The perfect base for your holiday
Hamilton Cottages occupy a picturesque rural setting in the hamlet of Shedog, about
a mile and a half from Blackwaterfoot on West side of the Isle of Arran. We are about
9.5 miles from the main Ardrossan to Arran ferry terminal at Brodick and about 17
miles from the smaller Kintyre ferry at Lochranza.
Shedog is a perfect base to allow you to make the most of your self catering holiday
on Arran. We are ideally situated for cycling, walking, bird watching, golfing, fishing,
pony trekking or just relaxing! Within a few miles there are some of Arran’s best
amenities and attractions.
In the picturesque harbour village of Blackwaterfoot you will find a beautiful beach,
village shops, hotel (with bar, restaurant and swimming pool), a riding centre, tennis
courts, all weather bowling greens and Shiskine golf club which has one of Arran’s
most popular courses.
The Balmichael Visitors Centre with it’s shops and tearoom lies about 1.5 miles in
the opposite direction.
Machrie Moor with its impressive standing stones, Machrie golf course and Machrie
beach are all within a few miles of us as is the lovely “Kings Cave” walk at Drumadoon.
If all this sounds too exhausting bring a good book (or select one from the cottage
library) and just relax in our gardens. Arran is the perfect place to slow down and
just enjoy the relaxed pace of island life.
Pets are allowed in our self catering cottages by arrangement only, if you do wish
to bring your dog please see our page on self catering for dog owners by clicking
on the “dog owners” tab on left.

Self Catering Holiday Cottages on the Isle of Arran
Our self catering holiday cottages are finished and maintained to the highest standard
and we have tried to ensure that they are equipped with everything needed for an
enjoyable self catering holiday on the magical Isle of Arran.
Is your holiday in Arran celebrating a special occasion with friends and family?
Or are you booking with a group of others, perhaps a walking club?
With the addition of our large games room our self catering cottages are particularly
suitable for block bookings by groups.
Groups like walking clubs or other parties who may wish to book all three cottages
are free to make use of the room for evening social gatherings. Some groups have
converted it into a “Bistro” to enjoy evening meals together by bringing in the patio
tables and chairs and moving the games tables aside. Please ask us for details if
this is of interest to your group, or if your are interested in using the room as
a small function room.
