Lochranza Caravan & Camp Site
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a great week at lochranza caravan and campsite. It is situated in a beautiful location surrounded by fells, with a burn running along the edge of the site. The toilet block was always kept clean and we never had to queue for the shower. There is a golf course next to the site with a putting green which is free to use for campers, putters are provided.
The weather was fab most of the week although there was a great downpour on the 1st night which left some of the site a bit boggy for a while, but everybody seemed to manage ok.
The owners were friendly and helpful and the site is kept in great condition. The fact that wild deer roam freely around the campsite is a great experience, especially for the children, and was one of the attractions when we booked. You get a really close up view of the animals that would be hard to beat.
There is a great restaurant, the stags pavilion, next to the site.
Arran is a lovely island and this was our first camping trip to Scotland and it could not have been better.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

Lovely clean campsite, friendly staff and the local Dear seem interested in 1979 VW Campers! They were gathered round our van having a good nosey at 6am!
The campsite is also very well situated for the Arran Distillery across the road

This campsite has spotless facilities and is in a beautiful, quiet spot surrounded by mountains. Lovely sunset on our one night stay, and the deer also came to visit in the early hours. Lambs in the field next door, and a distillery just across the road.
Perfect relaxation....

Room Tip: Not far from the ferry terminal at Lochranza

We visited in September. The campsite is in a great location with a short walk to the sea and castle with an even shorter walk to the distillery. Very clean toilets and well run site. The site has a nine hole golf club attached with honesty box to play.
The highlight for us was the wildlife with red deer, red squirrels, an otter and possibly a golden eagle. There is a superb restaurant at the entrance to the camp but it is advisable to book as fills quickly.
Some very nice walks nearby especially along the coast and over the hills.
I would highly recommend and will return.

Room Tip: Nice to camp next to the 9th green but watch out for errant golf balls.

First time on arran, and chose lochranza with no knowledge of area.

Campsite was lovely!! Excellent standard, toilets and showers great (some fellow campers could have helped be cleaner). Beautiful views, we had gorgeous sunsets every night! The deer are just something else, and were of no bother at all until some idiots that hadn't read the sign started feeding the!

The walk down to the castle is well worth it for a sunset!!

Campsite owners provided us with lots of info of what to do and where to visit, excellent and made our trips perfect. Little communal room was ideal, and washer dryers available if needed.

Everyone was very friendly and kids got a huge amount of freedom on this site, which adds so much to their holiday as the don't get that back home in the city.

We were encouraged to the local ceildh and had a ball, our 7yr old did every dance!! Band was great and everyone very friendly.

We would thoroughly recommend anything organised by COAST a sea life organization. Kids got to hold and learn about lots of sea life.
Highland games and farmers day were fab days out.
Castle grounds fab for kids.
Lots of lovely beaches.

Ate in some beautiful places local pub in lochranza, kildonan hotel, Glenisle hotel Lamlash, but we're disappointed with the choice at the Douglas, didn't really cater for kids.

Arran ice cream is awesome, our 5yr old still talks about it, don't miss out!!!

This camp site is just on the outskirts of Lochranza. If you leave the ferry at Lochranza having come from Claonaig, you turn left onto the A841 and head out of Lochranza towards Brodick. The site on the left has lovely views, hook ups or not as you wish. It is next to a golf course. It has amazingly good facilities including a washer and dryer, also a lounge, kettle in there, microwave, sofas, power for charging phones, and lots of information about the locality. This is very unusual for a camp site.. The microwave was useful for making hot drinks at bed time. Everything was very clean including the showers and washing up facilities... Yes, Das midge will get you when they are around but you will have to get used to them, and take action to quell the beasts with insect spray, they do impale themselves against you and your shelter/tent van. This is the countryside you are in.... There are deer all around and they visit the site, you must not feed them or else, a notice says, they become more of a nuisance looking for titbits and they will end up in burgers, apparently. They are very nosy (noisy at rut) creatures and like to know what is going on in tents and vans, so they need no encouragement...Keep your dog on a lead... Very friendly and helpful wardens and it looked like they pick the deer poo up every day, off the site to keep the ground around tents and vans clean. Overall a very good popular site..quiet at night, unless you get a noisy family in a tent behind you that scream and shout, (and parents don`t consider others), until about 10.00pm. Price reasonable.... The restaurant outside the site, is always full, in the evening and you can`t get in unless you book, and even then you can`t even book at times. There is the distillery up the road and to the left during the daytime with a cafe....

This campsite certainly lived up to its reviews. Beautiful location with mountains around you and a stream babbling in the background. The neighbours are often a herd of red deer who come and graze on the grass. We arrived during rutting season which although can be a bit noisy and must be a bit scary for anyone who doesn't know what the roars in the distance are, being able to see the stags rutting on the hills is an experience I will never forget. We saw a Golden Eagle soaring above us as well.
Very quiet and relaxing site that has very clean and well maintained shower and toilet block. The camper's room has a fridge and electric kettle as well as loads of information about the area which was very helpful. The owners Nigel and Kathy are very helpful and very discrete however always seem to know when you need a hand. Nigel very kindly gave us a jump start when the battery in our campervan went flat.
Although this campsite is in a very quiet location you can eat locally at the Stags Pavillion which is at the entrance of the site. Excellent food and service from Reno and Val. Book in advance so as no to be disappointed. The Isle of Arran distillery is also very near and does food during the day too. The Lochranza Hotel is about 15/20 mins away and if you are intending to leave late remember to have a torch with you. The range of whiskies they have is outstanding!
There is also a bus service from the distillery that can take you south to Brodick or around the west coast to Blackwaterfoot. Bus fares were reasonable too and we spent a day at Blackwaterfoot without either of us having to forgo the brilliant scenery by keeping an eye on the road.
Would love to go back to this campsite in the future.
