We took my dad for his 70th birthday. Dawn who ran the stables was great and communicated very well about the booking. The trek was perfect and the staff at the stables were friendly and chatty. Definitely recommend this if you visit Arran.

I would highly recommend a ride along the beach at Blackwaterfoot, Dawn is extremely safety and horse/rider welfare, thoroughly enjoyable

Another trip to Blackwaterfoot - no riding was planned but the disappointed look on our daughter's face reminded us what was wanted. Dawn fitted us in and the ride along the beach was a big hit.
