About the neighbourhood
There is so much to do on the Isle of Arran. Relax on our decking, drinking in the view all day or after an active day. Play golf on any of the seven golf courses. Walk any of the range of walks available and signposted or climb the ancient rocks giving challenging climbs for those interested in a climbing holiday. Capture the amazing views and wildlife with your camera. Visit Arran Brewery or Arran Distillery and get a wee sample. Something for everyone is available on Arran from the Playbarn for children at Auchrannie to paragliding for the more adventurous, spa treatments, great places to eat and drink. Arran has so much to offer everyone. Why wait, come and see for yourself
How to get there
From Brodick Pier turn left uphill towards Lamlash. As you come downhill into Lamlash turn sharp left onto Shore Rd. Turn left immediately after crossing a small red sandstone bridge near swings and follow the road round a sharp right bend uphill. Dean Lodge is the 4th house with parking at the top of the drive for you. (It is easy to find the house by always following the red H A&E signs as we are on the way to the local cottage hospital.) Anyone requiring assistance with travel should contact the service providers. A lift is available on the ferry as is a wheelchair. Cal Mac staff are very helpful and experienced in giving assistance.Ramps are available for trains
