This extended detached bungalow enjoys a scenic position in the pretty coastal village of Lochranza and offers a versatile home for families, holidaymakers, or as a rental, with two/three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple living areas. The charming double-fronted property benefits from tasteful interiors, a private driveway and detached garage, and delightful burnside gardens promising hill views.
On entering the home, you step into an airy entrance hall with neutral décor that continues throughout the home. A bay-fronted living room leads off the hall, comfortably carpeted and arranged around a focal slate fireplace. Next door, a formal dining room provides convenient direct access to the kitchen. The south-facing kitchen is appointed in a timeless country style, with natural pine cabinetry, a granite worktop with a breakfasting peninsula, and a Rayburn range cooker. An integrated oven, an LPG hob, and an integrated fridge are also included, whilst an adjoining coordinating utility room (with garden access) provides space for a freestanding upright freezer and washing machine. Neighbouring the kitchen and enjoying windows to three sides is a wonderfully bright sunroom capturing unspoilt hill views and opening onto a dining terrace and the garden beyond. Also found within the home are two double bedrooms, one of which is extended by a bay window. The principal bedroom benefits from a bright en-suite shower room. A large loft offers excellent potential for development and adding value, if desired and subject to planning permission. Finally, a classically-styled family bathroom comes replete with a WC-suite, vanity storage, and a shower-over-bath. The property is kept warm and efficient by an air source heat pump system and full double glazing.
Outside, the manicured gardens include lawns, well-stocked borders, two sheds, and a secluded terrace for alfresco dining and relaxing whilst taking in the picturesque surroundings. A gated driveway and a detached single garage provide multi-car parking.

Lochranza is thought to be the most scenically attractive of Arran’s villages and is sheltered by the surrounding hills. The village focal point is Lochranza Castle, which sits on a shingle spit. On the southern side of the loch, other attractions include the Isle of Arran Distillery, which began production in 1995, the large population of red deer, golden eagles, seals and otters and a 11-hole golf course. There is a ferry terminus that allows quick access to the stunning West of Scotland via Claonaig. Kintyre here we come ! The village has an active local community, post office, surgery and the ‘Stags’ restaurant, which is renowned for excellent food. The Lochranza Hotel has been purchased by the local community (December 2022) and has just re-opened (May 2023). Primary schooling is available at the nearby village of Pirnmill, with secondary schooling in Lamlash.
Brodick (Arran’s main town) has two larger Co-Op supermarkets and a full range of professional services. Brodick is the port from which regular sailings throughout the day, serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne, lead to the mainland at Ardrossan. Commuters and travellers now benefit from Road Equivalent Tarrif (RET) ferry fares, which are substantially lower than before. Ardrossan has a main line rail station, with trains to Glasgow that connect with the ferry times, and is approximately 30 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Prestwick International Airport is 16 miles to the south of Ardrossan, with Glasgow International Airport 24 miles east of Ardrossan.
