Isle of Arran -
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.”

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.

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