“Perfect”

A perfect holiday in a perfect location. We had a hugely enjoyable week on Arran with the bonus of a warm friendly welcome everywhere. The bungalow was well equipped, immaculately maintained, comfortable and peaceful while being conveniently located for the car ferry, shops and restaurants. The views from the front were stunning (pictured). We particularly enjoyed dining at a folk music evening at the Fiddlers' Bar nearby. A very short drive away, Lamlash (pictured) offered further excellent opportunities to eat out, and of course the unmissable short ferry ride to Holy Isle. Only sorry we missed the opportunity to thank Fiona in person at the end of our stay.

Comfortable and very well situated base for a holiday on Arran. Easy access on foot from pier and short walk to golf course, beach and the shops. Hill location gives good view of Brodick bay and Goatfell.

Recently stayed at this wonderful little cottage. Located close to the ferry terminal at Brodick and local amenities. Stunning sea views and views across to goatfell.
Well equipped with everything you need for your stay. If you're looking for a relaxing break I'd highly recommend staying at Thorncliffe cottage.
Loved it so much I'm already planning my next visit.

“Warm welcome & a wonderful stay”
Reviewed November 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Arrived at Tarken lodge on the saturday afternoon & we were met by Sheila & a bundle of hot scones which was a really nice touch. The Lodge itself was perfect, very clean ,spacious & with plenty of books & puzzles to wile away a rainy afternoon.
A lovely view of the loch through the large picture windows to the front & a relaxing whirpool bath to soak those leg muscles after a long stroll with the dog.
Really could not fault the lodge on any level,but in the wet weather Wellies are a must if you want to walk along the old railway line to the rear of the property it was VERY boggy but rewarding with a few waterfalls to admire along the way.
Would recommend a trip to the Deil's cauldron along the road at Comrie & also the falls of Turret just outside Crieff. Also worth a look is the Nutcracker Christmas shop also in Crieff.
The wife & I have been renting various properties around Scotland at this time of year for approx 15 years now & we both agree this one was our favourite.

“Wonderful cottage in the perfect location”

We had a fantastic week on the beautiful island of Arran. The weather was changeable but Thornecliffe cottage was so comfortable and welcoming that it didn't really matter. The views from the cottage are spectacular, no photograph could do them justice. The cottage is tastefully decorated and has everything you might need for a weeks self catering. The attention to detail made it very special, we particularly liked the Arran Aromatics toiletries.
All the amenities of Brodick are just a short walk away, there are lots of good places to eat and live music at The Fiddlers most nights.
