Cherrydidi's Den - Isle of Arran
From 2023, we would like to offer artists the opportunity to retreat to the Cherrydidi den: Goat Fell Cottage, on the Isle of Arran.
Goat Fell Cottage is an idiosyncratic and personal sanctuary, inhabited for years by a glassworker. It is a place to relax and feel inspired, a place to watch the light shifting over the sea.
The cottage is situated in High Corrie, on the slopes of Goat Fell. Below are the villages of Corrie and Sannox, by the sea. High Corrie’s Scottish Gaelic name, ‘Gàrradh Mòr’, translates literally to ‘Great Garden’.
High Corrie has a history of being much loved by communities of artists and poets – notably, the painters Margot Sandeman and Joan Eardley, and writer Robert McLellan.
We want to offer this hideaway to artists at a price they can afford, to carry on its rich, magical tradition.
