Visitor Comments for 2014
We had an amazing week on Arran with perfect weather. Stillpoint is perfect! Very comfortable in an amazing setting and great location. Love the fresh flowers. Our first visit to Arran and we discovered many gems, in particular: the beach at Kildonan, King Cross Point, Glenashdale Falls and Giant Graves. We hope to repeat these delights in the future and discover more with our base at Stillpoint. Elena, Edinburgh (July 2014)
Best place to stay on Arran is Lamlash. Best place to stay in Lamlash is Stillpoint. Best food is the Drift Inn - eat Scottish seafood. Couldn't have had better weather!

Another super holiday at Stillpoint and once again we've had superb weather - don't know where these stories of wet islands come from! Tom and Susan, Midlothian (June 2014)
Stillpoint is a lovely place to stay. Very well equipped and our hosts couldn't be faulted. Ideal for couples. Arran is a beautiful island, so quiet and peaceful, nice places to eat etc.
Margaret and Andy, Perthshire (June 2014)
Perfect! An amazing 2 weeks with absolutely fabulous weather. Stillpoint is a fantastic place to stay, so peaceful..... and the regular visits from the red squirrels were an absolute delight. Arran is a great place to explore, to relax and unwind. Will definitely be back.

As usual time passes too soon in this zen like atmosphere. We have enjoyed being here and of course would love to come back again! Arran has been a wonderful experience, whether hill walking, having coffee at the Old Peir Cafe, talking to people, or visiting Holy Island. This time of year we felt we had entered a Scottish 'rain forest' so lush is everything, plus many unusual butterflies etc.
We love Stillpoint for the care that has gone into it to make visitors comfortable. Waking up in the morning to birds calling, the views form the window became a meditation that will travel back with us to the mainland.

What a perfect little place to spend our first family holiday. An idyllic location and a wonderfully peaceful Island.We wish we had found Stillpoint as a couple many years ago (we would have been regulars. Thank you again for allowing us to spend our first family holiday in Arran.

We loved Stillpoint - the view, the location,the peace and the visits by birds and red squirrels to the deck. Arran is beautiful and relatively unspoilt and very uncommercialised. Would love to come back and do the walk around the coast of Arran.

This is such a delightful tranquil place. Stillpoint is one of the most special places that we have been to on our many travels around the Scottish Islands. Birds are many and two red squirrels passed the window, with many species of trees to watch the movement, chiff chaffs, blue tits, dunnocks, chaffinches, robins and song thrush all in view. Thank you so very much Don and Kathleen for the lovely fresh lettuce and making us so welcome.

Had a lovely stay at Stillpoint - perfect base, comfortable, light, and warm. Enjoyed watching the red squirrels in the trees and we have had some fantastic weather, so excellent walking done. Will recommend to everyone we know who visits Arran.

Thanks for this still place - it's so aptly named!
This might have to be an annual visit.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic week at at Sillpoint. The pictures on the website didn't do it justice. It was really an ideal setting for a week-long holiday for a couple.
You did a fantastic job of making the most of the space. The two burners on the kitchen are enough to cook most meals for two, and I speak as someone who loves food and cooks pretty much every meal from scratch. The storage is well worked out. There's exactly enough room to store the food and clothing that most people would need for a week.
What really stands out in my mind is how the place is always filled with light. It's radiant on sunny days, and when it's chilly, the interior is warmed by the sun. On rainy days, it was almost as beautiful. We enjoyed the main room in the mornings and evenings, and it was nice that it was possible to clear an area on the floor. I was mostly just stretching, but I imagine that people would find it useful to practice yoga, tai chi or other types of movement. I also enjoyed practising music in that beautiful setting.
Thanks for making this available to the public, and thanks for making it affordable, too.

Roddy and Elaine (Lincoln) May 2013
Would just like to thank you once again for the quiet relaxing holiday that we had in your lovely holiday home. We had a fantastic time and saw quite a lot of the island although there is still lots to see.
Hope to come back again soon.

Our return trip to Germany was very pleasant and we are very happy to think of the days in Lamlash.
"Still Point" is an excellent accommodation,the name is ideally chosen and it is truly a place of peace.
We felt very comfortable with you and the walks and views on Arran were fantastic.
Best wishes Carmen and Lutz from Germany July 2013
Many thanks for making our holiday so comfortable. A great place to stay with so much to do right on the doorstep. Hope to return before too long.

We've spent a lovely week exploring Arran and have found the studio an ideal, easy, cosy and comfortable base. Thank you.

As always on our visit to Arran we had a fantastic fortnight that has flown by. The cabin is an idyllic retreat, the best accommodation we have stayed in on Arran on our regular visits to Arran! thanks to Kathleen and hubby for their friendliness and roll on next August when we hope to see you again.
Lynn and Geoff (Yorkshire) August 2013
We have experienced such wonder staying at Stillpoint. The views really were spectacular and surroundings so calming and peaceful. The cabin is perfect and had everything we needed in a well thought out space. Thanks for the home grown vegetable! We honestly can't wait to come back again - this has been a very special holiday which we have loved.
