Stunning, large beachfront house in Kildonan, a quiet village on the south coast of Arran. All bedrooms, lounge, dining room and sun room have panoramic sea views. The balcony and large, south facing enclosed garden also benefit from the fabulous sea views. There is direct access to the beach via a private field. The house is spacious, sunny and comfortable, with some original features from when it was a Croft, but it is now fully modernized....Stunning, large beachfront house in Kildonan, a quiet village on the south coast of Arran.

About the neighborhood
Kildonan is a quiet village in the south, with a fabulous stretch of beach and lovely walks in the hills behind. The beach has rocky parts, which usually have seals sitting on them, but there are also sheltered, sandy bays. At Eas Mor just up the hill, there’s a beautiful walk up to the waterfall, passing a wee “library” in the woods, with the option to wander up to the incredibly peaceful Loch Garbad. The Kildonan hotel is nearby, which does great food and has a lovely, dog-friendly bar.
Getting around
Easy to get to by bus - service 323 meets the main boats, and has a stop a few hundred metres from the house.
