Characterful Self-Catering Cottages
on the Beautiful Island of Arran

Two characterful, dog friendly, self-catering properties to let in the tranquil setting of south west Arran.

September 2023 to March 2024
The Tait family have been welcoming holiday makers to this beautiful corner of Arran for over twenty years. We have now begun an exciting project to extend and  improve our cottages. Our aim is to have completed these renovations by Easter 2024. Although we are not currently open for online bookings, please feel free to contact Jim if you have any questions about your 2024 holiday or to make a provisional booking.
For peace, rugged beauty and clean sea air, this little corner of the Corriecravie valley is truly one of Arran's best-kept secrets. It's ideal for anyone wanting a staycation away from the daily hurly-burly - just to relax or to walk the dog, play golf, watch birds or paint seascapes. For the more adventurous there is a rocky coastline to explore with some interesting volcanic geology, a history of shipwreck, caves, sandy beaches, an Iron Age burial dun and a local seal colony.
The sunsets are stunning, the storms are thrilling and on a clear night, the stars will take your breath away.
We are perfectly located in the  commanding yet secluded location of Ivy Cottage Farm, originally one of Arran’s traditional brae-top sea farms. We are nestled on the south west coast of Arran, between the historic Lagg Inn and Blackwaterfoot with its beautiful beach, shops, hotel and the world famous 12 hole links Shiskine golf course. The new Lagg Whisky Distillery and visitor centre is less than 2 miles away.

We have two cottages, the Ploughman's Bothy which sleeps 4 people and the Hayshed which sleeps 6. They face onto their own separate courtyard, for access and parking.  Both properties offer a comfortable, well-equipped and secluded base for your Arran holiday. One well behaved dog is welcome per property  at a small additional charge and only by arrangement at the time of booking. The pictures below show our cottages before the extension work started. We'll post new images as soon as we can.
