Escape to this 19th-century courtyard bothy and enjoy its fabulous setting on a private family 25,000-acre estate overlooking the Kilbrennan Sound on the west coast of the Isle of Arran. Sleeping four guests, this property is the perfect romantic hideaway as you can explore miles of tranquil countryside, stroll the surrounding grounds or venture to the quiet beach nearby for long walks. It is equally ideal for a family as the estate has plenty to enjoy from the doorstep.

The space
This property has been restored to provide lovely, comfortable living, yet still retains some of the original features including thick stone walls and sloped ceilings.

Climb the steep stone steps from the tower courtyard and through the front door into a semi open-plan space next to a galley kitchen which is well-equipped. The living space, which is all on one floor, has neutral tones and a cosy open fire to keep you warm on chillier evenings. The two snug and cosy bedrooms – one super king and one king-sized – can both be arranged as twins upon request making this a convenient property whatever your group make-up.

Right on your doorstep you will find a walk to Loch Iorsa and the boathouse as well as Dougarie Beach. From here you will welcome fabulous views across to the Kintyre Peninsula. There is also a golf club just 1.5 miles away and trout and salmon fishing by arrangement. You can also book this property alongside others on the estate for a large group getaway of up to 31 people
