Part of the renovated Coach House. An idyllic spot, surrounded by fields and woodland. Located off the Castle driveway, it is not far from the beach, Village, Castle, Seafood Cabin or Smokehouse. The properties are newly furnished with modern interiors and double-glazing. Very convenient for the Claonaig ferry to Arran (7min drive) and Kennacraig ferry terminal (20min drive).
The Old Pumphouse is a ground floor apartment and comprises two bedrooms; king with en-suite bathroom, and twin opposite second bathroom. It has a large kitchen, sitting room and separate dining room. Both dining room and sitting room have patio doors, which open up the property, bringing the outside in when the weather permits.
Skipness is a small village on the eastern shore of the Kintyre peninsula, looking across the Kilbrannan Sound towards Arran. There are also magnificent views to Cowalside, Bute and the Ayrshire coast. It is a quiet haven, where the main activities are farming, forestry, tourism, fishing and conservation. The Village Hall holds regular Ceilidhs and dances during the year for locals and holiday-makers alike. Skipness Point marks the beginning of Loch Fyne and evidence can still be seen of the moorings where ships of long ago were once fastened. The very word Skipness, which in the ancient Nordic tongue means “Point of the Ships”, conjures up pictures of the Vikings who dominated the Highlands and Islands for so long. To secure the peace, the building of the first Skipness Castle began in the 13th century and the ruined walls and massive tower house still guard the shore. It ts one of the earliest standing castle buildings in Scotland. The ruins of the medieval Kilbrannan Chapel lie just a little further, towards The Point.

  • Chris and Stuart were both incredible - following New Year’s celebrations, we, a family of nine adults and two children (one newborn), found ourselves stranded on Arran due to bad weather. Not only were we able to book at incredibly short notice, but Chris and Stuart also provided us with bread, milk and snacks, along with great hospitality and lots of advice on which ferry to take the next morning.

  • You don't rent a room in someone's private house. It's more like a youth hostel or an original Bed&Breakfast. The staff is warm and courteous and the breakfast is varied and you can make some sandwiches for lunch.

    Lars2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful two nights at the Lochranza Centre. The hosts were incredibly lovely, with lots of helpful local tips and they accommodated me even though I’d made a bit of a scheduling error. Would recommend this place to anyone exploring north Arran.

    Kristina2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a blast- it has the flavor of summer camp, but accommodating to adults. We loved exploring the Geopark and the breakfast was great. There is a nice community lounge to relax in. The rooms were simple, but clean and sufficient with comfortable beds. It’s a great launch spot for exploring Lochranza.

    Michele2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and great hosts. The kitchen area has a toaster, kettle and microwave so you can make simple meals. The included breakfast catered well to vegans.

  • Lovely comfortable, clean cabin. Very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Lovey location and views. Road to the cabin a bit difficult to drive down, so need to be cautious tackling it. Would recommend this accommodation, we had a very pleasant stay here.

    Stephen2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay if you want peace and quiet. Scenery amazing no matter what the weather.

    Margaret2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great wee place to stay in Lochranza, ideal location for visiting the distillery

    Sarah2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Joanna's place was just the off-the-beaten-path stay we were looking for. The building is close to their home but we had plenty of privacy. Lochranza is lovely and you can walk to local distillery! We had a delicious lunch there on our first day. The kitchen was well equipped, the bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. We would certainly stay here again.

    Sarah2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were amazing. During our stay there was a storm which disrupted all of the ferries, meaning we were stuck here for several extra days. Joanna and Andy were really helpful in keeping us updated with the weather and ferry journeys, and making us feel as at home and comfortable as they could. The cabin itself is very warm and cosy and would definitely recommend to others. Thoughtful additions were also in the cabin upon our arrival such as milk, cereal, a small loaf of bread, butter as well as a few other ingredients which I assume have been left behind by other guests. The cabin has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay on Arran. One thing to be aware of is the severity of the driveway. We attempted it in a Corsa and it was painful. Don’t attempt to drive up unless you have a 4x4 or other high clearance car. However, they offer a very helpful service and will pick you up and drop you off at the bottom of the lane, just message them ahead of arrival to give them a chance to get down☺️ 5⭐️ Accommodation Would definitely come back again!

    Thomas2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Communication with Joanna was great. I loved every bit of my stay in the cabin and Lochranza thanks to Joanna's and local people's hospitality. The view from the cabin is stunning. Will definitely recommend this place!

