About Us


“Cooriedoon” is situated in Whiting Bay, 8 miles south of Brodick.  Built in 1900, it started life as the Whiting Bay Hotel, and in 1988, after an extensive interior renovation it re-opened as Cooriedoon Nursing Home. In 2002 it became a Residential and Nursing Home. It was established by Celia and Sandra Butler and has had a proud history, as the testimonials show.

An elegant sandstone building, it is set in its own grounds and commands a position on the shorefront, thus enjoying panoramic views of the Firth of Clyde and the Holy Isle.

The temperate climate from the Gulf stream makes it an ideal place for retirement – a large percentage of the population has retired here in order to benefit from the tranquillity, beauty and less harsh climate.

The Home is registered with the Care Commission, offering continuity of care for elderly people who are still mainly independent but would like more company and security through to those who require full nursing care. It is the only Home on the Isle of Arran providing Nursing Care thus eliminating a move should dependency needs increase.

Accommodation is of a high standard, with bedrooms and public rooms all tastefully furnished.
The beautiful public rooms benefit from large windows with wonderful garden and seascape views.  
Outside we have extensive patio and garden relaxation areas with lawns and water feature.

There are single and double bedrooms, most with en suite facilities and sea views. Residents are encouraged to bring their own small personal items, such as, a favourite armchair, TV, DVD/video player, music centre, footstool, ornaments, bookcase and pictures, in order to give their room a more familiar feel. Every room is linked by Nurse Call System and a lift gives access to the upper floor for those who cannot manage the stairs.

We have always striven to make Cooriedoon a home away from home, a happy caring environment where families and friends can truly relax when visiting residents. As a family-run home we are aware that support is vital not only to the residents, but also to their families.
