Location description from owner

The Scotland 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 Argyll or island hop to Islay, Mull and beyond.

Whiting Bay

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 & 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 Blackwaterfoot

• 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 village of Whiting Bay has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and is self-contained with a useful range of small independent shops and services for easy living. Coast is a popular vibrant spot for morning coffee and also offers a lunch and dinner menu and take-away. The nearby Eden Lodge Hotel also serves drinks and food. For family entertainment, the Village Hall plays host to an eclectic range of local bands, visiting musicians and ceilidhs.

There are some good quality restaurants nearby and we recommend the Glenisle Hotel, the Drift Inn, the Lamlash Bay Hotel in Lamlash and Coast Bistro in Whiting Bay - all within easy reach. In Brodick we would recommend the 4* Douglas Hotel and the 4* Auchrannie Resort, both open all day for drinks, snacks and meals and the Heritage Museum cafe has a lovely riverside garden with picnic tables for lunch and afternoon tea.

The local stores and a farm shop are within 1 mile of the house, where you can stock up on everyday essentials. The main village of Brodick offers a larger supermarket and there are excellent leisure and dining amenities.

The island has some award-winning places to visit including Brodick Castle, Country park and Gardens, Cladach Visitor Centre with the Island Cheese Shop, Creelers and Arran Aromatics, the Isle of Arran Distillery; and many craft and unique places to shop. Arran Art Gallery in Whiting Bay offers an inspiring range of original artwork, limited edition prints, ceramics and glassware together with a pretty courtyard garden.

If you are looking for an active break, there are numerous footpaths and cycle routes around the island, with circular walks to waterfalls and ancient sites for all the family, challenging ridge walks and climbs for the more experienced and easy coastal routes. You can try a new activity with experienced local guides, from sea kayaking to paragliding or improve your skills on a mountain bike session. And for the golfers - there are seven courses around the island open to non-members. The nearest are Lamlash and Whiting Bay, open all year round and both offer friendly facilities.

A car is advised to travel to other parts of the island, but it is not essential as there is a regular bus service connecting the villages and an open top bus for scenic trips in the main season.
