Fabulous place to spend a break. The Yurts are great. Very comfortable, roomy and well appointed. The site is spacious and very pretty. Pippa and Andy were very welcoming and helpful. I'd thoroughly recommend spending some time here - a really chilled place.

Thank Navrig

Location is amazing, suitably secluded and quiet. There are 3 yurts nice distance between them. All the equipment you need and eco friendly. It’s great having a private bathroom and the utility room provides the mod cons we can’t be without! The yurts are immaculately...More

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Arran is about 20 miles long and 10 miles wide and sits in the Firth of Cylde. The 10 mile ferry crossing from Ardrossan takes 50 minutes - so we are less than 2 hours from Glasgow. For such a small island Arran contains a wide variety of sceneries and landscapes. To the North is the mountainous Goat Fell range - they may look benign from Brodick, but they are anything but. If you don't fancy the high level walks there are beautiful valley walks like Glen Rosa or more wooded walks in the South of the island like the Glenashdale Falls.

There are wonderful beaches all around the island - Blackwaterfoot in the West, Torrylinn in the South and Lochranza in the North.
Getting around
Kilmory is a quiet little hamlet and there are plenty of forest and beach walks available from the site.

You can use your car to get around the island if you wish, but there is also a regular and reliable bus service running both ways round the island. The nearest bus stop is 5 minutes walk form the site.

How to get there
Airport: Glasgow International: 60.0 km
Railway: Ardrossan Harbour: 40.0 km
Ferry: Brodick: 24.0 km
Runach Arainn is on South end of the Isle of Arran. The Isle of Arran sits in the Firth of Clyde to the West of Glasgow. It is accessed via ferry from the port of Ardrossan in North Ayrshire. For details of the ferry see Calmac Ferries

The ferry berths in the port of Brodick, where you can pick up supplies in the local Co-op. We are 18 miles (35 minutes drive) from the ferry port. Follow the coast road South around the Island. As you enter the village of Kilmory you will see the Creamery on your left, take the next right turn and follow the road to the Church - Runach Arainn is just beyond the Church.
