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.
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.
Where do I start with this place! We had a fantastic time at Ruth's house and she was very welcoming; our arrival gift was lovely (thank you, Ruth). Everything was made clear when we arrived which meant we could enjoy our stay. It was a very homely place that was perfect for us and our friends (4 adults and 2 children).
Location is great and very close to a lovely beach and butcher at blackwaterfoot. We had a lovely walk along the coast here which ended on the golf course. Our toddler was amazed by some of the golfers taking their shots! There was also a little play park which was nice. It is about a 20 minute drive from Brodick when you drive over String Road which was very easy. A very nice location as a base to explore the island.
The house itself is just lovely. It is very well laid out and we particularly liked the mezzanine - Very spacious. The beds are very comfortable too. I was so impressed with how well the house was equipped. I even managed to make my husband a birthday cake with the two silicon cake tins!
We will definitely be back here if possible and would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to visit Arran.
Well appointed comfortable holiday let.
Plenty of room for our party of 6 adults.
Good location for either exploring north or south of the island and only 25 minutes from Brodick along the String Road.
