About Blackwaterfoot

Blackwaterfoot is the largest village community on the west of the island, and part of the area known as Shiskine Valley. See their Facebook link here. The village is within the parish of Kilmory and is reached either from Brodick over The String Road . This is a scenic drive in either direction or take the lovely coastal route from Lochranza or Lamlash, wherever your starting point lies. You can’t get lost on Arran!

Blackwaterfoot was originally the hamlet that clustered round the harbour and was the port for Shiskine. It was dominated by a huge cairn, which by the mid 1880’s had almost disappeared, the stones being used for houses and dykes. The area was excavated around 1900 and a grave containing a bronze dagger decorated with gold was found. In 1896, as Blackwaterfoot developed as a tourist centre, the Shiskine Golf and Tennis Club, came into being when its unique 12 hole golf course was laid out at Drumadoon.

Blackwaterfoot Sunset

The Beach At Blackwaterfoot

The Beach stretches for sandy miles below the golf course at Drumadoon and draws people from all over the island whatever the weather or season and of course, the sunsets can be spectacular.

This coast offers walks along to the King’s Cave, allegedly the hiding place of Robert the Bruce, and atop the towering cliffs of Doon, the remains of an ancient fort and sanctuary.
