Ian and his team couldn't do more to make us comfortable for our trip. Unfortunately for work but if I was to come for leisure would be the first place on my mind to stay.

Tips:

Very friendly and welcoming hosts, beautiful place from the moment we stepped in and amazing views with the beach just across the street. One of the breakfast i’ve ever had staying anywhere in Scotland! Very clean and cosy too.

Tips:

Closest chippy was in Brodick about 15 minutes away. We were looking out for seals but sadly didn’t see any, hoping for better luck when the weather is better!

Very friendly/helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious and room had everything we needed.

Tips:

This was the perfect location with the nicest bay on the island on the doorstep for dog walkies. It still gets you back into Brodick via Lamlash in 15 minutes for the best road over to the west side of the island. Mara fish bar if it’s open and go talk to Willie at Machire Bay if you’re golfing!

Room was beautiful with great view and coffee machine and en-suite bathroom was great. The shower was quite difficult to get at a good temperature (either very hot or very cold not much in between) & the pressure came and went I’m assuming as other people were also trying to use the facilities. Some of the bedside lights were flickering and buzzing a lot so we decided not to use incase fire hazard. Otherwise stay was great, good value for money & great breakfast. We have stayed here before under different owners and we are glad to be back always.

The coffee pot along the road was open each day during our stay. There was nowhere open to eat in the village on Monday or Tuesday but we did eat at the Shurig on Wednesday evening when it opened. It had a relaxed feel and simple food.

Had a wonderful 2 night stay. The hotel is beautiful, homey & so comfortable. Our room had lovely fresh, calm, modern decor, with a stunning sea view. Delicious breakfast, friendly service.

Tips:

We ate at the Shuric, a short walk from the hotel, on our 1st night, then The Glen Isle, in Lamlash, on the 2nd night. Both excellent & good value. The whole island is worth seeing, but personal favourites are: all of the beaches, Machrie Moor, a stroll on Fisherman's Walk to the castle, coffee & cake at Little Rock cafe.

A wee mention on the site for impaired mobility guests and the amount of stairs to upper floors would be useful. The staff were lovely,never more so than when I had a problem through the 1st night I stayed and they sorted the issue without a problem.The breakfasts were wholesome without the choice of food being overly complicated.

Tips:

The Coffee Pot - about 3/4 mile on your left is a lovely wee cafe with great home baking and quite a good range of food on their menu.IMHO Arran is an island for fit and healthy walkers with full mobility as there is a good range of walks to be had not so much if you have mobility problems.You can traverse the whole island in a car.Not so much to see on the West of this island

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Excellent hospitality. Great breakfast and lovely dinner on the evening we ate in the guest house.

Tips:

We played golf on most days that we stayed and it was a perfect location. Our favourite courses were Whiting Bay, Lamlash and Shiskine, but all 7 courses are worth a visit.The Pierhead Tavern offered great food and service. Also The Drift Inn served delicious food.(both in Lamlash) Local Chinese and Indian takeaways were excellent. Lovely visits to both distilleries on the island.

I would highly recommend staying here . Me and my husband booked 3 nights with our dog Mali . The room was so clean and spacious, decorated beautifully. Usually if we stay in a dog friendly accommodation we kinda expect it to be a little run down , but not in this bed and breakfast. We had the best experience with all the staff , nothing was a bother for them . All the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Ian really is a lovely host and has a excellent team working with him . The breakfast was unreal, I had a full vegetarian breakfast the 3 mornings it was delicious, my husband enjoyed the breakfast also he had full breakfast Scottish breakfast. I have stayed in arran a few times other places but this location and what’s on offer is definitely my favourite so far . We definitely would stay here again . Thank you guys for making our trip amazing.

Tips:

Arran is a beautiful place with so much to offer . We traveled on the 30th December till 2nd January, we booked it all last minute so wasn’t sure what would be on New Year’s Eve etc . So much on new year we had a few options from the locals , everyone was just so friendly and telling us what was on . Next to the bed and breakfast you have scenery looking out onto the ocean and holly island in view it’s breathtaking. You can walk along the bay and do the waterfalls and giants grave , all in walking distance . We visited a pub/ restaurant at the bottom of the road called (MOST) dog friendly and food was delicious, again staff were amazing it also had a snug bar down stairs which dogs could also access. You can take the bus to lambash , pubs ,restaurants etc . Ian also owns the PHT restaurant in lamlash it was fabulous on New Year’s Eve it had a guitarist singer on . Buses were a bit limited due to the time of year but it was all easily explained on the time tables and the drivers are all so happy and relaxed nothing bothered them . The locals in arran are the nicest kindest souls I’ve came across in a long time . Arran has my heart will definitely be back again .

