From our arrival with a warm greeting at the door from Colin and been looked after from there by him and June we had a lovely,but short stay.Whilst there we found Lilybank had a great atmosphere,built on our hosts,the place itself,the little extra touches and the location.Certainly a place to stay.

Tips:

It is difficult to comment on this other than Lamlash has the necessary amenities for a holiday area,with a nice Loch side walk and eateries.

The owners couldn't have been more welcoming. They catered for the needs of my elderly parents with poor mobility and their ground floor room with walk in shower was perfect. Plenty choice at breakfast which was delicious. Gorgeous location with stunning views from our room looking over the Holy Isle and Lamlash Bay. Would go back.

Tips:

Handy for all facilities nearby and on the bus route. Not much of a drive from ferry terminal.

Colin and June were most helpful and pleasant from initial phone contact through to and during our stay. Excellent breakfasts set us up very well for each day.

Tips:

Our group was there for golf and walking and Lilybank was an excellent base for our activities. Both the golf and the walking were highly enjoyable. Among suitable restaurants, the Glenisle Hotel, immediately adjacent to Lilybank, was very good for evening meals.

Excellent in every way. We have stayed on several occasions over the years and would not dream of staying elsewhere. If June and Colin cannot take us because they are full, we don't go!

Tips:

Weekly bus ticket is great value. Golfers can enjoy a weekly green fee ticket for just over £100 for 7 days golf. Enjoy the deer at Lochranza when they come down to see you putt!

Tips:

The Lamlash bay hotel and pierhead bar were fantastic for food. The lilybank breakfast was fantastic as well and set you up for the day. A gentle drive around the island is a must. If you time it right you’ll see umpteen seals. We saw plenty of red deer around Lochranza golf club and of course the crazy golf at Brodick is not to be missed

Liked our warm welcome, and easy relaxed atmosphere. Well done to all the team, looking forward to next years visit.

Tips:

Lamlash Bay Hotel, lovely food, and good service. GlenIsle Hotel again, lovely food and good service. Coast Restaurant, Whiting Bay, does a mean coffee and lemon drizzle cake, yum. A visit to Arran cheese factory is a must, and next door Arran aromatics, they can be found in Brodick. The walk from Lamlash to Brodick over the hill, the view when you reach the top is well worth the steep climb.

Lilybank Guest House exceeded our expectations. Hosts were friendly, helpful and very professional. The guest house is immaculate, beautifully and tastefully furnished.Facilities are first class - the guest lounge is comfortable and relaxing. Our room had a sea view, was equipped to a high standard and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, beautifully cooked and with individual table service. The hosts definitely go that extra mile to accommodate guests!

Tips:

The guest house is situated in the small village of Lamlash and faces the sea. Parking is excellent. Shops and restaurants nearby - all of a high standard. Regular bus services and within easy reach of the Ferry Terminal. Beach is sandy and safe for children. It is essential to book the ferry from Stranraer in advance if travelling by car! We had a wonderful short break and look forward to our next visit to Lilybank Guest House.

The room and en-suite was beautifully presented and the view directly across the water to Holy Island a pleasure to wake up to. Breakfast and June’s easy banter included all guests in warm and friendly conversation. Thank you for your hospitality!

Tips:

Lamlash is a wonderful location away from the bustling crowd of Brodick but still close to plenty of activities. We enjoyed the Heather Queen festivities on the foreshore. June and Colin directed us to plenty of things to do, places to go and golf courses to play on! Best meal was at the Lamlash Golf Course!

Great place to stay. Our hosts went the extra mile to help store our bikes and dry our wetsuits. The front double room with sea view was spacious and the bed really comfy (firm mattress). Good to have access to a guest lounge and fridge. We really enjoyed our stay and are looking to go back.

Tips:

Book a table for dinner as there’s a short supply for the weekend nights. The Brodick castle is currently closed for renovation but the walk outside it was pleasant. Swimming in the bay was fab as was the cycle round the island

Everything was lovely, June and Colin were great hosts, very helpful. Everywhere was spotless, rooms, beds breakfasts excellent, a very relaxing atmosphere. Lounge warm, cosy and homely. Lovely views from bedrooms facing the village green and safe car parking a bonus. Very impressed and would return again.

Tips:

Had a meal at The PHT nearby which was very nice, varied menu, tasty. Did try The Lamlash Bay hotel but busy, reservation needed (was mid-week too). I believe the Pier Cafe was good for daytime snacks. There are lots of pleasant villages if out in the car, Arran Foods & Kitchen shop in Lamlash a good place for gifts, chutneys, jams etc. Brodicks Fiddlers excellent for lunch. Otters and seals can be spotted on Kildonnan beach. The Coffee Pot in Whiting Bay very good for meals and snacks.

