What a beautiful property you have in Quivive!

“What a beautiful property you have in Quivive! Such a high standard of accommodation with terrific views! We had a great weekend celebrating Dad’s birthday and were fortunate that the weather, although cold, was for the large part dry. (The brand new wood-burning stove proved very useful!) Having filled the bird feeders, it was not too long before we had a wonderful array of birds visiting us. We will certainly hope to be making a return to Quivive in the future.”

Fantastic family-friendly cottage with excellent facilities throughout

Trip Advisor Review:
“Really wonderful cottage with pristine facilities – lovely bathrooms, nice large bedrooms, large living and dining area, modern kitchen and conservatory with a sea and mountain view, and all genuinely very clean and fully equipped. Even better than it appears in the pictures. Log burning stove is very nice, and big tv with sky, netflix and broadband was a big bonus. Cannot think of a more comfortable cottage. An additional great thing is the proximity to broddick ferry terminal – a 5 minute drive from the cottage to the queue. Brodick itself has lots of restaurants and Brodick castle has beautiful gardens and views. It’s an excellent base from which to explore the island, of which Lamlash and Kildonnan beaches were highlights.”

Everything you need for a break away

Trip Advisor Review:
“We had a lovely stay in Quivive for the Easter holidays. The accommodation was immaculately clean, very spacious and well equipped with everything you need for a break away, including a few extras! The location of the house is in a beautiful setting and very handy for Brodick’s amenities. The owners were very easy to deal with and the whole process from booking to gaining access to the property was extremely smooth. Thanks again both of you.”

Great family holiday home in an ideal location for exploring Arran

Trip Advisor Review:
“Arran never fails to deliver a great holiday experience for my family. Quivive is in an excellent location with great mountain and sea views, which enabled us to just chill out or easily visit all the local amenities / attractions. It’s also only 5 minutes from the ferry terminal. The property is really nice and has all facilities to keep the family happy. The owners were extremely helpful, and even provided a new cot and highchair when we told them we were bringing our new granddaughter. Having holidayed on Arran many times in different holiday homes, Quivive gets 10 out of 10.”

Loved It !

Trip Advisor Review:
“Just returned home from a long weekend in Arran. Quivive is in a great location, very peaceful and only minutes from the ferry terminal. The house itself was well suited for our large family, with plenty of living space. Well equipped with everything you would need in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as many games and books.
Really impressed!”

House is lovely with beautiful views

“We very much enjoyed our stay in Quivive. The house is lovely with beautiful views. We really enjoyed Arran and were mostly very lucky with the weather. Thank you so much for the welcome note, wine, oatcakes and cheese. The oatcakes were a particular hit with us and I bought several boxes to bring home! We hope very much to be able to go back sometime.”

Perfect house, lovely stay

“We had a lovely stay at Quivive, the proximity to Brodick and it’s amenities was fantastic while still feeling away from the town. Our family loved the garden and the friendly sheep, the house was perfect for us (4 adults and 3 babies). We’ll be sure to stay with you next time we are in Arran!”
