The principal farmhouse on the Isle of Arran, this fabulous seven-bedroom property is perfect for families and groups of friends seeking a holiday exploring the natural beauty and outdoor adventures of this magical Isle.

This fantastic property, situated just 1.5 miles outside of the village of Machrie, is perfect for you and your guests – including the four-legged ones! Sleeping fourteen with plenty of room for up to two dogs, it won’t be long before you’re off out exploring this attractive island. Go for long walks along Machrie’s shingle beach or hike through the moorland to the Auchagallon Stone Circle (1.5 miles) before popping down to a dog-friendly pub just 6 miles away. The heated boot room is the perfect place to store your walking gear and towel off your pet after a long muddy hike.

The property, which is located on a working farm in an elevated position looking across to the Mull of Kintyre, has an elegant and refined feel. Earthy tones paired with sophisticated furniture in the social spaces make them a pleasure to relax and catch up with family and friends in, while tranquil decor and soft lighting in the bedrooms ensure that you’ll get a peaceful night’s sleep. Spend warm evenings sizzling up the BBQ and dining alfresco while the pups run on the lawn, or if it’s a little chilly, enjoy fantastic countryside views from the conservatory with a drink in hand. And if you’re feeling competitive, challenge your guests to table tennis, billiards or table football in the games barn and start your own holiday tournament.

Go for walkies around the beautiful garden and country park at Brodick Castle (11 miles), or for something a bit more challenging try heading up Goat Fell (14 miles); there’s a paved path that’s ideal for four-pawed pals and children. Auchrannie (10.5 miles) is also perfect for gorge walking, abseiling or even mountain biking. But if you’re a group of whiskey lovers, you must head to Lochranza Distillery (14 miles). The birthplace of Arran Single Malt, your dog can join you and even have their picture taken on top of a barrel!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A truly beautiful property. Tasteful interior design. Lots of space for a large party and the arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms allows for privacy. Everywhere on Arran is easily accessible. Our granddaughter loved the beach. We walked our dog along the Blackwaterfoot beach each evening. Hares cavorted on the fields in front of the property eachRead more morning - it was quite charming and highly recommended. Hide
