Cairnsaigh is a delightful self-catering property situated in the idyllic village of Whiting Bay. The property is well maintained and offers spacious and very comfortable living areas. The living room looks out towards the sea and has French doors through to a spacious kitchen/dining room. This gives you the option to close off the living room for a cosier atmosphere yet still allows the light through, or you can open them up to enjoy an extended living space. Patio doors open out from the kitchen/dining room to the rear patio which is a sun trap through the day and red squirrels frequently visit and play on the patio grazing on nuts in the squirrel feeder. The proximity to the beach allows guests to walk across the road from the property where picnics can be enjoyed on the beach with fabulous views of Holy Isle, or look out for pods of dolphins and porpoises which can be spotted - on occasion they’ve also been seen from the living room window on calm days. It’s just ½ mile from the Sandbraes area of Whiting Bay which has a great kids play park and direct access to the beach. Keen walkers can enjoy a forest walk to the fabulous Glenashdale Falls accessed beside the house. Beyond the falls lie a network of many miles of great walks over hills and through forests along forest tracks. It is within walking distance of all the amenities in Whiting Bay, which include a bar, restaurants, coffee shop, post office, newsagents and bowling green. There is also an 18-hole golf course.

We found this to be perfect for our needs. Nice quiet location in pleasant surroundings but not too remote.
Very comfortable and spacious and facilities all fine enjoyed our stay immensely and will be booking for next year for sure. Only complaint was outer front door would not lock. Many Thanks to All.

Another relaxing stay on Arran. House very comfortable, clean and had a home from home feel. Great location with added entertainment from the local wildlife – birds, red squirrel, rabbits and even a hedgehog. Would certainly return.

Had a great family week in Arran. Cottage was lovely and comfortable and had everything we required. Two areas I would recommend for improvement are - firstly that cleaning staff remove all the cobwebs around walls/ceilings. And secondly, that the garden could do with a tidy up. Side entrance for bikes overgrown with bushes, and weeds around the front door. First impressions would have been better but as I said, once inside, it was ideal.

My family and I enjoyed our stay on the beautiful Isle of Arran. The house is in a quiet location yet convenient for all needs; it is clean, well maintained and well equipped. We loved seeing the red squirrel on the fence and the rabbits running around at the front.

Second time in Cairnsaigh. Location and house ideal for us as a family of five with the lower bedroom used as a granny flat for my mum. Lovely sea views to front and view of the pathway to giants graves to the rear. Kitchen is very well equipped and extras like fairy liquid and kitchen roll gratefully received.
