We are foodies from America and came on the recomendation of our friend a scottish chef. Many thanks for the recomendation. After a warm welcome we feasted on local game and seafood. Particular highlights included fresh scottish muscles steamed in a zesty Thai curry and local venison cooked to perfection with seasonal vegetables and a devine grattan. After all this... More

We stayed at the Blackwaterfoot lodge, only a couple of days after it had re opened with the Black Grouse bar and restaurant and it was lovely. The residents lounge, the bar and the restaurant have been recently redecorated and very stylish, with real fires burning and a warm atmosphere. We were entirely happy with our room, but we understand... More

My husband and I took many photos of this historic lodge, which has been a hotel for over 100 years and still looks the same from the outside, though it's been lovingly maintained and updated inside. Blackwaterfood village was totally charming after our visit to the standing stones on nearby Machrie Moor. We I loved hearing the clip-clop of horses'... More

Wonderful welcome from the hosts; a peaceful, calming and soothing environment; indeed we slept very well and had a scrumptious breakfast. An absolutely lovely place to stay on the beautiful island of Arran and thoroughly recommended.

This is near the sea and the hotel which is the only place to eat for miles around. The hostess helpfully suggested booking a table and that was useful. The breakfast was lovely. Room clean and comfortable. Recommended.

A charming B&B, within walking distance to the beach. The owners bent backwards to make me feel at home, together with my trip companions. The room was nice, with a large bathroom. Only thing missing: a desk. The common rooms are spacious and cozy. Breakfast is just great, and there were occasions where the landlady cooked for us - a... More

We spent three nights here recently, and really enjoyed our stay. Situated in a beautiful spot on Arran, rooms large and comfortable with large ensuite. The owners were so hospitable and helpful and it was nice to be able to have a few drinks in the bar in the evenings after a meal down the road at the nearby hotel.... More
