Alt Ardoch is a warm and comfortable island retreat in an elevated position offering spectacular coastal and mountain scenery. A backdrop of pine forests offers numerous trails for walking and cycling and paths link to the main villages of the island. A short distance from the cottage there is a footpath via Cuddy Dook and the public tennis courts to the beach and the village amenities of Lamlash. If you are returning after dark you will need a torch!

The accommodation offers all the comforts of home with a spacious kitchen-diner, a double bedroom* and a bathroom with spa bath and power shower on the ground floor. A comfortable sitting room with flatscreen TV and DVD player is provided on the upper floor to enjoy the lovely sea views towards Holy Isle. There is also a double bedroom with sea views.

Outside there is a pathway leading to seating area with table and chairs with spectacular sea and mountain views. Driveway parking for up to 2 cars.

In addition, there is an attached holiday house for up to 5 guests which is completely separate but may be ideal for 2 families or larger groups to book together (

The village of Lamlash offers a sandy beach and a small pier, which is a hub of boat activity. A small ferry makes regular crossings to the Holy Isle, a unique place for a picnic. There is a good selection of places to eat and drink nearby, including the Glenisle Hotel and The Drift Inn, a seaside inn serving food and drinks all day (including fabulous cup cakes!). Coast Bistro in Whiting Bay is a vibrant spot for a coffee, lunch or evening meal. In Brodick we recommend the 4* Douglas Hotel, the 4* Auchrannie Resort, the Wineport at Cladach and the Heritage Museum cafe with its pretty riverside garden.

* One of the double beds can be converted to a twin - please specify at the time of booking.

The Isle of Arran region

Arran is a beautiful island off the west coast of Scotland with stunning mountain and coastal scenery. There are rugged granite mountain peaks in the north, green rolling hills of the south, pretty villages and stunning ever changing coastal views around every corner.

In contrast to the most of Scotland, Arran is blessed with a mild maritime climate due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream, making it an ideal destination for year round breaks. However, it is also renowned for changeable weather and you may experience four seasons in one day! You are advised to bring comfortable, weatherproof gear and wear layers that you can take off when the sun shines.

Arran is easily accessible from the Scottish mainland, less than an hour from Glasgow, Glasgow and Prestwick International Airports. When you board the ferry, there is a feeling of leaving all the worries behind, as you set off on your Arran adventure.

There is also the option to travel to Kintyre from the north of the island on a short ferry crossing to explore the Argyll or island hop to Islay, Mull and beyond.


With a stunning natural environment, the island is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with outstanding wildlife, flora, fauna, geology, archaeology and history. There are high level mountain walks for the more experienced, miles of forestry trails and the Arran Coastal Way, a continuous 100k route. You can also follow circular paths to discover ancient sites, including the Standing Stones at Machrie Moor and King's Caves near Blackwaterfoot.

Brodick Castle, Gardens & Country Park offers a programme of guided walks in the summer months and there are a number of woodland trails, including The Duchess Bathing Pools and a sculpture trail in Merkland Wood created by a renowned local artist, Tim Pomeroy.

Other activities available and places to visit include:

• 4* hotel leisure facilities open to non-residents include a swimming pool with sauna, steam and foot spa; sports hall, gym and studio, spa and beauty treatments and a children's play barn

• Seven golf courses and an automated golf range

• Pony trekking at Sannox and Shiskine

• Adventure activities - sea kayaking, gorge walking, paragliding, climbing and abseiling, mountain biking

• Boat trips from Lamlash pier including sea kayaking, powerboating and a ferry service to the Holy Isle

• The Isle of Arran Distillery, Lochranza (4* visitor attraction)

• Old Byre Showroom and Cafe Thyme, Machrie

• Arran Art Gallery with an inspiring range of original artwork, limited edition prints, ceramics and glassware together with a pretty courtyard garden

A car is advised for convenience and to travel to other parts of the island. However, there is a regular bus service connecting the villages and an open top bus for scenic trips in the main season.

"Immaculate Cottage in Great Location"

Have just spent an enjoyable new year in Arran, staying at Alt Ardoch Cottage. The cottage is in a wonderful location with views off the Holy Isle. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom spacious with a good shower and jacuzzi bath. The living room and bedrooms are very comfortable. We'd have no hesitation about staying here again.

"Cozy cottage for lovely getaway"

My partner and I stayed in this cottage for a week and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The cottage was well equipped, beautifully decorated and well situated close to the town of Lamlash. The manager, Wendy, exceeded our expectations and ensured that we had a great holiday on Arran. Would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return ourselves.
