Isle of Arran
Arran is a 20 mile long enchanting and peaceful island in the middle of the Firth of Clyde, popular with tourists who enjoy its fine beaches, walking, cycling, climbing, golf and geology. It is reached by a short ferry ride from Ardrossan on the Ayrshire coast, so is also one of the most accessible of Scottish islands.

Exploring the Island
Arran is mountainous in the northern half and has a more gentle landscape in the southern part, the area where most of the population (and tourists) live.
A single, very scenic road, ideal for cycling, runs round the coast of the island, through several pretty villages. One further road takes you across the island's centre to Blackwaterfoot (with golf course and a glorious beach) and Machrie, which has a further golf course and interesting stone circles. Lovely Glen Rosa is only one of several glens offering wonderful walking, while the energetic can tackle Goat Fell, the peak which dominates the island.
Places to Visit
The 'capital' Brodick is the only town of any size and is the main tourist draw. The main attractions in the Brodick area are the Arran Heritage Museum and the Arran Visitor Centre (at Home Farm) where you can watch the Arran cheeses being made and try soap-making.
Brodick Castle is the 19th century former seat of the Dukes of Hamilton situated north of the town. Its country park includes a walled garden, a nature centre and varied walks. Brodick also hosts a four-day annual folk festival in early June.
The main attraction near Lamlash (4 miles south of Brodick) is Holy Island where Buddhist monks have established the Samye Ling Tibetan Centre and retreat - day visitors are also welcomed. The King's cave at Blackwaterfoot is one of many caves where Robert the Bruce was said to have encountered his famous spider and there are several Bronze Age sites and stone circles near the town. There are also ruins of a 13th century castle at Lochranza in the north of the island.

|22-Mar-2017||Ornsay House ET1 (overall)||I booked on line. Everything happened as it should except that when asking for a list of names in my party I didn't include mine as it was already on the booking application. This caused a problem. Easily resolved by talking to Unique Cottages. They were polite and helpful.|

|18-Mar-2017||Inchrye Lodge, Lindores Loch AC9 (overall)||We were not disappointed with anything from our week at the cottage. It was a delight to stay in the cottage and to explore the surroundings.|
|18-Mar-2017||Burnside House EX9 (overall)||Burnside house is a nice cottage in a nice location. The house is clean,tidy and very welcoming,alot of peace and quiet.
The cottage is tucked away in a kind of culture de sac of two houses behind Sonachan house so one has to drive round the house and private drive to get to Burnside cottage so it's not truly isolated from other houses.
However the location is great and fortunately the owner of Sonachan House Michelle is fantastic ,and so being close to Sonachan house is very relaxing and Michelle is very helpful regarding any problem we had. Would stay again definitely and would recommend it.
One thing that might be good for future is if they would put some steps that lead from Burnside to the small quiet road outside so one can walk directly onto the road without having to go beside Sonachan House.If they put steps on the wall then that would be fantastic I think.