    Blanca2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ilse of Arran is a lovely place to visit, and the accommodation is an ideal location for exploring the island. Jo can recommend some great walks and places to visit. We did a walk round the coast line starting from the accommodation, which we would definitely recommend. Rupert my dog was made to feel as welcome as we did. Overall felt like a home from home.

    Viki2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Just back from a lovely weekend in Arran, Jo's place is cosy, warm and kitted out with everything you would need. Fantastic hospitality and a great location (on the route of some great walks). Great value too. Recommended.

    Tony2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Jane's place. Once up the stairs and into the apartment we were rewarded with the beautiful views over the water. Jane had also provided some lovely snacks which were well received. The little extras really make this place feel like home. A great example is the 'forgotten yours' box in the bathroom. While we didn't need this, we imagine this would be very handy for many travellers. The beds were extremely comfortable. We hope we can stay again one day.

    Alison2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment in a great location. The views over Tarbert were fantastic to enjoy and we had an excellent New Year at the Crow’s Nest.

    Craig2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We spent the month of October at Jane's apartment and can't say enough good about it. The apartment is as described and very well equipped for cooking at home. The views were a constant pleasure, the location in the village couldn't have been better. Jane was an excellent host, left a little treat, explained everything thoroughly and even picked us up from the bus stop. And we loved Tarbert! Walked every afternoon, bought fish straight off the boat from Dougle for dinner, when we didn't get excellent meat from Richie the butcher. People were so friendly, everything we needed in Tarbert for a month without a car. I highly recommend Jane's apartment and the village of Tarbert.

Studio is well located just few minutes from the lovely town of Tarbert. Spectacular views, even got to see deers practically below the window. Nice starter pack with milk cereal and tea and coffee, oh and cant forgot the tunnocks tea cakes! Studio is lovely laid out, cosy, has a log fire , nice sized bathroom.

    Tarbert is a busy little village with some superb art galleries, crafts, cafés and bars. The harbour is a safe haven for the local fishing boats and a very popular destination for yachts. In May the Scottish Yacht Series is held on Loch Fyne. Seafood Festival, (bi-annual) Viking Festival, Traditional Boat Festival in July. And Tarbert Music Festival in September are very popular. The walks in around the village are a delight and a short climb to the ivy-strewn ruins of Robert the Bruce’s 14th century castle is definitely worth it for the views Tarbert is the gateway to the Kintyre Peninsula with its stunning white sandy beaches, there is easy access to no fewer than four ferry terminals. From the village you can sail to Portavadie (spa/outdoor pool and restaurants and the Cowal Peninsula. Or head south to Claonaig for the ferry to Arran where you can climb Goatfell. Islay, famous for its whisky, can be reached by ferries leaving Kennacraig, as can Jura, and the magical island of Gigha is a short ferry crossing from Tayinloan. Kilmartin is rich in archaeology with the remains of Neolithic and early Bronze Age monuments, burial cairns and standing stones. Inveraray Jail, Kilmory Castle and a choice of beautiful gardens are also well worth a visit. Lochgilphead and Oban, the seafood capital, are a short drive north. Eating out Tarbert has a variety of local eateries on the doorstep. Restaurants offering a taste of local fish and shellfish landed daily on Tarbert quay, alongside venison from Argyll. We always make the very best of what is on our doorstep here in Argyll. With some of the best meats, seafood, whiskey and now gins available on our doorstep, it would be difficult not to sample one or more of what Argyll has to offer! If your looking for something a little more simple Tarbert also has a Fish Bar, or head to the Indian restaurant, or the excellent Cadora Cafe where both allow you to byob

    A seaside cottage in the famous row of cottages known as The Twelve Apostles. The cottage provides all modern comforts yet still retains its charm and character. The cottage is ideal for walkers, golfers and wildlife enthusiasts. There are 3 double bedrooms upstairs and lounge with coal and log burning fire downstairs. The fully enclosed garden overlooks the Mull of Kintyre, with beautiful sunsets.
    This is a unique location, very peaceful and quiet, the row of cottages were built in 1860, Deer live in the hills behind the cottage, and the seals and sheep are easy to spot, and eagle spotting is popular .....but sitting in the garden with a glass of wine in the evening and watching the spectacular sunset is incredible.
  • Cottage has 3 big bedrooms, great sized kitchen/dining room. Lovely wood burner for those colder nights, a lovely little garden with cracking views and is close to many walks, trails and historical sites. Amazing cottage, anyone staying here will feel relaxed and invigorated.

