This beautiful historic property has been tastefully refurbished for couples/families looking for a rural retreat where they can appreciate and explore the stunning scenery that Arran has to offer.

This unique, 19th-century courtyard bothy is situated on the west coast of Arran less than a mile from Machrie Bay with its long, sandy beach, standing stones, tearoom and golf course. You can explore the area on foot or by bicycle; Arran also has lots of other activities on offer too. There is so much to see and do on the island whether it’s climbing its highest peak, Goatfell, tasting the local produce, visiting historic buildings or spotting the rich and varied wildlife. After a busy day exploring, you’ll be keen to get back and relax in front of the open fire or enjoy a spot of stargazing.

After ascending the steep stone staircase to the front door, you enter into an open-plan lounge/diner. The light pouring through the Velux windows bounces of the light walls, creating a bright and airy feel. Perfectly placed on either side of the open fire, you will be keen to sink into the sofas of an evening. There is dining furniture in the corner of the spacious living area. Adjacent to this room is the galley kitchen which, although compact, feels light because of the white walls and units. It is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up some treats. With all the accommodation on the first floor, you next arrive at the bedrooms. There are two zip-and-link super-king rooms which can be made up as twins on request. Both rooms have restricted height in places, due to the slanted ceilings, but feel cosy and calm. Completing the accommodation is a bathroom with separate bath and walk-in shower.

Outside, guests are welcome to wander around the estate and explore the many paths. There is also some garden furniture for a spot of al fresco dining.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
