We stayed as a family of 4, including 2 teenagers, at Mcaras View for a week in May 2019. The lodge is immaculate and in a beautiful setting located approximately a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk outside Blackwaterfoot on the western side of Arran. The lodge is superbly equipped with everything you will need for your stay. The only thing we needed to take were our own towels. It is a real home from home and really don't think the photos justify how nice the lodge is. It's in a quiet and relaxed setting with gorgeous views across the valley. The outside decking with table and chairs is a real sun-trap. There is lots of walking/biking to do in the local area. There is a lovely beach at Blackwaterfoot, a local hotel with a swimming pool & bar available to non-residents. There is also 2 bakery type shops, post-office/grocers, harbour shop & butchers in the village along with a play area for young children. Horse riding stables are also close by. We would highly recommend the lodge for a holiday and hope to return for a visit again in the future.
