We stayed here for 3 nights earlier this month and were delighted. Clean, comfortable and warm, excellent breakfast and very friendly owners. Our ensuite was compact but we were impressed that they had managed to fit in a couple of shelves - so often there's nowhere to put things down - it's details like this that really make a difference.

We have just spent four nights at Viewbank : Mal and Julie made us feel so welcome, and were very friendly. Our ensuite room had a lovely view over Whiting Bay, and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were delicious, all made with local produce, and our hosts could not have been more helpful. Thank you very much!

We spent a night at View Bank. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Malcolm and Julie gave us a warm welcome They were helpful in booking somewhere for us to eat and getting up extra early so that we could catch our early ferry in the morning. We would certainly stay there again. Arran is a beautiful island.

Lovely 3 night stay at this great B&B. Hosts were very welcoming and informative in terms of knowledge of the Island. Room was lovely and the view to die for - very comfy bed. Delicious breakfasts each morning set us up for the day. Highly recommend Arran Island and in particular this little gem - very restful break.
