    The houses are set in very large grounds, ideal for children's play.
    Early risers may see two large hares enjoying our shrubbery. The seals on the rocks are so close you can hear them. And then there is a family of otters!

    Road Directions

    Head for Ardrossan and follow the signs for the Arran Ferry or Ardrossan Harbour. From Glasgow the quickest and simplest route is to follow M77 A77 A78. You will pick up signs for Ardrossan and the Arran Ferry once you are on the A78.

    When you arrive in Brodick, leave the harbour and turn left (south). Follow the main road through Lamlash and Whiting Bay for about 18km. You will see a small green corrugated iron house (see picture gallery) and the sign for KIldonan. You turn left in fromt of the green house. Travel down to Kildonan shore, past the Kildonan Hotel and head towards a red colonial style house. Grianan House and Cottage are white houses on the right hand side after Island Properties and before the large red house. There is a sign at the entrance.