Group of friends of 10 people this was our second visit to the Burlington. Duncan and all his staff are fantastic. Food is excellent, Duncan helped us with everything to supplying bandage for sprained wrist, getting one of our group a taxi for ferry as she had to leave early, letting us use dining room for tea and birthday cake on the Sunday. We cannot thank you enough for a great stay.

Tips:

We used the restaurant MostatEdenLodge on the Sunday which is approx 20 minute walk but food was really good. Bus stop 5 minutes away, and local shop next door. Walks on beach or round to Kingscross can be done straight from the hotel also walk to Glenashdale Falls is nearby.

I really enjoyed my stay at Burlington Guest House. I arrived slightly early but I was able to check-in. My room was exactly what I needed; clean, comfortable with a good shower. Duncan was very friendly. I had an evening meal which was delicious and ordered a packed lunch for the next day. Breakfast was fantastic and set me up for the day of walking I had planned. The guest house is opposite the beach, so the perfect location to relax and get away from everything.

Tips:

Definitely have an evening meal at the guest house, food is delicious. There’s a shop that serves coffee less than 25mins walk away. If you need sandwiches there’s a post office that sells filled rolls or you can order a packed lunch from the guest house.

Highly recommend the Burlington Guest House and Duncan's restaurant there. Nicely decorated, comfortable rooms. Mine had a sea view that was breathtaking out over Whiting Bay. Duncan is a gem, providing personal touches and being an excellent chef. Breakfast was both delicious and beautiful. I would definitely stay here again with my family!

Tips:

Reserve early for dinner at Duncan's. Don't look around. You won't find a better atmosphere or food! Horseback riding at Cairnhouse Stables on Blackwater Beach. Visit Brodick Castle - the property is massive and the setting is to die for. Take the hike back to King's Caves near Blackwater Beach. It's about 30 minutes each way (not the 2.5 hours it says). Brodick itself is nice, but a bit pricey and touristy. I would stick to the rest of the island and look for more wildlife next time. This is a true holiday island destination, not an island for focusing primarily on Scottish history or heritage.

Tips:

We weren't able to have our dinner in the restaurant but they did give us fish and chips outside which was great tip, if you want a meal book a table before you check in. They take booking for non residents and it's a busy place in summer.

I arrived late, around 7:15pm, after detouring during my days activities. Despite being short-staffed/finished for the day, my key had been left out along with breakfast options, meaning I could check in myself without delay, leave my things and make it back out for planned dinner arrangements. This was my second visit, and my room was just as impressive as before, although the added sea view this time made for great viewing of a 5am sunrise.

View from room and restaurant were amazing. Meal in the evening was lovely, caters for all needs - including a fussy eater.

Tips:

Walk up the waterfall in Whiting Bay. Quite steep but worth it. Brewery visits are good, buildings are modern and at Lugg the location is outstanding. Would be great if it was clearer and not typical Scottish weather.

Went for our first trip together with Harley and it was perfect. Thankyou the room was wonderful. The food was excellent and we will be back.

Tips:

Whiting bay is perfect to head either to blackwaterfoot or Brodick. We drove one way one day and drove another the next seeing the full coastal island. Be sure to visit Machrie tea rooms as it’s beautiful.

Duncan met all our special dietary needs and provided great recommendations for local walks and points of interest. The rooms were comfortable and clean! Thanks!

Tips:

In addition to breakfast, try Duncan’s for dinner. I enjoyed two excellent meals and my husband had the gluten-free fish and chips. Best he’s ever had! Hike up to the local waterfalls.

Really enjoyed my stay and would love to return and spend more time on Arran. The Guest House is really warm and welcoming, and the setting is beautiful. The room was great, just a slight problem with the shower, which I spoke to Duncan about, and it's clear that efforts have been made to sort this out to no avail. He was very courteous about the issue, and couldn't be more helpful about everything else,as well.

Tips:

Just to get out and explore the area. I didn't have long enough. I also hope the Calmac ferries are more reliable once the new fleet has been delivered, though this is not your fault. It did put me off coming, but I'm glad I took the risk.

It’s the staff that makes a place special. I have dietary requirements and Duncan made sure that I still had amazing food every night. I will definitely be back to stay at the Burlington. I don’t usually do reviews so that tells how great it was!

Make sure you have a meal at Duncan’s. Bring your credit card as there is so much beautiful art in the galleries! Also visit Zoku of Arran if you like hand made jewellery.

