Location is perfect just a 100m off the ferry. Walkable to Stags (see my review). Wonderful views from rooms over the harbour and castle. Lovely interesting house, art and books. Great value. Everything worked. Super breakfasts. Helpful and friendly owners. Stayed for 2 nights - walked over to Fairy Dell - the sea shore is wonderful - the sea was... More

We stayed here in a double room for one night whilst on Arran, prior to travelling to Kintyre. Vicky was very welcoming and had answered all my queries via email promptly. The room was comfortable and warm with nice finishing touches such as pictures on the wall which could be purchased if so wished, nice to look at otherwise. There... More

We stayed in Castlekirk for for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay there. The location overlooking the castle was wonderful and the walking in this area was absolutely stunning. The rooms warm and comfortable and Vikki the host kind and welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay here. One thing I would stay about the area is that the places to... More

This was our 2nd stay at Castlekirk. Vicki is a very considerate and welcoming host. We were just there for 1 night but next time will stay longer. I cannot recommend this B & B enough. Lovely breakfast including fresh fruit. A very special place.

What a welcoming place to stay! Hearty full Scottish breakfast, comfy beds & rooms & thoughtful inclusions. Vicki has been a lovely host. Convenient location off the Cloanaig ferry, lovely walks close by, & perfect place to explore the island from. Close to the nearest pub (with food & take out wine sales available)& the "Stag Pavillion" offering a fantastic,... More

The positioning and view were just perfect. We paid £32.50 pppn for a twin room with bathroom nearby, which was a little more than was quoted in my friends book, but still reasonable. Vikki made me feel like I was visiting an old friend rather than a quest house. She provided a full cooked vegetarian British breakfast without prior notice... More

Reading the recent reviews, I can see that the other visitors are just as smitten as we were when we stayed there for 2 nights. I completely agree with all their glowing comments - it is just the most special place. Vicki made us feel very welcome, comfortable and relaxed in this converted church overlooking the castle and the loch,... More

We stayed at Castlekirk for 3 day is last week. What a magical place, comfortable, welcoming, perfect location, good access around the island even for us public transport users. Vicki has cast a spell over the place, making it feel like home and some. Delightful veggie breakfasts, super views and wildlife on tap. We have stayed in many places in... More

We cycled round Arran (slowly!) last week, staying in 3 different b&b's along the way. There is none that came even close to our 3 nights at Castlekirk - this place is very special indeed. Fully agree with other comments about our hostess Vicki - there is just something so good and kind about her, which makes you feel utterly... More

Castlekirk - a wonderful experience, an incredible memory. We stayed at this charming B&B for three nights last month. It was everything I'd hoped for, and so much more. Lochranza is a little piece of heaven on earth, so how fitting that our accommodations were in a converted church. Our host was delightful, the food was delicious, the location was... More
