A wonderful experience. Location is great- right near the beach only a few minutes walk from Glen Sannox and great hikes through pastures and toward the Saddle (for a more strenuous and gorgeous hike). The accommodations are wonderful- clean, welcoming, everything functional...it feels like you're at home. Also, a 2 minute walk to the bus stop. David (Claire was not around when I visited) was an excellent host. Polite, friendly, informative but not "up in your business". I've been to B&Bs where the owners try too hard to become friends with you and it can be oppressive. David was very laid back and unobtrusive- If I needed information, had questions or wanted to chat, he was more than willing, but when I just felt like doing my own thing, he laid low. He was very accommodating to my needs, providing food options for my dietary restrictions, and keeping the dogs in other rooms when I was around (I'm allergic). The food was excellent! For a solo trip it's a great place to stay while you explore the beautiful vistas, flora, fauna and wonderfully undeveloped Island of Arran.
