go back next year . We had a trip to Holy Island which was beautiful , a swim at Auchrannie and a lovely meal at the Glenisle Hotel in Lamlash. Also lots of lovely walks , football and seal spotting on Kildonan beach . Can't wait for our next trip to Arran .
    Mrs Fulton - October 2016
    Cottage was great. Good location. Comfortable and little to fault, if a bit spartan.
    Dr Sentance - June 2016
    Online photos of Point House Cottage are spot on. Gorgeous setting. Good views of The Holy Isle - which, unfortunately, we were unable to visit this time. We know from past experience that a visit to the Isle is wonderful. The tranquility of the place seeps into you and gives everlasting memories of that feeling. The cottage was perfect for us. No pretentiousness but comfortable, clean and obvious regular maintenance and upgrading is done. The advantages of two bathroom/shower rooms is of great benefit when more than a couple are in the cottage. Kitchen was excellent, with everything necessary, and more, if you intend cooking every day - which we didn't! Owners are lovely - and on site. Not at all intrusive but there if need be. Thank you Margaret and Ron.
    Mrs Baker - April 2016
    The Cottage was very comfortable with good facilities. Lovely position and neighbours most helpful. one thing which would be helpful is a book containing information about the house eg.heating instructions.
    Mr Simms - April 2016
    This was our first visit to Arran and we were very pleased with Point House Cottage, which was an ideal base for our walking holiday. The sheltered position on the east coast was certainly an advantage during our stay as we had some very wild stormy weather. There are lovely walks straight from the house around the immediate locality. Cottage was well equipped for our needs, cosy and comfortable. We liked all the historic prints and photographs which gave a fascinating background to the history of the immediate areaThere isn't any WI FI but these seems to be an Arran wide thing, great if you want to escape but of course finding out about anything locally becomes much more tricky if you have no phone or wi fi reception, for instance booking a table at a restaurant needs to be done in person. It was a shame that so much of the information about the island was available online but inaccessible, perhaps this is something the tourist info place should look at and may be do more printed information for wi fi free cottages.
    Mrs Price - November 2015
    We enjoyed our stay at Point House Cottage. There was everything one could need in the cottage. The garden and the walks were beautiful and absolutely perfect for our Cocker spaniel. The island is lovely and the weather was perfect during our stay
    Mrs Corran - June 2015
    We have now been to Point House Cottage for three holidays and love it! The location is spectacular - right by the beach and off the beaten track. There are great views across to Holy Isle and walks around the coast direct from the cottage. The owners were extremely helpful, the cottage is homely and the wood burning stove is great.
    Mrs Hollow - April 2015
    Point House Cottage was beautifully situated near the sea with fabulous views and excellent walks both near the house and in other areas of the island. The cottage was equipped to a high standard and was extremely comfortable. The owner, Margaret was so helpful and needs special praise for the beautiful gardens she and her husband tend with such care. We were very fortunate to have lovely weather and could enjoy the many walks throughout the island, especially enjoyed by our border collie! We enjoyed some excellent evening meals in the nearby Lamlash Bay - The Glenisle Hotel and Lamlash Bay Hotel, excellent service and quality food. Arran is a beautiful island which offers lots of things to do, walking, beaches, wildlife to name a few, we had a relaxing week and will be sure to return.
    Mrs Feeney - October 2014
    We stayed here for a week in late July/ early august and just loved it! I have been coming to Arran for many years and this is the nicest location I have found since childhood stays at Strathwhillan in Brodick. It is quite a drive from the main road down to the cottage itself, but well worth it to be so close to the shore. The cottage itself is a bit like a Tardis inside. The living room is small (but cosy!) ...but the bedrooms are a great size, particularly the en-suite room. It suited us as two couples perfectly, and when my teenage son then joined us later in the week, the separate bunk room was perfect for him. The owners, Margaret and her husband, were welcoming but inobtrusive at the same time - there if you needed anything at all and kindly took in my washing in when we had gone out for the day and it rained heavily. It's a short walk down to the beach which was deserted while we were there. We spent one lovely evening just sitting there, looking over to the Holy Isle and listening to the seabirds as darkness fell, and it was just beautiful (apart from the midgies!) We visited the Holy Isle ( I had never actually got around to this before in all the years I've been to Arran) and it is just the most stunning, tranquil place with amazing views. An absolute must to visit! I could go on and on...but it genuinely was one of my best visits to Arran ever. I have a picture of the cottage and the view of the Holy Isle as my cover photo on Facebook and it brings a smile to my face every time I see it. We will definitely be back now that we have found this great location on the most beautiful island...EVER! Oh...and phone/internet signal virtually non existent, which was an absolute bonus as far as I'm concerned (although my son didn't agree). It really felt like you could get away from it all. GREAT!
