We’re a family-run farm located near Blackwaterfoot on the Isle of Arran. Sitting at the top of a hill, we enjoy spectacular views over the Kilbrannan Sound, over to the Kintyre Peninsula.
As well as rearing animals and growing barley, we offer farm tours, experiences, and self-catering accommodation for visitors to the island.
The farm is a beef, sheep and arable farm and we now rear our own pork and goat meat.
We grow malting barley which is sold to the local distillery to make Arran Whisky. Any barley remains from the whisky process are brought back to the farm so we can use it to feed the cattle.
We’re also bringing our farm to fork proposition to Arran residents, through our farmer’s market.
The Currie family have been farming on this island for six generations – farming is what we do. We want to welcome people onto our land to help them learn more about how farming works, give an insight into our life and encourage people to find out about where their food comes from.
Farm to fork is an extension of what we do here at the farm. We’re engaging with other food producers on the island to host regular Farmer’s Markets. We want people who live on Arran and visit Arran to enjoy the vast range of freshly grown island produce we have to offer.
As part of our more recent journey, we have built a new space for visitors to relax and enjoy refreshments. We also hire out the barn for private events, so more people can visit the farm and experience the great outdoors on the west coast of Arran.

There are two ferries to Arran. One from Ardrossan (which is just southwest of Glasgow City) to Brodick and another from Claonaig on the Kintyre Peninsula which comes into Lochranza. In Winter the Claonaig ferry leaves from Tarbert, near Loch Fyne. For ticket details and ferry times, please visit calmac.co.uk
Once you’re on the island, there are Stagecoach bus services throughout the year which cover the North of the island, the South and “the String” which runs through the centre of the island. You’ll also find a number of private taxi companies. For more information, please see the Visit Arran website.
Arran is often referred to as Scotland in miniature. This is because it has a highlands, a lowlands, rolling valleys and high mountainous peaks. It’s a place that’s filled with celtic beauty, encircled with a glorious coastline.
If you’re visiting, you’ll find plenty to do on the island. We have history reaching back to the Iron age, castles, hill-walks, water-sports, fine dining, bars, festivals and fabulous independent stores.
