“Excellent, friendly and very clean.”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The house is situated up in the hill overlooking Brodick and in the distance you can look at the ferry crossing from Arran with excellent views of Goatfell and the decked patio and patio doors allows you to have a peaceful and relaxing time. I hoped that this would be safe for the my 1 and 3 year old and it had much more like garden,geese, hens and 3 lovely cats. the inside of the house had lots of space and every utensil needed so I would recommend buying food if your staying for 2 weeks. lesley and her family where very helpful and got us some sausages for the bbq.
We took our bikes and a trailer for the kids but left them in a safe area at the bottom of the hill.
3 places to visit I recommend the Ormidale hotel for lunch.
The holy Isles and monastery at Lamlash.
The little garden centre just past Brodick primary. The cafe has the cheapest and good food just £2 for a double.
we will return and next time for longer thanks Lesley.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a shame you couldn't stay longer but hopefully you will next time. Looks like you only met 3 of the 8 cats! Yes, Merlin is certainly very safe for children being far from any roads and although we have a pond, it is safety covered. It was lovely to meet you all and hope next time the midges will stay away........fat chance.lol.

Thank you for your lovely review! It will be great to see you again next year. You will be very welcome. Make sure you book the main boat and not the wee one next time! Hopefully it should sail!

“An excellent stay”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had an excellent week staying at Merlin Cottage. Well equipped and spacious, with the added bonus of visiting cats and free range chickens and geese - even one that can untie your shoe laces. Lesley is a great host, lots of local information, and help where needed. (And she cooks a tasty rhubarb crumble too). Lots to do on the island for walkers, bird watchers, and others. Will love to go back.

Many thanks folks for your excellent review. Looking forward to you coming again. More rhubarb crumble? Or perhaps other fruits will be ready next time!

“Fantastic and peaceful location”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is great near to Brodick village but in the countryside with fantastic views. The accommodation is spacious and very well equipped. The hens, geese and cats are an added bonus as are the fresh free range eggs.

Leslie and Dennis are great hosts: friendly and attentive. We would recommend this to anyone.
