Enjoying a stunning location beneath the imposing heights of Goatfell in the picturesque coastal village of Corrie, this attractive former farm steading has been sympathetically converted to create four self-catering cottages and has been successfully run as a holiday letting business for a number of years. Each enchanting sandstone cottage, tastefully renovated to include the amenities of everyday living, boasts sympathetic modern upgrades and open plan living while retaining its own unique charm and character. All nestle within extensive, scenic gardens, enjoy uninterrupted sea views and come with private parking. If desired, new buyers could also separate the four units into individual title deeds to utilise each cottage as they see best.
The Steading offers wonderful open plan living space accessed from an entrance vestibule. The impressive dual aspect living and dining room is defined by timber flooring and exposed beams and enhanced by a handsome sandstone fireplace for cosy log fires in the winter. This traditionally styled reception space features a stunning spiral staircase to the upper floor and a spacious designated dining area highlighted by a large roof window. The country-style pine kitchen, with rear garden views and access, incorporates a freestanding electric cooker, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge and provides space for a dining table and chairs. The ground floor is completed by a double bedroom with adjoining dressing room, and a contemporary bathroom with a white three-piece suite with shower-over-bath. The second bedroom is peacefully located on the first floor.
The Barn’s welcoming entrance hall, with timber staircase to the first floor, is accessed via a glazed front door with the sleeping quarters on the ground floor and the living space on the first floor. Upstairs, the stunning open plan kitchen, living and dining room is flooded with light from three roof windows and fronted by doors to a balcony yielding panoramic views of the Firth of Clyde. Contemporary grey kitchen cabinets add a stylish element and incorporate an integrated cooker, ceramic hob, and extractor, plus space for a freestanding washing machine, fridge, and dishwasher. The ground floor hallway leads to two south-facing double bedrooms with tranquil garden views. Bedroom one is accompanied by an en-suite WC with vanity handwash basin. A modern bathroom with white three-piece-suite and shower-over-bath, completes this delightful cottage.
The Byre’s peacefully located side entrance opens into an inviting hall with a ceramic tiled floor. In the open plan kitchen, living and dining room, French doors provide access to the west-facing rear garden. Clever styling creates a cosy cottage ambiance, and the congenial setting is enhanced by relaxing garden views. The kitchen space includes dark wood cabinets, a freestanding cooker, fridge and washing machine. Currently set up as an office a versatile room provides scope for a variety of uses, and a bathroom with three-piece-suite and shower over bath completes the ground floor. A timber staircase leads to the galleried first-floor double bedroom, which benefits from eaves storage, recessed downlighting, and two large roof windows.
The Stable is accessed through a glazed door leading directly into the open plan kitchen, living and dining room with floating timber staircase to the first floor. Here, exposed stone walls, original timber doors and quarry floor tiles add charm and character, whilst the country-style kitchen enhance the cottage ambiance. A wide breakfast bar offers a lovely focal point for socialising and dining and the carpeted lounge area is the ideal setting for relaxing. A utility cupboard discreetly houses a washing machine and fridge. A bathroom fitted with a three-piece-suite and shower-over-bath completes the ground floor. Upstairs, an airy double bedroom is illuminated by two large Velux roof windows and further benefits from walk-in storage.
The cottages are double glazed throughout. The Barn and The Steading are kept warm by oil-fired central heating while The Byre and The Stable enjoy the comfort of electric heating.
Externally, the extensive three-quarter acre grounds are mostly laid to lawn and contain many exotic species of mature shrubs and trees. Each of the cottages enjoy private outdoor seating areas, as well as a gravelled driveway for private parking.

The Steading is situated in very enjoyable rural surroundings, located in the coastal village of Corrie, on the eastern side of the popular west coast of Scotland's, Isle of Arran.
Corrie is an attractive village with the ‘Mara Fish Bar & Deli’, church, village hall, the Corrie Hotel and 2 separate harbours. For the avid golfer, Corrie has its own 9 hole, 3896 yard golf course on the hillside above, offering magnificent views over the Firth of Clyde. Brodick Golf Course is nearby and offers an 18 hole course, surrounded by spectacular scenery, and is a mixture of parkland and links. Corrie lies 6 miles north of Brodick, which is the largest village on the island, and offers visitors the best selection of services on Arran. Here you will find a range of shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels. Both primary and secondary schooling is available on the island. Corrie and Brodick both have reputable primary schools and Arran High School is situated in Lamlash, only a 20-minute drive from Corrie.
Brodick is the port from which regular sailings throughout the day, serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne, lead to the mainland at Ardrossan. Commuters and travellers now benefit from Road Equivalent Tarrif (RET) ferry fares, which are substantially lower than before. Ardrossan has a main line rail station, with trains to Glasgow that connect with the ferry times, and is approximately 30 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Prestwick International Airport is 16 miles to the south of Ardrossan, with Glasgow International Airport 24 miles east of Ardrossan.
When coming from the ferry terminal, turn right onto the main road and proceed through Brodick for about a mile. After you pass the Heritage Museum on your right follow the main road as it bends round to the right and proceed 5 miles to Corrie. As you approach Corrie there is a Mock Tudor house followed by a stone bridge. After crossing, take the next left (signposted Goatfell footpath). The Steading barn and stable is 60 meters up this track on the right.