  • The photos of house do not say enough.....The house is very roomy,clean and well equipped.The beds were very comfy too!! The setting is simply magnificent! The front of the house gets the sun all day and the view from the garden over the Bay is simply breathtaking. My kids spent hours on the Peebled Bay throwing stones into the water....watching seals and we even saw dolphins. There was a wee red squirrel in the garden and red deer can along to the Bay one morning. Thank you Jack and Evelyn

Highly recommend staying here!

  • Centrally located a stones throw from the harbour of which their is a nice view from the living room and the Coop through which all the world passes and you can people watch to your hearts content. The house is on three levels, an entrance to store shoes , an open staircase to the first level where there is a galley kitchen, bathroom, living room with a lovely view of the harbour and the dining room where there is a surprise guest. Top floor has two bedrooms, a double iron bedstead in one room and two single beds in the other. The house is very good value and central to the small village of Tarbert. Except the small village is stuffed with services to make a trip their area. There is not one but three fish providers; several restaurants from good to first class. The Anchorage is under new owners from September 2019 and was excellent value. Try the leek and crab tart as a starter if its still on-remarkable.

    Beautiful location on the Kintyre peninsula.
  • Great wee cottage, has everything you need and the bed is super comfy! The stream and the bottom of the garden makes it really special. It's a great base for exploring kintyre or the islands. We would definitely return, and can't wait to explore more. Ian and Linda were lovely welcoming hosts, and we would recommend the cottage to anyone visiting the area. Will definitely be back!

    Pierre2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy cottage, great location for exploring Kintyre, so much lovely landscape & scenery; we intended making it to at least one island, but never made it in the end- no need, too much to do! Recommend the Argyll beaver & wildlife trust- very friendly, & great guided walks. What was especially nice about staying here was the great hospitality from Linda & Ian, we (including our two dogs) couldn't have felt more welcome & relaxed. Highly recommended (although hope to come back, so don;t all book at once :-) )

    Rat2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • This little cottage is a really lovely place to escape to. Nice garden and log fire too. Great walk down to a wild beach looking out to the islands. Convenient for ferries to Islay, Jura and Gigha (Gigha is a good day trip), and the local petrol station has a decent shop too.

    Bob2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is interesting!! Linda is a great host and the cottage is roomy and full of character. It also has a beautiful babbling stream less than 10 metres from the back door. Clachan is very small, you need a car, if not to get there, then to get around. There is no cafe/restaurant for miles though some groceries are available at the service station nearby and the kitchen is adequately equipped. The beach is nice but it is a 20 minute walk through farmland and some rough paths to get there. But Clachan is handy to the entire Kintyre peninsula and so there is some beautiful beaches and scenery in the vicinity.

    Richard2019-08-07T00:00:00Z

  • Had a lovely couple of nights at Johns flat, we were met by John who gave us some very useful local knowledge of the surrounding area and restaurants. The flat is clean, nicely decorated and very peaceful. The location is excellent with a large window giving stunning views over the water towards the isle of Bute. You can sit at the window or on the sofa and gaze at the view for hours! The well stocked village store is just a short walk away and the Kames hotel (recommended!) is even closer. The log burner works very well, and the bed was very comfortable too! Recommend, we would definitely stay there again

Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits waiting for our arrival. John really is a super host. He was friendly, welcoming and had lots of local knowledge. Thank you so much John. The Kames Hotel is worth a visit. A 3 minute walk from the apartment. Very friendly staff and excellent food.

  • Very much enjoyed our stay over the weekend. Lovely clean and cosy apartment. Great views and location. Local amenities within walking distance. We took a trip to Ostel Bay Beach which is highly recommended. Thanks again and look forward to visiting the area again.

  • Great view, good value for money

    Graham2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect. Truly peaceful flat with the most beautiful view. Clean, fresh and cosy with everything you might need. John was excellent, tailoring info to my needs and accessible if needed. Loved it here!

    Lovedae M2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • John's place is outstanding for those looking for a quiet get away in a calm peaceful location. John himself is beyond helpful. The local hotel/restaurant/bar (Kames Hotel) is excellent. The local diner (The Little Kitchen) is great. Both are a short walk away. The setting is wonderful. Very highly recommended.

