Viewbank House is a 19th century Victorian former farmhouse that has been tastefully converted and extended into a traditional family run guest house, whilst retaining all it's original character, charm and features.
From it's elevated position over Whiting Bay, it enjoys superb panoramic views across the Firth of Clyde and Holy Isle to the Ayrshire coastline taking in both Troon and Turnberry on a clear day.
A short stroll of less than half a mile brings you to the beach and the main village of Whiting Bay, with it's varied facilities and shops including Art Gallery, Post Office, Newsagents, Village Store, DIY store, Pharmacy, Pub and local Bistro.
The village is also well served by the island bus routes, though we are more than happy to arrange to collect you from the ferry with prior notice.
Viewbank House is the ideal tranquil, peaceful and secluded location, without being too remote, for those relaxing "get away from it all" short breaks allowing you to fully unwind.
It is also the perfect base for a more extended holiday to explore the hidden treasures of the island.
We welcome Walkers and Golfers, with Whiting Bay golf course just a short stroll away – we are happy to book advance tee times – please ask about discounts and special offers for Viewbank residents when booking.
As Viewbank is the nearest accommodation provider to both the local Whiting Bay Golf course and the Glenashdale waterfall, you can simply leave your car in our car park and enjoy the 'walk' (see photos down below). We can also help you plan your day; what to see, and where to see it.
Viewbank has off-road car parking for up to 10 cars.
Malcolm & Julie with their combined experience and background of working in the Management Consultancy and Customer Service sectors offer an exceptional level of hospitality from initial booking and arrival greeting to your departure.
Many guests return year after year, with Viewbank holding many special memories.
We look forward to meeting you and extend a warm and friendly Arran welcome to all our guests to Viewbank House
