Description

The Granary is a lovely former granary, located on a working farm on the Isle of Arran and boasts stunning views over the sea and beyond to the lonely isle of Ailsa Craig. On wet weather days these amazing views can still be enjoyed from the large, bright yet cosy conservatory. The sumptuous scenic delights can also be experienced from the delightful window balcony of the master bedroom where guests can unwind watching the ever changing light across the water. From the cottage a farm track leads to a sandy and secluded beach, which was featured in the film ’ The Governess’ starring Minnie Driver.

About the local area

In addition to being Scotland’s second largest Island, the contrasting landscape found on the Isle of Arran has given rise to its nickname as ’Scotland in miniature’. And it is easy to see why. From the rugged mountains in the north to the gentle rolling countryside of the south, the island is a mirror image of the Scottish landscape. Walkers of all abilities will enjoy the network of trails crisis crossing the island and offering a terrific range of walks from coast to forest trails and ridge scrambling. Goatfell is the highest point at just under 3000 feet and well worth the effort for the view across the Clyde to Cumbrae, Great Cumbrae and Bute. Arran is also a haven for spotting wildlife and even while waiting for the ferry to arrive keen eyed visitors may catch a glimpse of a porpoise or dolphin. Deer are common sight particularly over the moorlands and the lucky few may get to see a golden eagle soaring overhead. Arran can be an addictive holiday destination with visitors returning time after time. One of its beat features is its size and the ease of getting around. It is a dream location for cyclists. The circumnavigation of the island is a classic road trip and can be achieved in a day. For golfers there are seven courses spread around the island and Shiskine Links is named amongst the best 100 in Britain. For foodies the Taste of Arran network offers an impressive range from seasonal produce and locally reared beef and lamb to oatcakes and preserves to locally caught langoustines. From Lamlash a short ferry trip can be taken over to Holy Isle with its long spiritual history stretching back to the 6th century. It also has an ancient healing spring. When approaching Arran it is possible to catch a tantalising glimpse of Brodick Castle at the foot of the mountains. This is the only island country park in Britain and is a great day out. Visitors will enjoy its superb display of rhododenron, the castle’s fabulous collection of valuable artifacts and over ten miles of way marked trails.
