Mill Cottage is situated in the quiet hamlet of Shedog, on the edge of Shiskine village, approximately two miles north of the seaside village of Blackwaterfoot on the west coast of the island. From the front lane the appearance of this 170-year old cottage is typically West Coast - stone-built, single-storey, central porch entrance and steeply pitched slate roof. But, go round to the back and one finds a modern, wrap-around extension that doubles the living space of the original cottage. Internally all is modern: whilst the original building is now a well-finished, two-storey cottage boasting three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a snug living room, the extension adds a garden room with dining area and a long-plan, modern kitchen. Folding glass doors open out on to the large, rear back garden that extends to about a third of an acre; being almost totally under grass, it offers a safe place for the children to play whilst the adults relax.

Arran:
Arran generally, and the west side in particular, is the ideal holiday destination whether looking for the active or for the restful holiday. Within three miles of Mill Cottage can be found two of the seven Arran golf courses, together with tennis and bowling, trout fishing, fine beaches and rock pools. In clubhouses and the local hotels there is good wining and dining at sensible cost, one hotel also having a swimming pool and fitness facilities. For the energetic there is plenty of hill and forest walking, cycles for hire and even para-ascending for the more adventurous! For the sightseer why not visit historic Brodick Castle, the standing stones on Machrie Moor or Lochranza Castle. For a Taste of Arran you must visit Lochranza Distillery and/or the new Kilmory Distillery, the Arran Brewery and Arran Cheese-makers; neither are the indulgences of Arran Aromatics to be missed! For the historian step back in time at the Arran Heritage Museum - perhaps even find your Scottish forebears. All in all, the ideal family holiday destination whatever your holiday aspirations... and, whatever the weather!
