The Old Schoolhouse, Kildonan is self-catered accommodation by the sea on the most southerly tip of Scotland’s beautiful Isle of Arran. The house is owned by a family who want you to enjoy this hidden corner of the country as much as they do. The house is fast developing its own fan base, who return year after year.

Situated in the small village of Kildonan in one of the most enviable locations on the island, with spectacular sea views across to Pladda, Ailsa Craig and across the Firth of Clyde. This historical property was originally a school mistress’s house for over 100 years before being fully refurbished and modernised. Big enough for groups of up to 7 or warm enough for couples to enjoy a home from home escape. The beach is 150 metres walk from the front door.
