Our home

The terraced cottage is excellently situated in the middle of the village with an open outlook over Lamlash Bay and the Holy Isle and is well placed for all local amenities including a supermarket which is only a two minute walk away. Lamlash offers a good range of services for the tourist including a selection of eating and drinking establishments. There is a bus stop just outside the cottage with a regular bus service to all parts of the island.
From the bay window in the living room on the ground floor there are spectacular views to the Holy Isle where you can sit and watch the world go by. There is a TV, Freeview, DVD/CD player and a superfast broadband connection which gives excellent WiFi. Also on the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen/dining room, a bedroom with 6’ bunk beds and a bathroom with a bath and shower
There are two bedrooms upstairs. One with a double bed and one with two single beds. A travel cot is also available.
There is a large common green in front of the house where children can play and families can socialise and meet new friends. There is a drying green at the rear of the property.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The Isle of Arran known as "Scotland in Miniature" is one of the most southerly Scottish islands. Like a condensed version of the rest of Scotland, it has mountains and lochs in the north and rolling hills and meadows in the south, surrounded by a stunning coastline. Ideal for adults and children with or without transport, beach, shops, boating, fishing, hillwalking, bowling, tennis, putting and 7 golf courses to choose from.
Arran is connected with the Scottish mainland by two Caledonian MacBrayne ferries, one from Ardrossan to Brodick (55 minutes) and the second (in summertime only) from Claonaig to Lochranza (30 minutes). Ardrossan is only 28 miles from Glasgow Airport and only 16 miles from Glasgow Prestwick International Airport. Edinburgh airport is 79 miles from Ardrossan. During previous exchanges people have stayed a few days in Edinburgh to take in the sites before coming to Arran.
