19th century cottage on the Isle of Arran with magnificent seascapes across to the Kintyre peninsula

When you stay at The Shieling 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 some of the windows of this early 19th Century semi-detached cottage 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.
The Shieling can be booking independently or together with Achnacarry Cottage to accommodate the gathering of families and friends up to 12 people.

    Lovely cosy cottage. Enjoyed our stay tremendously, open fire in the living room is great and the massive bathroom with jacuzzi is great to relax in at the end of the day and enjoy the stunning view over to the Mull of Kintyre.

    Very comfortable, cosy cottage. Well located with superb views from the lounge and Jacuzzi. Blackwaterfoot 2 min drive away for bakers and butchers, fresh bread every day. Weather was brilliant apart from the Friday while we were packing. Very very quiet place with cows for neighbours, just what we wanted. We must recommend Shiskine beach, stunning as the sun went down. We had a fab week & would love to come back.

    A lovely cottage on a beautiful island, we would definitely come here again. If you're bringing a dog then be aware that the back garden is not secure as the gates to the adjoining property were not kept shut. We had to use the patio chairs for a barrier. There are several small things that could easily be fixed which other people have mentioned on here, but nothing too bothersome to us (who cares if the taps don't match?). I think the saucepans have been replaced. I tried the jacuzzi once but enjoyed it as a huge bath the rest of the time.

    Cosy cottage in lovely location, but it really requires some TLC and maintenance work - ie dripping tap in upstairs toilet. Blocked shower tray and mouldy sealant, loose taps in shower room. Oven doesn't work on fan setting and front door is very difficult to lock.

    This cottage could be lovely but needs ta lick of paint as it is rather tired.