    Mrs Forbes - July 2014
    This was our third visit to this totally charming cottage and idyllic location and I'm sure it won't be our last! Everything we could wish for.
    Mr Mclelland - June 2014
    We came back to this cottage after a ten year gap and loved it. The location is amazing with an almost private beach looking out towards Holy Isle and seals on the rocks. The cottage was warm and cosy. We rented Point House as well for a big family gathering. The Haddows were very welcoming and helpful. There's lots to do on Arran - we went out for a meal at the Glen Isle hotel in Lamlash (very nice), visited Holy Isle, climbed Goat Fell, walked to Glenashdale Falls, went to King's caves and visited Brodick Castle.
    Mrs Hollow - April 2014
    The cottage was in a fantastic location and the owners were excellent and very friendly, the cottage was spotlessly clean warm and comfortable. For anyone who likes the oldy worldy type break you could`nt pick a better cottage. We would really consider another break in this cottage. The best restaurant that we tried had to be the Coast in Whiting bay the owner was fantastic and the rib eye steak is to die for. The best two places that we tried for lunch was the coffee pot in Whiting bay and the cafe in the aromatics outlet in Brodick. The walks were fantastic and the scenery breathtaking, we had a book in the cottage called 44 walks in Arran this book is a must as it tells you the distance of the walk and the time it will take you to accomplish it, with some good maps in it as well.
    Mrs Burtonwood - March 2014
    We had a wonderful stay at point house cottage the setting was beautiful, on Kings point near the sea, you had a great view of the sea & the Holy island, and there was nice walk down to the point to see the seals. Margaret the owner was at the cottage to meet us on arrival the first night and had a lovely wood stove fire burning in the sitting room for us, she was very welcoming and gave us the grand tour of the cottage. Sitting room, 2 large bedrooms with double beds (one with en suite) a kids room with bunk beds, a second bath room with bath & shower, dinning room & a very well equipped kitchen with all mod cons, cooker, fridge freezer, microwave (to name but a few) also a dishwasher a real treat for us as we do not have one! there where also lots of crockery & utensils, we never went short of anything while cooking and preparing meals.There where also 3 sky lights in the property and this gave a great veiw of the sky when waking in the morning and also at night when the stars were out. Margaret also told us what there was to do on the island, such a the trips to holy island, the different walks and trails including the one to take in the glenashdale falls & the walk up Goat Fell, this had been one of our main reason for coming and we did climb it and the veiw from the top was breath taking as was the peak at the giants grave yard on our walk to take in the water falls at glenashdale. Margaret also made sure we had enough logs for the fire every night and even offered to get it going for us on the 2nd evening, we did want a go ourselves and persevered and got it going, it was a nice warm sitting room at night and was the perfect place to site with your feet up and a glass of wine after a day out hill walking. This was our first trip to Arran and will definitely not be our last and I would certainly look to go back to point house cottage. We could not have asked for a better short break also town of Brodick only 20minute drive away where you could get the shops & bank if required. Also there was one especially clear night and due to almost no light pollution the thousand upon thousands of stars you could see was simply unbelievable we had never seen anything like it. We certainly would reccomend the Island of Arran and point house cottage to any and everyone it was great from start to finish, a nice home from home feeling, Margaret made us feel welcome the whole time, we did not want to leave, even the experience of the ferry crossing was great.