    Quiet, peaceful location in an unspoiled area full of wildflowers, where otters, seals, basking sharks, deer, eagles and a huge variety of other birds can be seen. Great views across the Kilbrannan Sound to Arran, starry nights and beautiful sunrises make this a very special place. Handy for ferries to Islay, Arran and Cowal. A great place to get away from it all and just chill. Please note the last few miles (max 10, min 4 depends where you start) are on single track road with passing places.
    The room has its own access from the garden so you have total privacy. There are no stairs but the path to the door slopes up to first floor level .
    Beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful but please note: Our home is on a single track road on the east side of the Kintyre Peninsula, overlooking the Kilbrannan Sound and the Isle of Arran. There are three other houses at Crossaig and no shops, restaurants or public transport. The nearest village is Skipness which is 7 miles north of us and has a very small shop and the Seafood Cabin restaurant. Carradale which is 9 miles south of our place has a shop, hotel, restaurants and golf course. Tarbert is the largest nearby village and has a variety of shops and eateries. It is approximately 15 miles north west of us.
  • You can expect a warm welcome from a generous host.

    Evalyn2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay; the location is stunning, quiet and peaceful, with a lovely view from the house and the front garden. Susan and Angus were really welcoming and helpful. The room has a private entrance (with a bathroom inside), is clean and tidy and provided with board games and books. Breakfast is good, provisions were stored in a fridge and in a cupboard inside the room, so we could have breakfast on our own. The ferry to the island of Array is 10 minutes drive away.

    Andrea2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Susan & Angus are kind approachable hosts. Their rural spot on the hillside overlooking the Isle of Arran is beautiful and quiet and restful after all the travelling we'd done. Don't limit yourself to one night here. 2. The well maintained Skipness Castle and church ruins and Smoke house are only 12km (19 min drive) away. All free and surrounded by lovely lawns and fields. Nearby is the Sea cabin restaurant which is worth a refreshment stop. The Isle of Arran ferry is 8km (11min drive) from the lodge. Campbeltown is 46min drive away with the Springbank/Longrow Distillery amongst others worth a visit. The room was clean, warm and inviting and Restfully Rural. The little fridge held all we needed for a nice continental breakfast.

    Ken2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The room at Crossaig Lodge is the dream. It is cosy, clean and has the most beautiful views. When we arrived late one night, there were deers at the front door, we couldn’t believe it. The house is in a remote place, far from any village or store, so the fact that breakfast is included is fantastic. The host is very nice, welcoming and willing to help. We couldn’t have had a better stay!

    "Home away from Home" Beautifully furnished cosy little Glamping Container by the Sea at Scalpsie Bay on the Isle of Bute.
    Surrounded by nature your neighbours will be the birds and the bees as well as the seals sunbathing on their rocky perches at Scalpsie Bay. Of course other people may visit the beach aswell :)
  • Great place and location. Cozy, simple and quiet. Peaceful.

    Joe2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • You'll struggle to find a more beautiful spot on Bute to relax and enjoy being close to nature. Perfect for a few days away.

    Vanessa2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is a little piece of heaven in the most beautiful setting. Strongly recommend the southern circular walk.

    Tabitha2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's cabin is so beautiful and cosy, the fire started easily and had the whole space toasty very quickly. Because it was winter there wasnt much power coming from the solar panels, but we had enough light to sit and read while drinking wine looking out at the moon shining over the sea. A beautiful weekend. The cabin in easy to find down the path to Scalpsie Bay

    Bertie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place, cozy, perfect location. If you want peace and relaxation with the option of taking a stroll in beautiful nature, this is the place. We loved it.

    Rebecca2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • My experience here was nothing short of incredible! The cabin looks out onto the ocean, and there’s a breathtaking mountain island in the distance. A warm fire in the stove behind me provided the perfect setting to do some journaling, drawing and reflecting. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, and the skylight above the bed convinced me that I want a skylight in my own home. House was perfectly and thoughtfully furnished, and Lisa was so friendly and helpful. I arrived after it was dark, and Lisa made sure the arrival was seamless. The hikes along the beach were invigorating, and it was fun to watch planes try and land at the airstrip when there were highs winds. I highly recommend staying here!

    John2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa’s pod is in an idyllic setting on Scalpsie beach. Five min walk from where you leave your car. Take wellies! Amazing views across to Arran from pod. Everything was provided to enable us to self cater although we can highly recommend Kingarth Hotel for food and Ettrick cafe for cake! Although small, we never felt like we were cramped and we could have happily spent longer there. Thank you very much Lisa!

    Claire2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Having grown up in the island I knew all about its natural beauty but even I was blown away by the location of Lisa’s Shepard’s Hut. Waking up to a view across Scalpsie Bay to the mountains of Arran was truly breathtaking. The Hut itself was incredible. All you could want when looking to escape the hectic lifestyle on the mainland. Huge comfy bed, great wee wood burner, and all the amenities you’d want for a real getaway. Lisa and Ian were great at making us feel welcome and giving us excellent recommendations of what to do and where to go on the island. Thank you!! Next time I will bring my wetsuit so I can go wild swimming in this stunning location.

