Your holiday adventure begins on the ferry from Ardrossan with views of Goat Fell, Brodick Castle and the ancient and spiritual Holy Isle.

    Nice old cottage with lovely views and beautiful sunsets (especially from the lovely jacuzzi) Lovely sitting room and comfy beds. One or two appliances need attention and some garden furniture would have been nice. The island is beautiful and the location of the cottage is great. Appreciated the owner contacting me beforehand to give me info on nice restaurants and places of interest.

    Nice cottage for two couples, but only parking for one car. However, the owner easily sorted this out for us with no trouble. The spa bath was great, but once you had it filled there was no other hot water and the tub had no heating on it (unless we missed it some how), we were able to override the hot water once we realised so others could take a shower. The rooms and property were very clean and comfortable, kitchen was great but lacking some basic utensils. We had a problem with the dishwasher and reported to the owners, it was no trouble but they got an engineer out straight away. This property is fantastic for sunsets and the views. This was the first time we had been to Arran and although they say it is a mini Scotland, it was very enjoyable, lots of things to see and do, the little cart tracks down to the beaches were fantastic (we have a 4x4 so no issues for us), Lots of little cafes and pubs (one we found was all to do with cycling so that kept dad happy for hours). We are very glad we went there and would not rule out a return sometime, but then we do like to travel to different places. Would definitely recommend for others seeking a quite place to stay, yet not to far from amenities.

    Wonderful views over the fields and to the sea. Very relaxing and well located to get to places of interest. Being on the west it stays lighter until later and makes for a good walk along the local beach - where seals can be seen. We also saw an otter there. The only negative - my wife missed having wifi access.
