The Boathouse is a truly unique and charming self catering property situated on the shore in the picturesque village of Kildonan on the beautiful Isle of Arran. Boasting breathtaking views The Boathouse is located directly on the beach with uninterrupted views of the islands of Ailsa Craig and Pladda.
A stunning property designed and built by owners Max and Judi it offers a romantic and unforgettable holiday experience.

The space
The Boathouse is surprisingly spacious and sleeps up to two adults in a comfortable, hand crafted, double sofa bed. There is a gas cooker with two ring hob and oven, sink, wood burning stove and seating area. It provides the perfect location for peaceful walks along the shore with a variety of wildlife including seals, dolphins, basking sharks, numerous seabirds and our own resident family of otters all of which may be seen from the property.
There is an outdoor area with BBQ, table and chairs as well as a firepit for keeping cosy on cooler evenings or toasting marshmallows while watching the sensational sunsets!
The Boathouse features a separate bathroom and shower area a few metres from the property. The bathroom is fully plumbed with a flushing toilet and powerful, hot outdoor shower. It is screened from view and entirely private - a truly luxurious experience. Once you've tried it you'll never want to shower indoors again!
The Boathouse is fully wired and features a small fridge, electric lighting, an electric heater, DAB radio with bluetooth speaker and sockets for charging mobile devices etc.
There is no WiFi but most mobile networks get some 4G signal.
We do have a washing machine and tumble dryer available in a separate wash house nearby if required.

We regret that we cannot accommodate children or pets.

The property has its own parking and private entrance

Location

Kildonan, Scotland, United Kingdom

Often referred to as ‘Scotland in Miniature’ Arran captures many aspects of the beauty of Scotland from towering mountain summits to peaceful sandy bays. The wildlife is outstanding with deer, pheasant, otter, seals and even golden eagles.
The Boathouse is an ideal base from which to explore all that Arran has to offer. From the door you can walk along the shore to see the large colony of common seals which are present all year. You can also walk up the hill to the Eas Mor waterfall or further up to Loch Garbad. If you are feeling brave you can even venture in for a swim directly from your doorstep!
The island is perfect for nature lovers, bird watchers, walkers, golfers, cyclists, couples and those just looking for a relaxing or romantic getaway.
