We spent 2 weeks at alt ardoch with our 2 children aged 11 and 7. They had a ball. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. Kitchen was very new, with plenty of utensils and room to have a family meal. Having children we used pretty much everything and all worked well. Living room was comfortable but small, though the views more than made up for that. Outside space was immaculate, with amazing views of the bay. Lovely for a bottle of wine in the evening but not ideal for children with footballs! The cottage is around a 20 minute walk from lamlash on a busy road so a car is helpful if you have young children. There are plenty of good places to eat in lamlash so it is worth the walk and it gives you the excuse to have pudding. Overall a lovely cottage and one we will go back to.

We have rented this property four years in a row now.We really appreciate the location, and view, which must rate as one of the best on the isle of Arran. Facilities are very good also. Well appointed accommodation and very well equipped modern kitchen facilities. Very good value for money. We highly recommend it.

“Fantastic place to stay”

As regular 'self-catering holiday makers', this was probably the best accommodation we've ever stayed in. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The furnishings and household goods were all of a high standard and we felt that we had all the comforts of home that we required for our holiday. The location is ideal with beautiful views and is a great base for a holiday in Arran. In addition, there is access to a pleasant and well-cared for garden. The staff of the company we booked through and the owner of the cottage were very helpful and welcoming. We would definitely like to come back here.

“Beautiful cottage with fantastic views. A great base to explore Arran!”

A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location with stunning views of Holy Island and over Lamlash Bay towards Goatfell. Traditional on the outside and very modern on the inside we found the cottage to be very clean and comfortable and really enjoyed our stay. A great base for a couple or family to explore the Island of Arran with lots of excellent walks, a cycle track through the woods behind the cottage and beaches close by. Also close to several shops and good hotels and restaurants in Lamlash and Whiting Bay. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay within easy reach of Arran's many attractions.
