Description

Spacious 19th century accommodation with seascapes across to the Kintyre peninsula.

When you stay at Achnacarry Cottage you will never want to return to the hustle and bustle of the mainland ever again. The only traffic delays will be due to a few errant sheep! The views from many of the windows of this early 19th Century semi-detached home reveal magnificent seascapes across to the Kintyre peninsula. Whilst staying on the Isle why not take the short ferry trip from Lochranza to Claonaig and discover a piece of Kintyre to add to your memories. One of the most southerly Scottish Isles, Arran encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland but all packaged within an accessible area 19 miles long by 10 miles wide. Your holiday adventure begins on the ferry from Ardrossan with views of Goat Fell, Brodick Castle and the ancient and spiritual Holy Isle. Arran is a fantastic place to see the second largest fish in the world, the basking shark. Frolicking porpoises and seals are frequent visitors too. There are mystical standing stones, a prehistoric burial site, a Viking burial mound and the natural cavern known as King’s Cave which inspired Robert the Bruce. The island has a scattering of pretty villages on Arran’s stunning coastline which are contrasted by a rugged and mountainous interior in the north. This is a natural paradise with sightings of red squirrels, golden eagles, red deer, otters and seals. You can actually join an island safari! If you need inspiration for your picnic, beach barbeque or dinner then Arran offers it all on a plate and in your drinking cup! From jams, relishes, oatcakes, seafood, cheeses and chocolate to whisky and beer you will then have to plan one of many walks on the island! With seven golf courses it is easy to see why this island holds such an appeal for golfers. For adrenaline junkies, Arran offers mountain biking, paragliding, canyoning, sea kayaking, scrambling and more! Achnacarry Cottage can be booked independently or together with Shieling to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    Lovely, in great position, Blackwaterfoot is walkable and is good for hotel and shops. Garden is a suntrap, we enjoyed sitting outside. The new cooker was great. Don't think I would want to be there in the winter, as some of the heating seemed a bit hit and miss, but we didn't need to use it.

    Arran Isle is a brilliant holiday destination, and this cottage in a great location to enjoy all that the island has to offer. It is very spacious, well equipped and comfortable, with a pleasant sheltered garden and lovely view. Our only concern was that the only working smoke alarm was in the "annexe" part of the house, all of those in the main house were dismantled or had no batteries in.

    Positives - Perfect for 7 of us ( 5 adults ) + 1 cat! LOADS of room. Beautiful location and views, everything you need is here - just bring your food and drink! Negatives - arrived in the dark so got lost for a while despite the fact it was so close to the end of the string road. perhaps a sign on the side of the road? Negatives - The Aga in the pics is for show only. The electric cooker isn't big enough to cook for 3, at anyone time, let alone 7. We had to eat in stages some nights as we couldn't prepare everyones dinner in one go. This meant the cooker was on for several hours some nights. Positives ( and Negatives ) - No Wifi and No 3G/4G coverage - good because I got the kids to lookup from the phones and Ipads, bad because I couldn't get the Champions League scores quickly!