Colin and June are excellent hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Lilybank is perfectly positioned both within Lamlash and for exploring the island more generally, with most of the best spots for visiting and wildlife watching within easy reach. The views out across to the Holy Isle are stunning and the breakfasts kept us going all day.

Tips:

Pay a visit to the local church, make sure you eat one night at the Pierhead Tavern and if you’re there for the wildlife ask anyone and everyone local for tips. Worked a treat for us!

This is a lovely wee B&B right on the shore opposite Holy Isle. Very easy to get to from Brodick for those coming without a car and walking distance to places to eat, supermarket and some gorgeous views - whether seaside, or heading up into the hills nearby. View out of our room was just fab. Bed was comfy and room nice and clean and nice touches with fridge space available downstairs and wee tray with tea/coffee etc. So, great location and pleasant space to be in, but Colin and June were best of all. We were made to feel very welcome and both really went out of their way to make our stay that wee bit more relaxing and convenient. Would very highly recommend and hope to go back sometime.

Colin and June are the perfect hosts. You are made welcome the moment you arrive with a tour of Lilybank and it's facilities. The Lilybank is perfectly placed to tour the island whether on foot or by car. The rooms are cosy and have everything you require. There is a residents lounge which you can use any time. Colin and June have provided a fridge where there is milk and small jugs to take up to your room for the tea and coffee facilities and also if you buy anything that needs to be kept chilled until you leave. On our first evening we bought a bottle of red wine and sat in the lounge watching TV and gazing out to Holy Island, so relaxing. It's been 20 years plus since we last stayed at the Lilybank and all I can say is as perfect as the last time we stayed.

Tips:

The Glenisle Hotel next door to the Lilybank serves exceptional meals a little more expensive than the average but well worth it and the staff are amazing. Also, the Pier Head Hotel is worth a visit.

Tips:

The Pier head tavern is a lovely pub, and the meals are also very good. With entertainment at the weekends. It's advisable to book a table at any restaurants on the island, as well as the Pier head tavern. Buses are very busy and don't always run to time. Arran is a lovely island to visit.

The house was lovely and comfortable and we felt quite at home. Breakfasts were perfect and we had a great choice. All in all we had a perfect stay and would highly recommend Lilybank.

Tips:

The highlight for us was the tour of the island with its many spectacular views. The Arran aromatics is well worth a visit and we bought more than we meant to but came away well pleased. The Arran cheese factory is also a must.

This B and B is brought to life by the lovely Colin and June who made us feel so welcome.

The breakfasts were delicious and we liked being able to use the lounge in the evening to spend time with our family. Thank you so much!

Tips:

Book your ferry at the same time as your accomodation, we didn't and had to travel much further to use the non bookable ferry. Glenashdale Falls and Giants Graves a great walk and beautiful views from the top. Fab Indian Takeaway in Lamlash. Don't be put off by torrential downpours, beautiful rainbows are your reward!

There is a residents lounge and also a fridge for residents which is very useful. Fresh milk is provided to use in your room which we thought was particularly good. Breakfast was served in a lovely sea view room. There is a good choice and everything was cooked to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Tips:

The Pierhead tavern which is almost next door has very friendly staff and serves good food at reasonable prices.It does get busy though so it's best to book if you want a meal. We liked the fact that dogs are not allowed where people are eating.The Pier cafe in Lamlash serves very good homemade food, again at very reasonable prices.Also the Lochranza Hotel is very hospitable.We enjoyed scones and excellent coffee there when our ferry was delayed. It was a warm and cosy refuge from the bad weather!

Tips:

It surprised us that you really need to book a table for restaurants. Be early to book. When relying on the buses for transport this more or less steers the day. It appears that you cannot count on finding a table in a restaurant in the place that you currently are during a walk. Arran is great but if you have the time go to the mainland and visit the Highlands (North and North-West). Above Loch Lomond the scenery is stunning!

Run by a lovely couple, Colin & June, who are always keen to engage in conversation and offer tourist advice. They both have the place running like wee sweetie and go out of their way to make everyone feel warm and welcome and are an absolute credit to the island! The fantastic breakfasts served are gorgeous! Try the haggis with the cooked full scottish breakfast, you will love it! One other great aspect about the dining room, is the fact that there is no music playing. This makes for a great atmosphere and encourages conversation between guests. Always pretty booked up, so get looking and booking early! One not to miss!

