About Us

At Blackwaterfoot on the West Coast you will experience a superb expanse of winding golden sand to wander along and play in. This is a popular spot with holidaymakers in summer who come for the outstanding views towards the Mull of Kintyre and picturesque harbour. The village has a small selection of shops and is home to the Kinloch Hotel. Shiskine Golf and Tennis Club is also found in Blackwaterfoot, with a 12-hole golf course and two all-weather tennis courts. Nearby Drumadoon Point is home to Arran’s largest Iron Age fort, and the King’s Cave is said to have been the refuge of King Robert the Bruce, where he was inspired by the spider’s endeavours to spin a web. Moorings are operated by the local community. A donation towards maintenance is welcomed. An honesty box is available on shore .
