The detail

Banlicken is unique because it is both remote and within easy access of everything the Isle of Arran has to offer. Surrounded by heather, with the hills behind and the sea in front, this gorgeous restored croft would be the perfect holiday destination for a group of up to eight adults seeking an idyllic spot to unwind, or a large family gathering of up to six adults and six children. Whilst the house sits in the wild and remote west coast, the interior is contemporary, warm, comfortable and very welcoming.

The kitchen is a cheerful, bright, social hub with a huge dining table and its large range and warming drawer means it's perfectly equipped to cater for a full house. This is a wonderful place to come together for busy breakfasts making plans for the day, and long lazy suppers discussing the adventures you've had with views of the sea to remind you where you are.

The living room is ideal for chilly nights in with a cosy open fireplace, two large soft sofas and plenty of seats for everyone to settle in for a movie night with the 42 inch satellite TV.

The whole house is beautifully decorated with eclectic furniture, warm colours, pictures on the walls and pans hanging from the ceiling, making it feel like a true home-from-home.

There are four flexible bedrooms, each catering to different sleeping arrangements. The first is a master with king size bed, the second has twin beds and the third has an unusual bunk with a double on the lower level and a single on the top which is great for a couple with a child or friends sharing. The fourth bedroom is located in the annexe, called Byre Cottage, and has a king size bed, a bunk and a single, meaning it sleeps five in total. All of the rooms have crisp linens, warm duvets, rugs on the floor and pretty furnishings, and they all offer lovely sea views.

There are also three bathrooms including the main bathroom which boasts a vintage double-ended bath, a shower room and another bath with shower over the tub, meaning no one needs to queue in the morning.

If you're blessed with warm weather you might like to take a drink out into the fabulous garden which is tiered into the hillside with a pretty burn running through it. The patio has a table and seating for 10, and there are garden benches where you can sit and stare at the view of the sea across to Kintyre. There's even a hammock for afternoon naps. Or, why not take a stroll down to the beach through dramatic hillside and a natural woodland?

Banlicken also has its very own play barn, that's a great hang out spot for teenagers with table tennis and sofas for chilling out. The barn is pretty atmospheric too with its ancient stone walls and the remote views.

The Isle of Arran, often referred to as 'Scotland in miniature', has plenty to offer. From hill walking to peaceful sandy bays, fishing to boat trips, climbing or historic castles, there's something for everyone. You'll find plenty of shops selling local produce, a number of cosy pubs, and if you fancy a really great meal, the island has some delightful places to dine out.
