Situated on the Isle of Arran, Arran Farmhouse is a beautifully restored self catering holiday house in an outstanding location on the West coast of the island on the side of a heathery hill overlooking the Kilbrannan Sound with fabulous views across the sea to Kintyre. Combining modern amenities with a remote location, our fantastically renovated self-catered farmhouse has turned a traditional Scottish croft into a contemporary, comfortable and peaceful haven.
Often referred to as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, the Isle of Arran within a short compass captures many aspects of the beauty of Scotland as a whole, from towering granite peaks inviting hill walkers and climbers to peaceful sandy bays overlooked by palm trees growing in the warm climate of The Gulf Stream.
We stayed at the property for 3 nights over a September weekend. My husband, daughter and I were visiting from the States with my sister and family who are from Edinburgh and booked the property for a long weekend. It was located in a gorgeous setting and the atmosphere was relaxing, magical and private. We made great memories and truly enjoyed the unique opportunity to see a more remote area of Scotland. The play was also wonderful for the kids!
I have just returned from a marvellous holiday in Banlicken. There were 3 families of four and a spaniel. The house was very remote, well equipped and just what we were looking for. There were plenty of games for the evening. The route to the house was fun but I am glad we arrived in the light. The ramble to the beach down the shortest route was slippy in the rain and sturdy boots were required. Sausages on an open fire were the reward. What more could you want!! Seals and porpoise, we saw them too. Great week, great island, fantastic property with lots of helpful information
