" Great to return to Arran. We loved the garden. The weather was so terrific that  that's where we spent almost all of our time! Great family BBQ. We all enjoyed the golf - twice  most days! Nowhere can beat Shiskine G.C. We have walked, golfed and rested and will of course return regularly as we have in the last half century! Thanks. "