    Isle of Bute, United Kingdom

    Charming cosy 2 bedroom stone cottage with a wood-burning stove on the Ardlamont Peninsula on Argyll’s Secret Coast, close to the well-known tourist playgrounds of Tighnabruaich and Portavadie with stunning views south to the Isle of Arran. Set in bucolic surroundings amongst green fields with plenty of sheep, cattle and birds for company, West Smithy Cottage is 4 miles south of Kames, close to magnificent beach at Ostel Bay in an area popular with sailors, cyclists and bon viveurs in general.
    The cottage has an open-plan living room with a wood-burning stove, a fully fitted kitchen and dining area, 2 bedrooms and a modern shower room. Outside, there is an extensive front garden shared with the neighbouring cottage and a small, secluded back garden with a picnic bench, ideal for enjoying the beautiful surroundings, which only add to the endless appeal. An ideal retreat for all seasons.
    West Smithy Cottage is close to the following places which are all worth a visit: 1. Tighnabruaich & Kames: Good pubs at Kames Hotel (much improved) overlooking boats moored in the West Kyle and the North end of Bute and also the Shinty Bar at the Royal Hotel in Tighnabruaich. Posher lounge bar in the Royal too. Fine place to eat at Botanic Cafe and very good food at the Kames Hotel too. Can also eat at the Royal. Shops - Spar (and ATM) in Tighnabruaich and Kames Village Stores. Firewood on sale in Kames. Look out for locally produced food too - particularly good venison produced by a man with the unlikely name of Winston Churchill is available in local shops and at his place at Clachaig near Samdbank. Art Galleries dotted about. 9 hole golf course at Kames. Set of clubs available if you wish to use. Please let me know in advance and I’ll arrange get them down from loft. Shinty: this is hockey with added violence - similar to hurly in Ireland. Popular sport in the Highlands, local team, Kyles Athletic, play on pitch off road between Kames and Tighnabruaich. And then repair to the Shinty Bar. Sailing at sailing centre on the Kames road - you can hire dinghies. If you fancy a trip in the world’s last remaining, ocean-going paddle steamer, the “SS Waverley”, it calls in at Tighnabruaich Pier every Wednesday from late June to late August at around lunchtime and goes on a short cruise to Tarbert (see later) on Loch Fyne, passing the cottage as it nears Ardlamont Point, and back returning at about 5 o’clock. Well worth a trip. See pictures for current timetable. 2. Portavadie Extraordinary redevelopment of a former white elephant 1970s oil rig construction yard. Now home to chi chi apartments, a great restaurant, a swimming pool and spa (complete with outdoor infinity pool overlooking Loch Fyne - quite possibly the only one on Loch Fyne), a marina and boatyard. Well worth a visit - very good Sunday lunch menu. 3. Beaches Fantastic beach at Ostel Bay - it is about a mile's walk from Kilbride Farm on the Millhouse road. Nice wee pop-up café at the farm. Stonier beaches nearby at the end of the farm track within walking distance. 3. Further afield Oystercatcher pub and restaurant at Otter Ferry is very good - about 10 miles north overlooking beach. Fine restaurant at Inver Cottage further on from Otter Ferry - never been but gets rave reviews. People travel miles to visit it - has rooms if you’ve overdone it. Ferry from Portavadie takes you to Tarbert, a pretty fishing village on Kintyre peninsula. Great fishmonger on the jetty to take some seafood back to cook at the end of the day. One or two semi-decent pubs and nice restaurant called the Anchorage which was very good the last time I went, admittedly in 1995, and always a buzz around the place, in summer anyway. Skipness Castle - there is the Seafood Cabin here. It is at the end of the road over from Tarbert. Cabin is some kind of tinker’s wagon parked in a garden with lots of picnic tables. It is gloriously chaotic: you will need to get used to hens clucking about at your feet as you munch away on your crab sandwich or mussels but the food is always good. And the sun always seems to shine. You can explore the castle after lunch and climb up to the vertiginous ramparts and enjoy yet more views over to Arran. But don’t look down! Isle of Gigha - this would be a 4 ferry trip - Portavadie to Tarbert, then drive 20 miles to Tayinloan and get another ferry to lovely Gigha with its beaches (head for Twin Beaches to north of Island if you can), seafood café, hotel and gardens at Achamore. You can hire bikes there - it is very flat. V. fine views to islands of Islay, famous for its whisky, and Jura and the Paps (mountains). Note last ferry is at 4:30 pm so if you miss it you will be staying overnight! Ferry goes to Islay from Kennacraig near Tarbert - worth visiting the distilleries, particularly during the Malt Whisky Festival in May of each year. But perhaps too much for a day trip, particularly if you have been doing some in-depth sampling of the “twilight wine of Scotland”, to quote the late Alistair Cooke. Hope you enjoy some of these suggestions. If you find something else that you would like to recommend to other guests, please mention it in your review. Slainte!
  • We really enjoyed our short break at this lovely little cottage, set in a stunning, peaceful part of the country with plenty to do nearby. The walk to Ostel Bay is well worth doing (a bit boggy in winter so wellies a good option!); gorgeous views across to Arran and we had the whole beach to ourself. There are lovely drives, walks and views around Tighnabruaich and Portavadie, and it’s equally nice just to light the fire on a dreich day and coorie in. Lack of WiFi and limited phone signal around the area actually made a welcome change and helped us totally switch off. Cottage is very well-appointed, bed very comfortable, and as we were travelling with our 11 month-old we appreciated the travel cot and high chair. Hope to be back sometime!

