Set in a wonderfully tranquil location away from the road and with commanding views out to sea, Willow Cottage is a charming and recently renovated traditional stonemasons cottage. Just a very short stroll from a wonderful sandy beach yet within easy access to some of the fantastic walks in the north of the island and some of the many golf courses that Arran has to offer, this cottage would appeal especially to those who enjoy the outdoors.
The house has a great character and a rich history with the sea, with one of the living areas retained in original layout, whilst the upstairs level is entirely new. Benefitting from two multi fuel stoves, guests to this cottage can look forward to relaxing in front of the fire after a day out exploring the island and all of the attractions that Arran has to offer.
The cottage itself will provide a very comfortable and cosy base from which to make the most of the island, particularly the mountainous region in the north as well as the beautiful sandy beaches on the north west coast. There are a number of excellent restaurants very close by in the villages of Catacol, Pirnmill and Lochranza.
From this location, the Kintyre Peninsula can also be easily explored by taking a short boat trip from Lochranza. In particular, Skipness Castle and seafood restaurant is wonderful day trip for all of the family. Lochranza is also home to Arran’s main distillery and whisky lovers will be able to enjoy some of the samples on one of the many distillery tours. For those interested in historical sites, the King’s Caves in Blackwaterfoot are a series of natural sandstone caves with ancient carvings on the walls. In addition, the site of the Machrie Standing Stones is just a short drive from the cottage.
