Dog friendly historic holiday houses sleeping 12 on a working estate, for coastal family get togethers on the Isle of Arran

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Towers and Bothy at Dougarie Estate, Isle of Arran, sleeps 8-12 in 6 bedrooms.

Sleeps 8 to 12 in 2 houses:
The Towers sleeps 8
The Bothy sleeps 4

Newly renovated, this superb property in a unique location creates a wonderful place in which to create your ultimate Scottish escape with friends or family.

This 19th-century tower house has been transformed into a luxurious holiday home full of history and romance. Set on the west coast of Isle of Arran and built in 1875 for the Duke of Hamilton, this historic property is in a prime riverside position within the parklands of the impressive Dougarie Lodge. Surrounded by beautiful countryside there are stunning views across the sea.

This delightful and extremely stylish self-catering house accommodates guests in great comfort laid out over 3 floors. The grand arch entrance, thick castellated walls, original slate roof and arrow-slit windows add to the quirky charm of this house. The stylish kitchen is perfect for making family meals, with double glass doors opening into a large sitting/dining room creating a wonderfully sociable space; gather for meals around a table seating up to 12. Afterwards, enjoy long evenings in front of the open fire. French doors open out onto the garden. Fantastic bedrooms are spread over 2 floors, 3 with en suite showers as well as a separate bathroom.

The highlight of this property is definitely the roof terrace, with its fantastic views across farmland and over the Kilbrannan Sound towards the Kintyre Peninsula - a lovely garden at the rear has a picnic table perfect for a BBQ.

Climb the steep stone steps from the tower courtyard into the Bothy opposite. A semi open-plan living space in neutral tones is next to a well-equipped galley kitchen. A cosy open fire will keep you warm on chillier evenings. The 2 snug bedrooms – 1 superking and 1 king-sized – can both be arranged as twins upon request making this a convenient property whatever your group make-up.