Lilybank is a pretty, extremely comfortable and cosy place. Everything there is first class and as usual you can notice it in the small details. Colin and June are the most friendly, kind, helpful and wonderful hosts. We had a lovely time and I can't recommend Lilybank strong enough.

Tips:

Arran is beautiful all over. We travelled as a couple, moved around the island in buses and were mainly interested in walking and spotting and photographing wildlife. Our favourite walks were to Glenashdale Falls, and around Lochranza Castle and Brodick Castle. We spotted seals and otters in Lamlash bay, seals in Brodick, deer in Lochranza, and very very briefly a red squirrel in Brodick Castle gardens. We'll definitely come back to Arran as 4 days weren't nearly enough!

Tips:

A good few places to eat and drink. The Drift Inn does great food and cocktails. Great location for people with mobility issues as the walk along the bay is nice and flat.

A lovely, comfortable B & B in the perfect location. This Guest House is run by an experienced and very friendly couple, who do everything to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Tips:

The Pierpoint pub/restaurant, just a few steps along the road, offers good value meals at realistic prices, as generally we found evening food was expensive and lacked fresh choices on the islands we toured. Highly recommend Wineport bistro bar at the foot of Goatfell for snacks - really generous, freshly prepared food (soups, sandwiches etc)

The room was brilliant, the breakfasts were out of this world and the location was really good. We really enjoyed staying with Colin and June, who were the nicest people you could wish to meet. They run an excellent establishment.

Tips:

We ate at the PHT which was just a few yards from Lillybank and enjoyed our food there. We were able to park our car at the back of Lillybank and walk all around Lamlash. Colin and June can advise on anything to do with Arran and very helpful with their advice.

We felt we were very well looked after. The breakfasts were excellent. June gave us good advice on walks to take. We enjoyed them all and we got to see seals at Kildonan which I wanted to do. The little extras were really appreciated. Having the use of a fridge and being able to get fresh milk. Bottles of fresh water in the room each day. Being able to borrow books about the local walks. Also we had a lovely room with a superb view of Holy Isle. THANK YOU.

Tips:

The café at the Pier is very good. Each night we ate at The Drift Inn as we loved it. The food was excellent and the staff were all lovely. We love walking and Arran is the place. our time was limited but we did two long walks at Glenashdale falls and Kildonan Beach plus a couple of short walks around Whiting Bay and Torrylin, all lovely. We'll be back to see more.

So grateful to you both for such a warm welcome and for being so accommodating before, during and after the Arranman race. Lilybank Guest House had THE best location and was perfect in every way. Your rooms were lovely, the breakfast delicious and the living space ideal. We really enjoyed our visit to the island and Lamlash was a great base for exploring and walking as well as a lovely environment to sit and look out to sea.

Tips:

Excellent meals at both the Glenisle Hotel next door and the Pierhead Tavern up the road. I would recommend both. Wonderful walk up Goat Fell with views to die for - fairly arduous, but an easy route to find from the Arran Distillery next to Brodick Castle. Brodick Castle grounds (NTS) are well worth a visit, especially the lovely walled garden.

June and Colin did their utmost to ensure we had the most enjoyable stay. June was full of great information about places to see and what to look out for. Colin dished up the best breakfast and went out of his way to help us settle in.

Tips:

A ferry to the Holy Isle is a must. We spent a whole day there, walking round the island and climbing the hillsl. A most memorable day. The Glenashdale Falls are beautiful, and combined with a visit to the Giants Graves makes another great day out. There are at least 4 very good restaurants within easy walking distance. We tried them all!

We stayed only for one night but were given a very warm welcome by our hosts Colin and June. The room and the beds were comfortable and the shower roomy [the bathroom was fitted out to allow disabled access, with grab rails and shower stool]. In the morning we had an excellent breakfast chosen from a quite extensive menu.

Tips:

The view from the front of the guest house looks across the bay to Holy Island. We were lucky to arrive on a glorious evening, which did much to enhance our experience. Several local restaurants are within easy walking distance, one being next door.

I could not recommend this guest house more, and I have been to many such establishments aimed at walkers. Service is exceptional, from little extras in the room that really add to your comfort, such as electric blankets, extra heaters, to the excellent knowledge of Jane and Colin, which helped us make the most of our stay. They simply cannot do enough for you. Rooms are lovely, immaculate and turned over to a very high standard. Guests are made to feel very welcome and at home. There is also a lovely lounge with log fire provided. We has an excellent, memorable stay and would definitely return.

