The Dougarie Estate is situated in the north-west quarter of the Isle of Arran on the west coast of Scotland. This traditional Scottish sporting estate offers a range of self catering holiday cottages and houses, along with activities, including golf and fishing, to visitors.
Self catering holiday cottages are on the west side of the Isle of Arran and are available all year round.
Dougarie Estate dates back to the mid 19th century when the Duke of Hamilton chose to build his summerhouse here - their main residence was Brodick Castle. Dougarie Lodge was built in 1865 as a shooting lodge for the 11th Duke of Hamilton. Various houses, cottages and outbuildings were added over the years.
The Estate was acquired by the Gibbs family in 1972 and they remain in residence at the lodge all year round. Dougarie Lodge can be seen from the road at Machrie and holds a garden open day once a year.
