We spent three nights in this charming house. Our room was lovely decorated and very cosy, just as the whole house. Our hosts were great and gave us a warm welcome. The breakfast was pretty good and a lot as well. We really enjoyed our time there and felt so comfortable.

My friend and I messed up our Lochranza hostel booking but managed to find this place - and so glad we did! We had a lovely welcome from Julie who knew who was expected, and who showed us around when we checked in on arrival at 12pm. The twin room was cosy and well presented, we had a sea view...

Just back from a 3 night stay here, opted for an upstairs ensuite which had a great view. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast selection was excellent - cereals, muesli, jams and fruit, which you can choose from before ordering your cooked breakfast. Very interesting golf and music memorabilia in the dining area as well. Can't...

Due to my close locality to the beautiful Isle of Arran, which I see every morning, I frequently visit the island for a couple of days as often as possible. I have stayed in many guest houses around the island and there are a lot of very good ones but I have no hesitation in stating that Viewbank Guest House...

Just what one would want from a B and B, pleasant hosts, comfy bed, good location and excellent breakfast. We did not have a sea view but that did not detract from the stay in any way, in fact in the early morning the sea view was quite blinding with the sun rise. A walk back from the town up...

A fabulous B&B in Whiting Bay, Arran, with lovely clean/comfortable rooms. Owners Julie and Mal were very helpful, friendly and hospitable. The breakfasts are amazing with delicious porridge made the true Scottish way. Would definitely stay again and recommend Viewbank to anyone visiting Arran.