The hotel was lovely and nicely decorated and right on the beach which was great for my two dogs. I was in a single room which was comfortable and nicely decorated and had a huge bathroom. The hotel has a restaurant which served nice food, it was so nice I ate there both nights. As other reviews have said Duncan and his staff go above and beyond to ensure all their customers enjoy there stay nothing was too much trouble I'll definately be back.

Tips:

I enjoyed lunch in the shore cafe not far from the hotel which was also on the beach and had outside seating. The lunch was lovely. I also vised the craft shop which sold wool and hand knitted things among other things. I also did the Glenashdale waterfalls walk which was nice. I really liked the location of the hotel as Whitingbay has a nice beach and nice places to eat.

Lots of walks to do, some quite steep so may not be suitable for those with mobility issues, but equally there are places with flat walks too. Lovely places to eat in Brodick and Lamlash as well as lovely cafes. Almost all of the Isle is dog friendly too.

Lovely guest house with views from front across the Bay, I was in a room at the rear, but the room was adequate and comfortable for my 2 nights. Lovely breakfast ( way too much in fact as my appetite seems smaller) and Duncan was friendly and helpful, it would be great if the restaurant re-opens as not many places to eat in Whiting Bay in the evening and not having a car was relying on buses. I would return though again,

Tips:

I didn't see much of Whiting Bay during the day as was out and about but it's a nice place, a small shop that sells provisions and coffee !!!! Nice walks along the shore and I ate in Most at Eden further down the village which was nice and reasonable, I believe that the other restaurant (not sure of the name) The Shore? opens only late in the evening. Buses are fairly frequent depending on the day and it is possible to go to Lamlash for more choices to eat. I would recommend a car for getting around and then more freedom to stop as missed a lot just going on the bus, Lochranza had nothing open at all but I believe Easter is better there, was a wee sandwich shop only which wasn't open on the day I was there, no hotel, pub or shops, nice views, and few walks, there is a Distillery which I didn't go to. Blackwaterfoot is more bustling with a few shops selling food a cafe at the golf course ( again shut the day I was there) but the Hotel has coffee, and food but you need to pre-book. All in all, is a lot to see and do if you don't expect it to be a busy place and not over commercialised which is good if you like McDonald's and KFC, etc you will be disappointed !!!

We received a very warm welcome at this lovely Guest House. The owner went the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect. The breakfast were delicious and you did need not any more food during the day. The view from our bedroom was so picturesque.

Tips:

There are a lot of walks to do from the guest house. The island has a lovely coastal walk as well as many interesting archaeological sites. If you are feeling energetic Goat Fell is a fantastic walk. Just be aware the ferry service is unreliable.

Spent the new year here - clean, spacious rooms in a lesser-seen and extremely scenic location on the island of Arran. Friendly, helpful staff and a high-quality breakfast in the morning, with effective Covid mitigations in place for optimal safety. Couldn't have gone smoother, honestly.

Tips:

The Shurig/MOST bar 10 minutes walk away, Glenashdale Falls Circular about 15 minutes walk away. Keep a close eye on public transport times, depending on the time of year!

Lamlash Bay Hotel is less than 10 minutes drive and is dog-friendly in the bar area- lovely food! The wee shop near the hotel has some great unusual grocery items, worth checking out.

We had a lovely stay at the Burlington Guest House. Our twin room was really nicely decorated and clean. The bathroom was slightly run down and not to same standard as the room but it was clean and to be honest I think it was still acceptable giving what we paid for the room. It would have been nice to have some sugar and milk in the room for the coffee/tea. The staff member who served us at breakfast was really friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was also really good. Overall we had a lovely stay, thank you :)

Lovely room, felt like a suite. Wonderful views from room, dining room and frontage. Magnificent breakfasts. Staff very attentive and friendly. Easy access to beach (nice to fall asleep to the sound of the waves!) Really nice delicatessen only a few metres away. Very comfy bed and couch :)

Tips:

Whiting Bay much quieter than Lamlash and Brodrick which was good for us. For eating, The Shore in Whiting Bay and Drift Inn in Lamlash are well worth a visit. Gardens at Brodick Castle lovely even in the rain - and look out for seals nearby. The climate is typically mild (rarely drops below 4 degrees). Even in November we had two warm, sunny days and only only one rain, but even that was warm, so pack for rain more than for cold. Lots of trees! Yay! Oh, and lovely swimming in Whiting Bay.

