The yurt was amazing - it was extremely clean, well equipped, and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again as it was a lovely, relaxing weekend.

This was our first yurt experience and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The location is beautiful and secluded, with lovely walks outside your yurt. The yurt itself had a WOW from all of us, it was home from home with everything you could wish for; books, games, stove for heat and cooking, extra blankets and...

What an amazing find! Stayed with 2 teens, and we absolutely loved the place. Amazing facilities (even towels had been thought of), comfy beds, very warm stove, cooking on the fire pit was a wonderful experience. All in all a real break away from everything. Arran itself is beautiful, and Pippa and Andy very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area...

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.
Car advised
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.
