Self Catering

Your island home

Nowadays, we all want some freedom to explore, and to please ourselves. Self catering on Arran offers you opportunity to wake up hearing the sounds of the gulls, or roar of the stags whilst you enjoy a real home-from-home, with luxurious accommodation options all furnished to high standard, and offering a warm Arran welcome.

Whether you want the tranquillity of being isolated in a cottage up a glen, the joys of a hot tub in the garden, the comfort of a resort lodge with all amenities close by, or stunning sea and hill views from your holiday house, you can be assured that there is self catering accommodation to suit everyone on Arran. There are various agencies that can help you select from a range of options, or you can go direct to the private owners and book yourself.

Some properties offer full accessibility, and some may also take dogs; others may come with hot tubs, or even swimming pools. Whatever your choice – you will be able to switch off and enjoy your Arran time, at your own pace.
