When you stay at Achnacarry Cottage you will never want to return to the hustle and bustle of the mainland ever again. The only traffic delays will be due to a few errant sheep! The views from many of the windows of this early 19th Century semi-detached home reveal magnificent seascapes across to the Kintyre peninsula. Whilst staying on the Isle why not take the short ferry trip from Lochranza to Claonaig and discover a piece of Kintyre to add to your memories

About the local area

One of the most southerly Scottish Isles, Arran encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland but all packaged within an accessible area 19 miles long by 10 miles wide. Your holiday adventure begins on the ferry from Ardrossan with views of Goat Fell, Brodick Castle and the ancient and spiritual Holy Isle. Arran is a fantastic place to see the second largest fish in the world, the basking shark. Frolicking porpoises and seals are frequent visitors too. There are mystical standing stones, a prehistoric burial site, a Viking burial mound and the natural cavern known as King’s Cave which inspired Robert the Bruce. The island has a scattering of pretty villages on Arran’s stunning coastline which are contrasted by a rugged and mountainous interior in the north. This is a natural paradise with sightings of red squirrels, golden eagles, red deer, otters and seals. You can actually join an island safari! If you need inspiration for your picnic, beach barbeque or dinner then Arran offers it all on a plate and in your drinking cup! From jams, relishes, oatcakes, seafood, cheeses and chocolate to whisky and beer you will then have to plan one of many walks on the island! With seven golf courses it is easy to see why this island holds such an appeal for golfers. For adrenaline junkies, Arran offers mountain biking, paragliding, canyoning, sea kayaking, scrambling and more! Achnacarry Cottage can be booked independently or together with Shieling to accommodate up to 12 guests.
