Cruickshanks Boutique B&B

Located on the Isle of Arran with great views of Whiting Bay, Rob and Nanette have lovingly restored their 19th-century home into a luxury bed and breakfast. The whole process took 2 years as they lovingly and sympathetically retained many of the houses original features. Guest are greeted on arrival with refreshments and some home baked cakes, not to be missed, and are soon made to feel at home with the roaring woodburning stove and relaxing lounge.

Bedrooms have been thoughtfully put together to work with the challenges of sloping ceilings. All the rooms – Honeysuckle, The Whimsical Room and the Pearl Suite – have been finished to a very high standard with Hypnos mattresses, Egyptian cotton and “Snuggledown” duvet ensuring a comfortable night’s sleep.  Numerous thoughtful extras are also provided within the room.

Homemade muesli is an excellent start to the day and this can be followed with a full Scottish breakfast, smoked haddock or Nanette’s homage to her roots in the form of pancakes, maple syrup and bacon.  All this can be enjoyed with great views from the breakfast room.  All food is locally sourced where possible and the quality excellent.
