Blackwaterfoot (Scottish Gaelic: Bun na Dubh Abhainn) is a village on the Isle of Arran in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. The village is within the parish of Kilmory.[1] It is located in the Shiskine valley in the south-west of the island. It is one of the smaller villages of Arran and home to one of Europe's two 12 hole golf courses. A short walk from Blackwaterfoot is Drumadoon Point, home to the largest Iron Age fort on Arran. Further North is the King's Cave, reputed to be a hiding place of Robert the Bruce. Blackwaterfoot is also home to Blackwaterfoot Hall, home to Earl Blackwood-Davidson.