Tips:

The Glenisle next door does amazing food. Lilybank has a fridge for the use of guests, which would have been helpful for us to know prior to our stay, as we considered bringing food to make sandwiches. Great little extra. Definitely pick the brain of the owners to help you make the most of the island - their knowledge is invaluable.

A very professionally run guest house in an unbeatable location, with an emphasis on warm welcome with a personal touch. Our room was small, but with a certain charm, and a simply priceless outlook over Lamlash Bay and Holy Island. I thought the price we paid was pretty fair, and would recommend it to anyone visiting Arran.

Tips:

The small, quaint Glen Isle hotel right next door to the Lilybank is a great place to eat. The food is very good indeed and the staff are as friendly and attentive as you are likely to find anywhere.

Very friendly and welcoming. Service and breakfast excellent. Excellent efficiency in replying to interest and booking. Room was very clean and had all we needed. Lots of helpful info about the locality.

Tips:

Fiddlers was excellent - food superb and live music was brilliant. The Wineport was very good also as was the cafe and pottery in Mauchrie. Walks can be weather- dependant but scenery beautiful.

guest house was exceptionally clean. breakfast had plenty of choice. Joan and Colin were very friendly and could not do enough for their guests

Tips:

We ate evening meals at lamlash bay hotel food was lovely and they do an early bird menu if u dont want a big meal both menus had plenty of choice. Take a tour round island it is beautiful. there are also lots of places to visit and plenty of trips from harbour for fishing or sightseeing tours out at sea or if you prefer go out on a fishing trip or a trip to holy isle.

A bit small, especially shower. Steep stairs to our room. Colin was very helpful, giving us advance advice about booking ferry crossing, and good advice about eating venues and sights in the area. Self service of juice and cereal might be considered

Tips:

Listen to Colin for local knowledge.

The hospitality was excellent would definitely use this guest house again, had room overlooking Lamlash Bay with beautiful view. June and Colin were such a friendly couple nothing was a problem.

Tips:

You can travel around the island by car in a day then next day go to the things that had extra interest. The views were spectacular. We particularly liked Blackwaterfoot.

Great view from room over bay. Good parking facility behind, though rather narrow approach. Hosts friendly and helpful.

Tips:

Glenashdale Falls a good walk; many other attractive looking ones, but we didn't have enough time on Arran. Creelers Restaurant, just beyond Brodick, looks a good bet, but booking essential and we didn't try that soon enough. Brodick Castle is of course a must.

Colin and June made our stay at Lilybank one of the best holidays we have had in Arran. Everything was perfect. Most enjoyable break.

Tips:

Drift Inn was good for evening meal. May have to wait a while if they're busy but worth it. Trip on the local buses round the island good. Gives you a taste of the other villages.

Cheery welcome by June, with a very clear introduction to all the facilities in the house. Good touch, fridge with fresh milk and a place to chill yr wine or beer. Tremendous views from sitting room and our large airy bedroom overlooking Holy Isle. Good breakfast menu well presented and with perfect eggs, sausages were no bad either. Thanks Colin, we were set up for the day.

Tips:

Excellent gardens at Brodick Castle, very interesting local museum, many and varied walks for all fitness levels all within easy reach from lamlash. Great characters on local buses ,circular routes around the island means you can leave car behind. A very relaxing place to be for all the family.

This was our second stay at Lilybank (and hopefully not the last!)Very friendly place, very knowlegable about what to see and (very importantly) where to eat. Lamlash is a good centre, only three or four miles from the main ferry port, and a "nicer" place than Brodick.

Tips:

Glenisle Hotel and Bistro next door is always good: Drift Inn said to be good - but heaving the night we tried to get in. Machrie Golf Club on the other side of the island did excellent cakes and sandwiches (and a good cuppa)Visitor Centre at Lochranza Distillery worth a visit as are Brodick Csstle and Country Park, Brodick Heritage Centre. Road surfaces not too good in many parts of the island.

It was our first visit to Arran and we felt we were very well placed for visiting the rest of the island. June and Colin were most accommodating and friendly; we couldn't have asked for more than they offered us.

Tips:

Our best meal out has to have been at Fiddlers in Brodick, where eight of us met together in the evening. The service was good and the staff friendly. It was a great atmosphere with the live music; real foot tapping stuff! So many places to explore we have to return. Loved the falls at Glenashdale, the standing stones at Machrie Moor, and birding all over the island.