The breakfasts were ample and high quality. Duncan and his partner who cook and serve the breakfasts were both welcoming, lovely and always helpful. We certainly hope to return and highly recommend this great guesthouse

Tips:

The views when you drive around the coastal road around the island are magnificent. The local walk up to Glenashdale Falls and the Giants Graves is beautiful. Lots of good shops and bars within a short drive/walk. And thete was even a seal lolling around on the beach

Very warm welcome with helpful suggestions about how to get the most out of our visit. Delicious breakfast. Lovely room, only one issue was the availability of hot water in the shower/ sink. We were at the very top of the house and the shower went from hot-cold-hot during every use (and at different times of day). I wonder whether there is insufficient pressure and if anyone else runs hot water elsewhere the flow is compromised. It didn’t matter to us but I imagine others would not appreciate cold showers!

Duncan and Katie were fab , nothing was too much trouble and Duncan's knowledge of the island was very helpful. The food in the Burlington was fantastic I HIGHLY recommend the fish pasta bake I really struggled to finish it. It was amazing. We booked the trip for our 37th wedding anniversary (we would normally go abroad)we were not sure what to expect but the scenery was beautiful and the sunset, WOW. We only spent 3 nights on the island,wish we had booked for longer. Only downside was the ferry disruption which spoiled our trip a bit.

Tips:

We visited the kings cave, the giants grave and the glenashdale falls. Make sure you have decent footwear as the paths are rocky and uneven and often overgrown, and take water as both paths are very steep. Well worth the effort .

Tips:

Whiting Bay is quieter than Brodick, which is great if you want some more peaceful surroundings. If you're looking for a better selection of pubs and restaurants, go to Lamlash or Brodick, but remember to book a taxi well beforehand if you're not driving, or you can catch a bus but they are not too frequent, nor do they run that late.

Excellent 2 night stay in a lovely old building with superb views over the bay. Staff could not have been more helpful and the food was superb. We stayed in Room 10 on the ground floor. This large room has a huge triple window overlooking the bay. My wife has mobility difficulties. The room is not advertised as a room suitable for people with disabilities although the room and ensuite bathroom are not too bad in this respect. The icing on the cake would be to adapt the room and bathroom to full wheelchair standards which could be done with not too much difficulty and the provision of an option for a king or twin beds. I would definitely highly recommend a stay at the Burlington.

We absolutely loved the Burlington. Duncan and Robbie were brilliant and made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. We ate in the restaurant on the first evening and we were both blown away by how delicious it was and beautifully presented - excellent value for money as well! Whiting Bay itself is stunning and having the beach across the road was brilliant for our cocker spaniel. We would definitely return in the future - thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Tips:

We did two walks - the Arran costal walk from whiting bay to lamlash and then also the Kings Cave. Both had beautiful scenery but there are a lot of steep sections which may not be suitable for young children or senior citizens

Duncan was a great host, he made us feel so welcome with his warm nature. The food was superb with breakfast included in the price which was of a very high standard. The accommodation suites is great, the rooms are spacious, well furnished with modern decor and presented to a high standard of cleanliness. We were very well looked after throughout our stay and we’re impressed with the customer service experience. We will definitely be back again soon 😁👍🏻

Tips:

We travelled with car which gave us the ability to explore the island more inclusively. We visited for three nights but were able to visit the glenashdale falls (quite a hike with young child however well worth it), machri moor stones, we spent time at whiting bay beach which is on the doorstep of the Burlington, perfect location with children, we stopped at seal car park and seen dolphins and seals before visiting Brodick Castle (again great for kids), mini golf in Brodick was good fun, the Little Rock restraint which is right next to the golf do a delicious chicken butger! (Thank you Duncan for the recommendation!) The heritage museum was interesting and our daughter enjoyed that experience. We also visited Lochranza to pay a customary visit to the distillery (the Lochranza reserve a very good budget buy and delicious to drink) we bought a gorgeous limited edition and some gorgeous gifts to take home to our family. Overall a great place to visit. We absolutely fell in love with the island.

Where do we start?! We couldn’t recommend The Burlington enough. From start to finish in every aspect we loved the place. The staff were most welcoming on our arrival and throughout our stay. The food was of good quality, quantity, well priced and beautifully presented. We stayed on the ground floor with sea view, modern decoration and a good sized room. We had our dog with us too who was also made to feel very welcome. We cannot wait to be back at the Burlington, thank you Duncan and to all of you lovely staff too! Xx

Tips:

For those who haven’t had the pleasure of Arran Whiting Bay is a good location with a couple of places to eat out as choice, although I’d highly recommend staying in for food! A few shops, putting green and a beautiful long beach.

