The bustling town of Ayr with its sandy beaches, excellent shops and restaurants is only 6 miles away, whilst Culzean Castle is just 12 miles. Close by are golf courses for every level. Shops 2 miles.

Large living room with open fire and bay window overlooking the loch. Spacious kitchen/dining area with laminate floor. Utility. Single bedroom. Separate toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. What a great house in a beautiful setting! We hope to come back. Nov 2012.
  2. Martnaham Bothy is a wonderful place to be. Its location and surroundings are the most peaceful and beautiful that we have ever experienced. On the down side this year, we felt that the drinks tumblers, cups and general cutlery had dwindled, leading to shortages. Other relatively insignificant but nonetheless relevant items; only one tea towel, no salt in dishwasher so we bought some, no dishwasher tablets, no wash up liquid. I am aware that it is not the owner’s responsibility to provide these items, but even a "starter" amount would help. April 2012.
  3. A lovely cottage and location. Maybe a little secluded for some but we love it! March 2012.
  4. Good furnishings, roomy, wonderful views, good parking, very peaceful setting, well-equipped kitchen, good bathroom/toilet facilities, warm house with easy to use heating/hot water system and heated towel rails, comfortable beds. (Caretaker was on holiday during our week.) Aug 2010.
  5. The property was large and very comfortable, with all the required amenities. Delighfully isolated, however quite a distancee from shops or a pub. July 2010.
