Sleeps 10

Originally built in the late 1930s when Ballantrae was a thriving holiday village Castlehill has been recently modernised to an incredibly high standard, it retains some of the thirties architectural features and has some simply stunning sea and river views.




Ballantrae Holiday Cottages have seven luxury self-catering holiday cottages for between two and ten people on the south-west coast of Scotland on the edge of the friendly village of Ballantrae in South Ayrshire. There are three stone and whitewashed eco-friendly beach cottages situated right on the sea front with wonderful views out to sea and four riverside cottages on a quiet country lane that winds along the River Stinchar.

Ballantrae has a maritime climate of early Springs and mild Autumns - here you can walk, rest, relax and enjoy the many activities to be found in this wild and unspoilt coastal region of hills and heather. All our accomodation is dog-friendly and the gorgeous beach at Ballantrae welcomes dogs all year round.

The coastline is crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of Ailsa Craig and the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde. The area is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, roe deer, otters and seals and is a haven for bird watchers on the moors and estuary.
