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.

    The Sheiling Location is excelent room enough for 4. The Jacuzi Bath is Wonderful , watching the was in need of some emulsion on walls in certain areas and ,when was the paint work done last it looked grubby and scuffed, it was so difficult to cook a meal with one pan,total lack of good maintenance.holes on walls where heaters should have been, also in the upstairs bathroom sink at some stage had broken and just stuck together, also a gold tap and a silver tap most strange.

    This property has been well upgraded at one time, but sadly has been allowed to deteriorate. During our stay we noticed: Two overhead spots were out, no bulb in downstairs bedroom lamp, the cold tap drips in the upstairs toilet, there is black mould in the downstairs toilet and the shower tray does not drain well, the general state of decor is poor with scuffed, stained and damaged paintwork, the garden is neglected, the front door is VERY stiff and difficult to open/close. Although there are three TVs, they all work on the same channel only, so we couldn't watch a different program to our friends. Each of these points is minor in itself, but added together they take the edge off what could be a great cottage. We enjoyed the jacuzzi but found it hard to get in and out of. Could do with a handrail.

    Lovely house, comfortable, and well furnished (comfortable seating and beds, expecially) and well equipped (only exception being the saucepans/frying pan, which badly need replacing - I'm sure the owners will do this before the next season, since we were there at the end of the season). Close enough to Blackwaterfoot to be convenient, but just far enough away to feel you're off the beaten track. Gorgeous views from the jacuzzi, and despite slightly autumnal weather, cosy house and lots of hot water to warm up with.

    The cottage is much smaller than depicted in the photos and is in need of a good coat of paint and some serious tlc! Internal paintwork dirty and chipped, especially downstairs. Downstairs shower cubicle mouldy and rotting. Weeds growing out of gutters and back garden is overgrown and unkempt. Pots and pans require replacing as they are badly chipped & scraped resulting in segments of black aluminium in your food! Views from the jacuzzi bath are stunning but pump heads in the actual bath need a good clean. Lovely little cottage but not in great shape. Would not go back.

    We had a great stay & hope to return. The bath was amazing & we spent most evenings there looking out at the sunset.

    A fantastic cottage to base a week long break on the island and a value for money indulgence for the two of us. Highlights were the open fire and (surprise, surprise) the west facing 'juicy bath' (you'll have to stay and read the visitors book for an explanation of this reference!)
