On the upper floor there is an open plan living room and kitchen area with partial sea views towards Holy Isle.
Outside there is an attractive garden with seating overlooking the bay. There is also a separate Laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer and space for storage of outdoor gear, golf clubs, etc. Please note the cottage is appended to The Grange - this property is also available as a holiday let (Holiday Lettings Property Code: 279961).
The village of Whiting Bay has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and is self-contained with a useful range of small independent shops and services for easy living. Felicity's at Bar Eden is close by for morning coffee, lunch and dinner. For family entertainment, the Village Hall plays host to an eclectic range of local bands, visiting musicians and ceilidhs.
Next to the cottage, you will discover our own fabulous Arran Art Gallery with an inspiring range of original artwork, limited edition prints, ceramics and glassware together with a pretty courtyard garden.
Whiting Bay boasts a long sandy beach with plenty of rock pools to explore at low tide. Village amenities include a pitch & putt course, a children's play park and the beach is wide enough at low tide for a game of rounders. There is an 18-hole golf course, where visitors are very welcome.
There are numerous good walks close by with forestry trails for mountain biking and walking, with circular trails to the spectacular Glenashdale Falls, the prehistoric burial chambers of Giant's Graves and King's Cross Point.
Felicity's at Bar Eden is a vibrant spot for morning coffee, lunch and evening meals. We would also recommend the Glenisle Hotel and the Drift Inn in nearby Lamlash.
Online bookings are available via our the Arran Holiday Retreats website.
