The Lodges – A tranquil escape in a beautiful, rural setting

There are six charming self-catering, Scandinavian-style pine lodges, with the current owner limiting accommodation to four of the six lodges at a time.

The timer-framed, timber-clad lodges are mostly situated on an elevated position on the sloping ground to the south of the site, with a pleasant outlook through large picture windows. The lodges all consist of large open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas, two bedrooms (one set up as a double and the other as a twin), and a bathroom. The kitchens are all appointed with wall and base cabinets and appliances, whilst the living areas have excellent built-in storage. The bedrooms have thermostatically controlled heaters, and the bathrooms all have showers over the baths.

Externally, the lodges all have their own private sheltered veranda with patio chairs.

The lodges have all been well-maintained to a high standard and are well-insulated, with double-glazed windows. All furnishings are to remain in the lodges. They also have their own septic tank which is emptied approximately every three years.

The private, secluded site is nestled within lovely natural woodland, offering a tranquil haven that is sure to appeal to tourists and visitors to the island. It is situated south of the Monamore Burn and set on rising ground within a distinctly mature woodland setting on the edge of a traditional patchwork of small agricultural fields. The rural scene is characterised by traditional farmhouse buildings, some of which have been converted into holiday lettings. Although fully contained within the mature woodland there are views to be enjoyed across the Monamore Burn to the open grassland farmland beyond and the iconic Ross Hill.

The site has a car park for residents and staff, with a small storage shed adjacent used for ground maintenance equipment and general storage. The storage shed also has a laundry and activity room for guests, containing a washing machine, tumble dryer, DVD’s, books, indoor and outdoor games and beach essentials. 


Ideal for those looking for a ready-made business opportunity on the popular Isle of Arran. The rural site enjoys a tranquil setting nestling within the mature deciduous woodland along the banks of the Monamore Burn, yet lies just a 15-minute stroll from Lamlash and a 15-minute drive from the ferry terminal at Brodick – an excellent location that appeals to tourists and visitors to the island.

The site is accessed by a private vehicular track crossing over the Monamore Burn from the Ross Road. You arrive in a very generous open car park with adequate parking and manoeuvring space. The access is some 200m from the Dyemill Forestry track giving access to walking and cycling routes and a good hill walk to Urie Loch. The Ross Road also provides access across the island arriving at Kilmory on the west side; this route is enjoyed by many walkers and cyclists.
