Isle of Arran - Blackwaterfoot


Blackwaterfoot is a village on the west coast of the Isle of Arran, located at the foot of the verdant Shiskine valley.  It is the main centre of population on the west coast, popular with visitors for its picturesque small harbour, and the renowned 12-hole Shiskine Golf Course, alongside the splendid mile-long sandy beach running out to Drumadoon Point.  Pony-trekking is available locally, as well as great coastal and forestry walks, with abundant bird- and wildlife.  Local points of historical interest are the King’s Cave and the Machrie Stone Circles.”

Far Horizons

Just one of our properties

Tel: 01770 870295

At Far Horizons, we have four characterful, stone-built, self-catering cottages to let, in the tranquil rural setting of south-west Arran. The properties are located on Ivy Cottage Farm, one of Arran’s traditional sea-farms, on a hillside above the Kilbrannan Sound some four miles south of Blackwaterfoot.

The three smaller cottages, each with spiral stairs and sleeping four, face onto their own separate courtyard for access and parking; the larger Lighthouses, sleeping seven, faces westwards to Kintyre and has ample parking to front and side.

Blackwaterfoot Lodge

Tel: 01770 860 202

Our B&B is named after the village in which it is situated. It's a stone's throw from Blackwaterfoot's picturesque harbour and a five minute stroll from the long and wide sandy beach bordering the unique 12 hole links of Shiskine golf course, one of the top 100 courses in the UK.

Blackwaterfoot is more Hebridean in character than Arran's east coast, wilder and lonelier, with stunning sunsets across the sound of Kilbrannon and the Kintyre peninsular. It's a good base for exploring the island - all buses go to Blackwaterfoot - at the junction of the three main roads. The village amenities include a post-office/general store, garage, newsagent, butcher and baker (no candlemaker though), art gallery, hairdresser and restaurants at the golf-club and the nearby hotel.

We are open from late March till October. Free Wi-Fi.
