Enjoy a seaside holiday in a pretty traditional listed cottage known as ’The Twelve Apostles’, just a few yards from the beach in the tiny village of Catacol. Each of these historically famous fishermen’s cottages has a different upper window so that when the men were at sea, their wives could light a candle and each man would know which house was signalling.

No 11 The Apostles is beautifully furnished and provides modern comforts yet still retains its original charm and character. (A full refurbishment was completed in 2021.) A window seat in the spacious living room allows guests to enjoy uninterrupted views to the sea and across to the Mull of Kintyre beyond. There is a pretty enclosed front garden, just a few yards from the beach, with lawn, shrubs, pebble path and traditional stone wall. There is seating for guests to savour the magnificent views down the Kilbrannan Sound with its spectacular sunsets. There are three beautifully furnished bedrooms, with bedroom 3, a small room with a built-in, full-size platform bed suitable for an adult or a child and a chest of drawers for storage.

Located on the west coast of Arran in the National Scenic Area of North Arran, this is a much photographed and iconic island landmark offering stunning sea and mountain views, walks and wildlife. The cottage is ideal for walkers, golfers and wildlife enthusiasts, or for those who simply wish to relax in front of the wood burner and nod off to the sound of the sea. It provides a wonderful base from which to explore both the spectacular coastal and mountainous location in the immediate area together with the rest of Arran. Lochranza with the Arran Distillery, golf course, places to eat and drink and the Claonaig ferry to hop across to the Kintyre Peninsula is just 2 miles away. When you return to the cottage, a handy utility room makes the perfect space for storing outdoor gear. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
This property can be booked together with The Back House (UK39112) to accommodate up to 6 guests.
