“We had a wonderful stay in Jan's lovely cosy cottage. It is newly refurbished and spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The weather was very bad on the day we planned to arrive, most ferries had been cancelled. Jan was so helpful in assisting us with finding an alternative ferry and ensuring that we made it across to Arran. She was in constant communication with us from the moment the cancellations were announced and very quick to respond. We could not fault her communication or hospitality. Thank you Jan! The cottage is in a great central location with amenities close by in Blackwaterfoot. We particularly enjoyed the coastal walk to the Kings cave (from Blackwaterfoot) and a longer coastal walk from Lochranza where we watched 2 otters for over 1 hour, saw golden eagles, red squirrels and lots of very tame red deer. It was amazing. We would also recommend a trip to the Machrie stone circles (also very close to the cottage).”
Cobblers Cottage is an old cottage in the farming community of Sliddery overlooking the Mull of Kintyre in the Southwest of the Island of Arran. Originally it was the shoemakers cottage in the village, along with the blacksmith, butcher, joiners, bakers, grocers, post office and a school. These days Sliddery consists mostly of houses and farms with one hardware shop called Sliddery Supplies which stocks all sorts for homes, farms and gardens.
“We had a wonderful stay! The place is quiet, cosy and so comfortable. Lois is an amazing host who provided us with many recommendations and made our stay as enjoyable as possible when helping us to plan the best way how to explore the island. We loved the breakfast (including the delicious salmon pate) being ready in the room. Thanks again Lois, we hope to come back soon!”
A beautiful fully self-catered secluded hideaway cottage for up to four people. Set about a mile outside the village of Lamlash, guests can enjoy access to the eight-acre smallholding which includes mature woodland, and that goes right down to the sea. Choose either central heating or fire up the wood burning stove for that proper cottage experience. Dedicated car parking for one car. Both the hosts, Tim and Josephine are professional artists and will afford a warm welcome.Pets by arrangement.
“Lovely renovated cottage in a peaceful setting with spectacular views of Lamlash bay and Holy Isle. Off the beaten track, but close enough to Lamlash amenities by transport if you don't want to self-cater. Thoroughly enjoyed the tranquillity and slept very well! Comfortable beds and all amenities needed to self cater. Everything provided for the use of the log burner which makes for cosy nights in. Tim and Josephine are on hand if you need anything, and were friendly and welcoming. Our dog was welcome too. Local wildlife includes some ducks, chickens and wild birds. Country garden, fields and woodland sloping steeply to the shore which we didn't manage to explore as was too wet when we visited. Would love to stay again as this is a great base to enjoy beautiful scenery, varied walks and the hospitality of locals.”
