About the location

Arran is known as Scotland in Miniature and is a popular holiday and retirement island, as well as being a haven for golfers, walkers,cyclists, climbers and artists. Arran has a number of historic monuments, including Brodick Castle (National Trust for Scotland), Lochranza Castle (small ruin run by Historic Scotland), stone circles and other neolithic monuments, and a small local history museum. It is also an easy day trip by car and ferry to Kilmartin Glen, in Argyll, one of the largest neolithic areas in Scotland.

The cottage is accessible easily by train and ferry from Glasgow (about 2 hours) or by car via the Calmac ferry from Ardrossan (50 minutes). The local bus runs every half hour or hour Monday to Saturday but less frequently on Sunday.

It is a short walk into the centre of the village, where there are a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants, a chemist, supermarket and so on. The golf course restaurant and bar are across the road.

Lamlash has a small marina and boat trips to Holy Isle are possible year round.