The place was very nice and clean and the staff was fantastic. The breakfast was very delicious. I was in a single room where the bed wasn't long enough (I'm 6,4) but I had a very good sleep. There was only one thing I'd change and that is the movement sensor light and fun switch in the bathroom. During the night it would have been better I can switch on/off the light manually as I had to wait like 20 min the light and fun to switch off (bit noisy) But everything else was perfect I enjoyed my time there so much.

The guest house made us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay. The room and facilities where we'll looked after for the age of the property.. The food was exceptional and would regard as 4 to 5 class quality. Duncan the owner who is also a traditionally trained chef made remarkable dishes and the desserts were delicious. Looking right out the sea the views are stunning and the best location for a tranquil stay. Our party cycled around the island which is about 56 mile and Duncan gave us all the info we needed to do this. Although we didn't take this up we were offered packed lunches. Ideal spot to stay for walkers and cyclists and I would definitely go back. Short trip from ferry at Brodick and all the island is accessible from the property. My only constructive comment is that if the property had a bike store at the back to store bikes it would be easier to store after a long ride and sort the bikes out the next day. This could easily be achieved. Fantastic and enjoyed arran.

Tips:

Distillery is not far away and the town of Brodick. Cycling walking and swimming. Goat Fell Arrans highest peak 20 mins away. Food and bars locally and bike hire in Brodick. The scenery is stunning and will be an unforgettable experience

They offered to keep our room available so we had a place to stay if we had to stay another night. Duncan is an excellent chef and we enjoyed the homemade meals during our stay. We will stay at the Burlington Guest House again on our next visit/.

Fantastic short stay. I chose room 9 with a gorgeous sea view. Large double bed with your own wee apartment with sofa! And £15 extra for my pup per stay!!

Tips:

Winter time, so place quiet, Bay Stores has got lovely fresh produce grown locally in whiting bay.

The Location of this Hotel is Beach front, but it's the inside that matters. The warm welcome from Duncan and Katie is just Lovely, Do not eat anywhere else, because the food Duncan Produces is Manna from Heaven, Absolutely Delicious, no exaggeration, Absolutely Delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Burlington.

Tips:

A must is Brodick Castle, Arran Aromatics, The Chocolate Factory, The Gift Shops in Brodick, Corrie Harbour, The Fabulous Lamlash to name but a few must see this Stunning Island has to offer. X

This is a lovely, comfortable hotel in a stunning location opposite the beach. It is quiet and relaxing. The host, Duncan, was extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The dinner was so good that we ate in the hotel restaurant two nights in a row.

Tips:

The Arran art Gallery in Whiting Bay for a beautiful collection of art. Local walks to the Glenashdale Falls and to the Kings Caves at Blackwaterfoot. Wonderful lunches served at The Old Byre/ Cafe Thyme at Machrie.

I gave 4 for facilities and that is though the single room and smallish would appreciate a comfy chair rather than sitting on the bed, apart from that very comfortable and enjoyed watching the red squirrel in the back garden. Duncan's breakfasts are fab.

Just enjoy, Whiting Bay is so peaceful.

A pleasure to stay in for 3 nights. Duncan met us at door with courtesy and a smile. Nothing was too much bother.

Tips:

During Covid 19 you can always feel safe at Felicity’s in Whiting Bay or PierHead Tavern for lunch or dinner. Best book to ensure entry as each table is thoroughly cleaned between sittings.

So thankful for the availability of evening meals which were excellent. Some cosmetic thoughts - bathroom towel rail not switched on so difficult to dry towels. Light censor could leave you in the dark in the middle of the night or stay on... 'Wardrobe' area too near the tea-making facilities. Grateful for central heating as evenings were chilly. We loved the room as did Betsy,the dog!

Tips:

Be prepared to enjoy the natural beauty of the island, wonderful walks, easy parking, glorious views, Brodick Castle grounds. Beware not many eateries open due to 2020 restrictions especially on Mondays.

Good, friendly and efficient service from management - advice and recommendations regarding touring information always available. Rooms at the front of the house have views over the sea.

Douglas hotel nice for drinks/cocktails/ lunch/dinner. Castle, arran aromatics, and cheese shop worth a visit and if you’re fit enough, a walk up goat fell. just a beautiful island.

Good size room with ensuite, clean and covid safe. But what really makes the stay is the manager Duncan who is also the chef. Nothing is too much trouble his knowledge of the island is invaluable. He was welcoming and gracious at all times and very kindly fitted us in for dinner when we had not booked. He told us when we rang, Arran was all of Scotland in one island. He was not wrong. We will be back.

Eat in At Duncan's at least once, good food and good value for money. Visit Glenashdale water fall and Giant's graves just outside the village and to see the Seals at Kildonan. Try Goat Fell if you are fit and adventurous.
