Such a pity that our stay at Darven Cottage was only for two nights - we would have loved to explore the Island of Arran and David and Claire's delightful hospitality a little longer. A comfortable cottage in a lovely, quiet location adjacent to the beach overlooking the Firth of Clyde, and superbly situated for walking trips, particularly to Goatfell.... More

Just returned from staying for four nights with David, Claire and family(July 2010). It was our third visit since they started their B & B business last year at their original property. Our first time at Darven though. We have had the best time ever. David and Claire are extremely fantastic hosts, nothing seems to phase them even though there... More

David is such a great host! He prepared a great dinner for us the day we arrived so we didn't need to do any extra travel. He made lunch for us when we left! And he let us borrow golf clubs so we could say we golfed in Scotland! We felt very much part of his family. Our room was... More

Absolutely fantastic is how I would describe our experience at David and Claire's beautiful home on Arran, Darven Cottage. They were previously at Aros Beag down the road but have now moved here. Prior to our arrival, I had a plenty of communication with David via email. Being from the states, this was the easiest method for me and David... More

Our stay at Darven Cottage and visit to Arran has proven to be one of our most memorable weekend trips to date and this is down to the warm, kind, and generous hospitality from David and Claire who own and manage this wonderful little Bed & Breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble for them to make your stay as comfortable,... More

Just back from 3 days walking on Arran, this was a great place to stay! David and Claire are fabulous hosts, the rooms are very comfortable (the website pictures do not do them justice) and it is just the most amazing spot and so peaceful. Breakfast was enormous, and even after a long mornings walk I still did not need... More

From the moment you make the first contact, to the parting farewell, you will find Claire and David's hospitality second to none. The B&B itself is a lovely dwelling - spotlessly clean, bright and comfortable with water and garden views to keep you mesmerised for hours. Of course, you have an island to discover so don’t spend all your time... More

I was so glad Lochranza was full - otherwise we would not have found Darven Cottage B & B or enjoyed David's cooking and camaraderie! Nothing was too much trouble - fetching us from the ferry, running us into Brodick next day and making two lovely dinners. It was also a pleasure to meet Claire, the dogs and the chooks!... More

We have stayed is some truely wonderful places in Scotland, welcoming B&Bs and fabulous hotels but Darven Cottage is, without doubt, the best B&B-come-home-away-from-home it is possible to find. Home-cooked meals, friendly owners and 2 crazy dogs made for a perfect stay in the most beautiful of surroundings. We paddled in the sea with David's lovely pooches, ate wonderful cheeses... More

Aros Beag is David and Claire's self catering apartments and they have moved next door to carry on their excellent BnB in Darven Cottage. We had plenty of communication prior to arrival, and after a wonderful sail on the ferry and then the short bus trip we were met by the owner David at 10pm ish, with a torch to... More