    Marissa2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is beautiful, small but perfectly formed with a wonderful array of music and DVD’s to entertain yourselves on a rainy day. It’s cosy, spotless and Donald was a gracious and attentive host. We would definitely recommend it for a couple or small family looking to see a beautiful remote part of the west coast of Scotland - you will not be disappointed.

    Grace2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Cosy stove. Perfect for exploring the secret coast. Everything has been thought of in the cottage. Hope to be back.

    Calum2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cosy cottage in a quiet location with nice views of the countryside and Arran in the distance. We found it very clean and comfortable and enjoyed the woodburner. There's limited phone reception and no wifi so it's perfect if you want a break from busy lives! We enjoyed watching the DVDs in the evening by the fire. There are lots of nice walks in the area. We went to Ostel Bay which was completely deserted so we had the beach to ourselves. We highly recommend a trip to the pub at Otter Ferry, the food was amazing! This cottage is great for a relaxing winter break and I'm sure it's fabulous in the summer when you could hire bikes and enjoy the coastline even more.

    Clementine2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Smithy cottage is the most relaxing comfortable place to get away from it all . I recently spent 3 nights in Donald’s place with my partner and 19 month old . We all had a fantastic time and enjoyed the cottage immensely. Donald thinks of everything in terms of practicalities and comfort . The cottage has fantastically comfortable beds , the living room with the log stove is so cosy and homely and the kitchen is very well equipped it really is a home away from home . Travel cot and high chair supplied for wee ones , lots of DVD’s board games and a great choice of books , I want to return to finish the one I started 😂 Donald supply’s a tonne of local info and maps that make navigating the area a little easier . The local area is beautiful I highly recommend packing welly’s and visiting Ostel Bay Beach . Portavadie spa is worth a visit too and a daily pass is so cheap . Will def return to this little slice of heaven .

    Kerry2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cosy cottage in a lovely scenic area. Local amenities only a couple of minutes away in a car. Donald was a good, communicative host.

    Allan2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a perfect place to escape the world, you won’t go wrong with Donald’s place. The cottage was a perfect haven from some wild Scottish weather & lovely to return to, light a fire & hunker down. It was very well equipped, clean, with everything you would need for a short (or long) stay. Donald’s communication was great & always super quick. His recommendations were extensive and welcomed. We used it as a base to hike from and explore the stunning coastline from the door. Plenty of places to eat and stock up locally. Kames store is great & everyone is super friendly. We’d also recommend the pub at otter ferry, the oystercatcher!! The cottage was easy to find with Donald’s directions. Can’t thank you enough for a perfect stay Donald & we’d certainly love to return one day. Highly recommended. Cheers

  • Wonderful cottage in a nice location, comes with a beautiful garden just next to a river - refreshing. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, gave tips of some activities to do nearby and even tried to help us recover a lost phone on the bus ride over.

    Ryan2019-08-26T00:00:00Z

The location allowed for so many possibilities of things to do and places to see. The hosts were very helpful and attentive and we enjoyed our chats with them! We had an amazing time and would happily visit again!

