Castleside Croft is a beautiful semi-detached cottage which enjoys views across the Firth of Clyde towards Pladda and Ailsa Craig. As the name suggests, the cottage is beside the old ruins of Kildonan Castle (no access to the castle), giving a unique view of the castle and the sea. The living room has patio doors which lead out to the south-facing garden. Outdoor furniture is provided so guests can enjoy the sea views whilst relaxing in the sun. Inside, the bedrooms are traditionally furnished. There is a bunk bedroom on the ground floor, ideal for children, and two bright and spacious bedrooms on the first floor. The double bedroom has a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden, with castle and sea views. You will find a beautiful beach just a 5 minute walk away, where seals are a common sight. Castleside Croft is in an ideal location for families and friends wishing for a relaxing seaside holiday. Hotel bar and restaurant 5 minute walk.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Castleside Croft! We have stayed in many cottages on Arran (as well as camping!) – this was definitely our best “cottage” experience! We thought the house was lovely and very well equipped. It was warm and clean with beautiful views and a gorgeous garden. The lovely bed linen was a luxurious bonus. We loved reading the books in the cottage and, had the weather been bad, we would have appreciated the multitude of games available. Having the little utility area, with outside toilet and “booze” fridge, made the experience even more comfortable. Absolutely nothing to criticise – we would love to come back again. It was so quiet and peaceful! Thanks again – a brilliant experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castleside Croft– clean, warm and appeared to have everything to ensure guests comfort! It had a clean, welcome feeling as soon as we walked in! We have left a booking for the same week next year - looking forward to it.

Having been to Arran before, Kildonan is one of the best places to stay on the island. A brilliant week with good weather. The cottage is in a perfect location with everything you could wish for. Plenty of room for four people. Superb views from the main bedroom and the garden. Having breakfast watching the red squirrels in the garden. Easy access to the beach. Regular sighting of the resident otters, once while eating our evening meal at the Kildonan Hotel, along with the other wildlife in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

Having stayed in this beautiful cottage twice now I can’t recommend it enough. Ideal location for my two boys and myself, lovely great beach, garden, views, wildlife and the cottage itself is first class. Will be back next year. Thank you.
