Craigdhu Self Catering Cottages, Isle of Arran

Our two holiday cottages — Bushmill and Stable — are situated at the most southerly tip of the beautiful Isle of Arran, which is often referred to as "Scotland in Miniature". There is a nearby cliff-top walk giving magnificent views to the mainland and there is an abundance of wild flowers and birds. Craigdhu is a working cattle and sheep farm and the farm buildings are located at a distance from our holiday accommodation.

Our peaceful area is five minutes by car to the village of Kildonan where there is a sandy beach and hotel. Kilmory village & Lagg Hotel are 2.5 miles further west. Both have good restaurants and lively bars. In 10 minutes you can be in the villages of Whiting Bay or Lamlash with their range of shops and cafes.

From your cottage there is a lovely, short walk out onto the cliff top with views across to the Ayrshire coast and Kintyre and the small islands of Ailsa Craig, Pladda and Sanda. There are many varieties of birds and wild life to be seen in the area

Unspoilt nature, beaches and history

Parts of the farm were designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in April 1986 because of the rich botanical and bird interest.

If you take the track up the hill behind the old farm steading this will lead you to the headland running out to Bennan Head. Here ravens, kestrels and buzzards are to be seen. The vegetation in this area is home to five species of orchid, adder's tongue, carline thistle, wood vetch and narrow leaved everlasting pea. Other interest includes two specific species of butterfly: wall brown and green hairstreak.

You can return to the cottages via the burnside. Here the water margin contains whin, willow, blackthorn, red campion, and a number of orchid species.

There is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument on the farm. This is situated at the end of the track before you start to walk along the headland. It comprises of a later prehistoric bivallate fort (with two sets of defences). It has been fenced to protect it from cattle erosion.

Please do feel free to explore the countryside. We only ask that you do not walk across cropped fields and that you shut any gates you pass through.