  • Fantastic cozy space! We took many design tips for our future home, such as the gorgeous wooden stairs, built-in shelving, sky lights, and of course the magnificent classic Scottish garden. So convenient, we made two trips to Islay on the wonderful ferry (only 15 min from the Airbnb)! Absolute perfect home-base from which to explore the picturesque Kintyre peninsula.

    Roy2019-06-23T00:00:00Z

  • What a wonderful find morags place was. We have used other Airbnb's at kames, but by far this was the best. Shore cottages are in a beautiful location. Surrounded by well kept communal garden and clear paths. View was stunning. The flat had everything you needed, and the complimentary coffee pods were much appreciated. Was nice and cosy with the log burner on, and very aesthetic on a cold evening. Wifi speed was good also. Very handy for the local store. There wasn't anything we did not like and we will definitely return to this beautiful place. Thanks morag. Nicky and john

    Nicola2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Picture this. You get to an Airbnb and you realise all you really needed to bring was clothes. That the hosts have even provided toothpaste. You walk around the flat and it's immaculate. The coffee maker works and there's a stack of capsules waiting. There's even beans in the cupboard! You try to light the log fire, but due to your lack of fire lighting skills it takes a while. Only to discover there's instructions laid out for you. But when it gets going, such a joy. Then you go to bed, you wake up in morning and swear you will steal that bed when you leave. That sleep was too good. You open the window and what a view. The hosts text you to say "If you need anything, let us know." What I need to know is, can I stay here?

Fully equipped apartment with stove that we lit each evening. a lot of strolls to Stroll looking at one side the beautiful nature and the other no less beautiful cottages! Go from island to island with the ferry, experience quite exceptional. And ragdle yourself in coffee-shops and the charming welcome of native people. A good address!

    Jonathan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at the farm, it had everything you could need, including the biggest collection of the DVDs for those rainy days. The place was sparkling clean and was so lovely and cossy with the log burning fire. Would definitely return, and highly recommend!!

    Lucy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Scalpsie Farm. We arrived in the middle of Storm Dennis so it was wonderful to be in such a warm and comfortable house. The house had everything we needed for our 18 month old little boy and he loved seeing the tractors and animals outside the window. A definite highlight was meeting the beautiful puppies. We had a great time and hope to be back during better weather to make the most of the gorgeous beach and views across to Arran.

    Jennifer2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's place was perfect for our half term break. It was very spacious and absolutely spotlessly clean. Lisa was extremely accommodating, as it was a last minute booking. The uncertainty with the ferry/weather could have caused problems but Lisa was in contact and offered alternatives, had we needed them.

    Nichola2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Scalpsie Farm is a wonderful location on a beautiful island. Lisa's place was extremely homely with amazing views and walks. We wanted to take your bay window and views back home with us. What a great place to visit and stay, you will not be disappointed only when it comes to leave..we wanted to stay longer..maybe next time.

    Part of the renovated Coach House. An idyllic spot, surrounded by fields and woodland. Located off the Castle driveway, it is not far from the beach, Village, Castle, Seafood Cabin or Smokehouse. The properties are newly furnished with modern interiors and double-glazing. Very convenient for the Claonaig ferry to Arran (7min drive) and Kennacraig ferry terminal (20min drive).
    The entrance goes straight into an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a microwave. There is a modern TV and wifi. Off the dining area are two bedrooms - a double and a twin - and a family bathroom. At the rear of the property is a second double room with ensuite wetroom. There is step-free access to this room via a back door.
    Skipness is a small village on the eastern shore of the Kintyre peninsula, looking across the Kilbrannan Sound towards Arran. There are also magnificent views to Cowalside, Bute and the Ayrshire coast. It is a quiet haven, where the main activities are farming, forestry, tourism, fishing and conservation. The Village Hall holds regular Ceilidhs and dances during the year for locals and holiday-makers alike. Skipness Point marks the beginning of Loch Fyne and evidence can still be seen of the moorings where ships of long ago were once fastened. The very word Skipness, which in the ancient Nordic tongue means “Point of the Ships”, conjures up pictures of the Vikings who dominated the Highlands and Islands for so long. To secure the peace, the building of the first Skipness Castle began in the 13th century and the ruined walls and massive tower house still guard the shore. It ts one of the earliest standing castle buildings in Scotland. The ruins of the medieval Kilbrannan Chapel lie just a little further, towards The Point.

