This B&b exceeded all expectations! Our room was lovely, very comfortable and modern with an amazing seaview. Mary was so helpful and friendly and the breakfast was delicious! Would highly recommend Ellangowan to anyone visiting Arran - Whiting Bay is a gorgeous location :-) we will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely stay at a very reasonable rate...

It was a treat to be looked after by our hostess Mary. She had thought of everything to make our stay as splendid as it was. The views over the bay were stunning and the rooms were gorgeous. I really recommend her yogurt with oatmeal apple and honey that was served with our wonderful breakfasts. I cant wait to visit...

Spotlessly clean couldnt fault it. There where no animals let alone dogs. Plenty of birds dinning at a well kept bird table. Mary couldnt have been more helpfull if she tried. Will definatly be returning.

Booked B&B 2 weeks in advance after reading previous reviews on tripadvisor. On arrival we were impressed with location and view. However, after entering the property we were hit by the stench of wet dogs. Mary led us up a dirty (not vacumed, covered in dog/animal hairs) stair to our bedroom which was nicely decorated with a beautiful view. We...

Enjoyed a great long weekend at Mary's Ellangowan Bed & Breakfast. I booked in after reading the reviews and it certainly didn't disappoint, quite the opposite, it was better than expected. Ellangowan is sitiuated in the lovely Whiting Bay and the beach is quite literally a stones throw. The views from the house are splendid, the breakfast is sublime and...

The views of the bay are excellent, the homemade food is delicious, the welcome warm and friendly, and the bathroom is just what you need after trekking around Arran, a choice of power shower or hot bath. It's very near the bus stop, and one can get on the trail very near there. The room was spacious, and provided with...

Very comfortable B&B in Whiting Bay. Room was lovely - bathroom (not ensuite) was very clean. Mary was an excellent host and the breakfast was fantastic. Quick walk down the hill onto the main road along the beach to the Coffee Pot - good for lunches and the Eden Bar for dinner. Good circular walk to the falls.

The reviews about this place dont lie ! It is fantastic value for money. Dont be put off by the fact it is not en-suite. The large bathroom and separate WC are just across the hall and there only are 3 bedrooms so you wont be sharing with loads of people. Mary is just lovely, she couldnt do enough for...

I am the 'other half' of Bagpuss. He's pretty much said it all. Mary was a real delight and the room was amazing - the views over the balcony (accessed just outside the room) was exceptional. Arran seems to be reshaping itself as a 'foody' paradise and with lovely small carefully run guesthouses such as Ellangowan, it's easy to see...

Me and my partner are just back from a 2 night stay with Mary at Ellangowan. The double bedroom was huge, it and the bathrooms were very clean and extremely comfortable and there was a large balcony just outside our room which gave a spectacular view over the bay to the Ayrshire coast. Mary was a real delight - friendly,...
