The Isle of Arran region

The Isle of Arran is known a Scotland in Miniture for very good reason. Geologically it displays all the landscapes you may experience throughout Scotland. To the north of Arran are the rugged mountains you may see in the Scottish Highlands and to the south of Arran is the type of rolling countryside reminiscent of the Scottish Borders. Add to this the wonderful beaches, some of them deserted, the magnificent views, seven golf courses, Taste of Arran for amazing local food producers (Arran Cheese was voted best cheddar in the world) Arran Brewery and Arran Distillery are worth a visit and so much more. It is no wonder that Scotland was ranked 3rd by Lonely Planet as one of the best places in the world to visit Arran is Scotland's top holiday destination with something for everyone. Come and join us for a memorable holiday- only one hour from mainland Scotland aboard a very comfortable Cal Mac ferry


There is so much to do on the Isle of Arran. Relax on our decking, drinking in the view all day or after an active day. Play golf on any of the seven golf courses. Walk any of the range of walks available and signposted or climb the ancient rocks giving challenging climbs for those interested in a climbing holiday. Capture the amazing views and wildlife with your camera. Visit Arran Brewery or Arran Distillery and get a wee sample. Something for everyone is available on Arran from the Playbarn for children at Auchrannie to paragliding for the more adventurous, spa treatments, great places to eat and drink. Arran has so much to offer everyone. Why wait, come and see for yourself

"Home from home"

Had a very relaxing week staying in Dean Lodge . Margaret the owner has thought of everything . A welcome tray with local produce plus a pint of milk in the fridge . Picnic hamper , towels for the bea… More

Thank you, we try to provide everything you need in a "home from home" so you can just bring yourself and what you need and have a relaxing time enjoying the view from the decking or inside the house. It can be so annoying to arrive in a self catering cottage and then find you have to go and buy such mundane things as bin bags or dishwasher tablets.We do that for you so you can make the most of your visit.

"beautiful and serene location with wonderful views of Lamlash Bay"

The flat was very tidy and clean and in the perfect location. The owners were so welcoming, helpful, and accessible. They had added many touches to make the home inviting and comfortable. Everything was in perfect working order, including the lovely shower, always with plenty of hot water. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes and cookery, and having the microwave was a big plus.
It was a short walk to a local bus stop, and by car was only minutes from the ferry terminal and market in Brodick. The description and pictures are a true reflection of this beautiful property, I couldn't have asked for more!

Thank you so much, your review is much appreciated. We are glad you, as welll as many others, felt at home as that is what we have tried to achieve. We want people to know they are coming on holiday to a place they can relax in peace and comfort and not have to bother about having to bring mundane things like washing up liquid or dishwasher tablets. Just bring yourself and what you need personally.We loved your comments about the photos as it is sometimes difficult to capture the true beauty and feeling of a place in a photograph

Thank you. We are happy to provide a cot and/or toddler bed and high chair free of charge. It is so lovely when a family has a superb time together. It was also such a wee adventure for your toddler to be able to go outside himself onto the gated decking - a giant outside playpen!

Thank you for your review. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again.