  • An idilic converted stable bloc with all the modern mod-cons. Clean, tidy and very comfortable the stables provides a brilliant base to explore the surrounding area or as a stop off between ferries. I would absolutely recommend this accommodation and will look to stay again if i am ever back in the neighbourhood. Emma the host is excellent. Prompt and informative, her communications / recommendations made the stay that more enjoyable / stress free. 5⭐️

  • Lovely location, great for dog walks and very peaceful. Owner was great at communicating- there was a water leak before we arrived but it was all sorted for when we arrived and she kept us informed. One even better if would be fix the kitchen cupboard which opens with gravity but other than that it was grand. It was a great space for 2 of us but would be cosy with 6.

  • Amazing views from a very chilled out space. Log burner, comfy beds, great location, convenient local shop and restaurants if you do want to venture out. Lovely stroll up to castle and into the countryside beyond.

    Kath2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice apartment with a breathtaking view of the pretty port of Tarbert, a grocery store 100m, and a very beautiful area to go.

    Samuel2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nicely appointed flat. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Marc2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place to stay. Very relaxed and easy, the perfect place to get away from everything. Make sure you walk around the bay (in both directions) and discover some of the beautiful beaches. Kathleen is a great host, very responsive and full of local tips. Make sure you visit the seafood shop by the ferry port, amazing quality and fantastic value for money.

    Sarah2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kathleen's place is amazing with a great view and great location.

    Nuri2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem of a flat which was quirky yet functional for our family of four. The entire flat was spotless and beds very comfortable. The views were absolutely stunning, and it's central locality was perfect. Very much a home from home in which we would definitely recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing stay in Tarbert.

    Nicola2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Kathleen's appartment. It is a cosy and very well decorated flat. The bed is extremely comfortable and when lying on it you have a beautiful view on the Harbour. For people wishing to sleep with the window open, it can be from time to time a bit noisy as the appartment is on the main road. We asked the question before renting the flat and Kathleen was very honest about it. And indeed, finally, it was Ok with us. Kathleen has been very nice and helpful. She explained where we could find excellent scallops, mussels, crabs and langoustines . Tarbert area is beautiful and there are many walks and visits to do. We will come back to Tarbert and will stay again at Kathleen's for sure .

  • Paul is a wonderful host, who put himself out to be up and give me breakfast at 6am which was not expected, very thoughtful. Will be back again soon. Highly recommended!

    Jessie2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Paul and Sheila, for making us feel welcome in your home. The bed is comfortable, the room is a great size, with spectacular views and a small walk into town. Paul cooked us a fantastic breakfast and is a wonderful host. Thanks Again, Danielle and Steve 😊

    Danielle2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a friendly welcome and warm hospitality. Upon arrival we were invited to join Paul and his wife Sheila in his front garden, which has a fabulous harbour view and was a real pleasure. If the weather isn't as nice for you as it was for us, fear not, because you will be able to enjoy it safely sheltered in your room as well as at the breakfast table. On the subject of breakfast - Paul's reputation for serving a good one is well deserved. We had a wonderful weekend away, thanks for a great stay!

    Eddie2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Secure dry area for cycles and good breakfast to set cyclists off on their adventures.

    Izzie2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Paul was an exceptionally kind host. My boyfriend and I got up at 5:30 in the morning to catch the first ferry from Kennacraig (only 10 minutes away), and Paul woke up equally early to make us a light breakfast of toast, fruit, and coffee/tea. He also provided us with some dinner recommendations the night before; he also mentioned many of the restaurants close around 8 or 9 since it is a small village, so that is also worth mentioning here. The house was a bit difficult to find if you're not used to Scottish addresses, so do note that there is a sign for "Harbor Cottage" on the wall next to the road, and the first picture in the listing is an exterior photo of the home.

    Leanne2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect location in Tarbert, Paul's place has a wonderful view of the harbor. Our room was bright and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Excellent cooked breakfasts everyday. Paul is a caring and thoughtful host - we enjoyed chatting with him, and he provided great tips for local places to visit. In summary, a great place with a great host. Highly recommended.

    Mark2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We booked with Paul at short notice and he accepted promptly which was really helpful. Paul and Sheila's home is in a great location and the room was perfect, very clean and the bed was so comfy! Paul's cooked breakfast every morning was the highlight for us, it was delicious! The en suite bathroom was great as well and Paul made sure we had everything we needed. He took the time to write us driving instructions to a lovely local canal which we visited and really enjoyed! The nicest and most thoughtful host, our best b&b experience. Would highly recommend!

    Ben2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Paul met us at the door and welcomed us into his home. We were tired after a long day so went straight to bed. Bed was very comfortable and had a good nights sleep. Woke to a great home cooked breakfast. Beautiful view of the harbour. Would stay there again!
