Characterful Self-Catering Cottages
on the Beautiful Island of Arran

Three characterful, stone-built, self-catering properties to let in the tranquil setting of south west Arran.

The Blacksmith's Bothy                             The Hayshed                                The Ploughman's Bothy
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 to get away from the daily hurly-burly - just to relax or do some quiet study, 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 golf course. The new Lagg Whisky Distillery and visitor centre is less than 2 miles away.

Our three cottages, the Ploughman's Bothy, the Hayshed and the Blacksmith's Bothy,  each sleep four people. They face onto their own separate courtyard, for access and parking.  All three properties offer a comfortable, well-equipped and secluded base for your Arran holiday. One large or two small well behaved dogs can be welcomed in the Ploughman's Bothy and Hayshed, at a small charge and only by arrangement at the time of booking.

Children will love the sandy beaches nearby, and there are also two indoor swimming pools on the island, one of them at the Kinloch Hotel, Blackwaterfoot,  just four miles north of Far Horizons.
- or friends holidaying together, who are looking for comfortable and well-equipped accomodation with sublime views.
The ever changing light and the play of the wind on the sea means the panorama outside the cottages never ceases to fascinate.
