“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed January 28, 2019 for a stay in January 2019

We have just returned from a fantastic week end staying with friends at mill burn cottage, Ruth was waiting for us on our arrival and showed us around the house and explained about things we needed to know, she also left us some lovely Arran oatcakes and some Arran white cheese which were very nice. The house is very homely and cosy. There is also plenty of leaflet's and information about things to do and places to visit. The shop's in Brodick are certainly worth a look. Our friends used the pool at the best Western hotel in blackwater foot with their children and enjoyed it while we were on shiskine golf course which was a challenge as it was very blustery. We hope to return to Arran and the cottage again soon. Thank you for a fantastic holiday house. Regards Fiona

“An amazing private retreat”
Reviewed January 7, 2019 for a stay in January 2019

We were extremely impressed with the Mill Barn as it proved to be an ideal retreat for a couple of days. Ruth was an ideal host who greeted us warmly on arrival and could not have been more helpful.

The property is located far enough away from amenities that a car (or bicycle) is probably a necessity if you're not an avid walker but the local shop is only a few minutes drive away and is well provisioned.

We spent our day visiting the Machrie Moor standing stones which are a few minutes drive away followed by a 30 minute walk. This is well worth the trip.

The property has everything we could have needed in terms of tools and utilities (especially the kitchen) and was more than large enough for the two of us. The rates were amazing even given that we were not nearly filling the house and we would happily come back either ourselves or with friends.

As an introduction to Arran, we couldn't have asked for better.

“Great location, perfect cottage”
Reviewed October 9, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Mill Barn was ideal for a long weekend of walking. The location is ideal, near to Blackwaterfoot and on the bus route from Brodick. The cottage itself is wonderful, spacious but cosy at the same time and perfect for our group of 7. We loved the kitchen and the upstairs living area and the four bedrooms were all very comfortable. Ruth was very welcoming and we enjoyed the oatcakes and Arran cheese which she left. We'll definitely be back.

“Clean, comfy and well equipped”
Reviewed October 1, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Shiskine is a pretty little community 5 minutes drive from a stunning beach at Blackwaterfoot. The Isle of Arran is a beautiful island, more especially when the sun shines as it did when we were there. Ruth was very friendly and approachable and Mill Barn was a clean, comfortable and well equipped house. A plus point was all the information you could want, to visit places, even printed off details of walks to take with you. A thoroughly enjoyable stay for 4 adults plus dogs.

“Summer holiday on Arran”
Reviewed August 23, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Mill Barn is a lovely spacious cottage in Shiskine. There were seven of us and still plenty of space. Ruth the owner was extremely helpful. She contacted us a couple of times to make sure everything was ok and to let us know re bin collections etc. Everything we needed was in the cottage and there were plenty of leaflets about Arran too. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you.

“Excellent Easter weekend break on Arran”
Reviewed April 5, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Mill Barn is a very comfortable base for exploring Arran which I would happily recommend. Ruth was helpful in making arrangements and left some delicious local cheese & oatcakes for us to try on arrival.

The beds were comfy, the lounge warm and sunny and the kitchen is very well equipped except no dishwasher - not used to washing up for 8 but we managed for 3 nights!

Arran has so much to explore - beaches, waterfalls, woodlands, caves, ancient stones. Mill Barn is well placed and easy to get to. We ate at Kinloch Hotel one evening and had a very good meal.

All in all a wonderful family weekend on a beautiful island with great weather (cold but bright) and we hope to return.

“New Year in Arran!! ”
Reviewed January 2, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Just home from 3 fantastic nights on beautiful Arran, staying at the fantastic Mill Barn, Shiskine. Our party of 6 adults and 1 child had a wonderful stay and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Mill Barn is a stunning place to stay, so modern and well kept but retaining a lovely, cosy quality. Superb facilities within the house and a great lay out, extremely comfortable, very clean, faultless! Ruth, the owner, was incredibly friendly and welcoming. All in all an excellent experience.
