We spent a long weekend here with Phil and Kath who were, as others have pointed out, the perfect hosts. Our room was bright and spacious with a view towards Brodick Bay (soft Arran weather permitting). The bathroom had a separate bathtub and shower, although there is perhaps a problem with the capacity of the hot water tank as we were only able to run a deep hot bath on two of the four nights during our stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and the location is very quiet so getting a peaceful night's rest was never a problem. Breakfast is ordered the night before so everything runs very smoothly the next morning.
Kath and Phil are very knowledgeable about the island and are more than happy to provide tips about where to go and what to do. The only issue (and one that stops a 5-star rating) is the atrocious state of the approach road - half a mile of unsurfaced farm track which is now severely rutted with potholes, making every arrival and departure something of a challenge. So, leave the low-slung sports car at home and bring the 4x4 and you'll be ok!