    Miss Smith - February 2014
    This was a return visit to Point House Cottage for us and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable, warm and well equipped. The situation cannot be bettered, standing in its own grounds and with immediate access to the coastal path. We - and our dog, who just adores chasing the rabbits in the garden - cannot recommend it highly enough. For those who enjoy eating out, the Glenisle Hotel in Lamlash and Coast in Whiting Bay both, in very different ways, provide excellent eating.
    Ms Kelly - October 2013
    This was a wonderful find! The grounds are sensational and our two collies thought they had landed in Paradise. The owners are delightful and extremely friendly and helpful. Local places to eat were excellent, but especially recommend the Coffee Pot at Whiting Bay - gorgeous coffee and home baking and very tasty soup.
    Ms Shedden - September 2013
    Point house Cottage is situated in a beautiful location - incredibly quiet and very peaceful but also close to Whiting Bay, the nearest town. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean well kitted out and very comfortable. There are two adjoining cottages for rent and the owner`s house but acres and acres of space, would be a fantastic location for active children and was great for my dog.
    Ms Mackinnon - June 2013
    Point house cottage sits at the point of Kings Cross oposite Holy Island. A truly peaceful location with fantastic views from the garden made even more magical with the snow. Autumn colours on the island were terrific to see. Well equiped Kitchen which was good because once you returned in the evening a home cooked meal followed by a dram in front of the extremely efficent log stove was all you wanted to do. Rooms were clean albeit basically furnished. Living room was small but big enough for up to 5 people and was brilliant for roasting infront of thr stove on the cold autum evenings. The external lights added a real feel of cosiness. The owners were friendly and helpful and provided an endless supply of logs for the stove. Only negative, the bed was uncomfortable in the main bedroom. (a little too hard). Also some information abou the area would have been useful to have at hand in the cottage. A trip over the Ross and the String Road a must on a fine day. Lochranza , Corrie and Sannox prvide excelllent views and Seal watching. Gledonnin and the southern coast wild and exciting. The Tea Room at Lamlash (Made in Arran) simple but excellent value. Lochranza Hotel provided a simple but good value for money lunch. we were the only people there. Nice walks to Whiting Bay from the cottage which our Spaniel loved. The history of the cottage includes being used by the Navy during WW2, a very emotional feel as our father in law (91) served in the Navy during the war and was stationed for some months in the bay between point cottage and Holy Island. We did not know this at the time of booking making it even more special when we arrived and he walked down to the garden and loooked over the bay. We hope to return again in warmer times and do more walking
    Mr Thompson - October 2012
    Point house cottage is in a lovely location. Very private with a 2 minute walk to the shore and a beautiful view north to the mountains. We had a dog with us and it was perfect for walks off the lead all around the area. Regarding the property itself, it was cosy with ample space for my wife and I, our 4 year old son and the dog. We didn't use the bunk room at all. It was well appointed although could benefit from some redecoration. A couple of not-too-serious issues which could be easily remedied: No blind on the roof-light in the master bedroom (this would be a problem in summer although we were there in October) and the weather bar on the front door scraped against the floor tiles making an ear-splitting screech every time you opened or closed the door. However, overall very good.
    Mr Sarjeant - October 2012
    Very comfortable cottage, lovely garden, wonderful walks right on the doorstep. For cooks, perhaps the best equipped kitchen of any cottage we have previously stayed in. Our dog was in heaven - tho' the local rabbit population might feel otherwise - and we throroughly enjoyed our stay. If you are up for a nice walk, a meal at Coast in Whiting Bay is a very nice way to reward yourself before walking back. Also, the General Store in Whiting Bay is well stocked and the owner is pleasant and very helpful.

    The cottage is in a good area and is near to the sea, great for pets and children as there is no traffic to worry about. The cottages are well placed for more than one family to have a holiday together as they are adjoining and have gardens for the pets and children to play in. Overall a very spacious and clean cottage, however it is in need of an update especially in the lounge. But this would not deter us from returning to a nice cottage in a beautiful loacation.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your feedback. The lounge is due for re-decoration this coming winter as rooms are done on a rotational basis."
