CAN I BRING MY DOG(s)?

Yes! We accept 1 dog per cottage. We take a £50 damage deposit per dog which will be returned after your stay. As we have free range livestock (chickens) and we are surrounded by farmland dogs MUST be on a lead at all times when around the property. Unfortunately our chickens have been attacked by normally well behaved dogs which is traumatic for everyone so we ask dogs are kept on a lead for everyone's peace of mind.   Please see our terms and conditions for full info

DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?

This is up to you however we would strongly advise it in case you have to cancel for any unforeseen reasons or there are any ferry or travel disruptions. 

 

HOW FAR IS THE FERRY TERMINAL?

The ferry terminal in Brodick is 15 minutes drive. Lochranza ferry terminal is 35 minutes drive.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN FERRY TICKETS BE PURCHASED? 

The summer timetable (Easter-October) is normally released in February and the winter timetable usually released in September. Keep checking the Calmac website for updates!

WHERE IS THE NEAREST PUB?

The Kinloch hotel in Blackwaterfoot (2.5km) is our nearest pub.

WHERE IS THE NEAREST SUPERMARKET?

There is a well stocked village shop (A&C Cameron's), a bakery and a butchers in Blackwaterfoot or the nearest supermarket is in Brodick where you will find 'The Big Co' just a 100m or so before the ferry terminal or 'The Wee Co' opposite the Chinese Takeaway by the putting green. Both are open until 10pm 7 days a week.
