It was our first trip to Arran and certainly will not be our last. Arran is Scotland in miniature. The pace slows as you drive off the ferry. People take the time to stop and speak. Calmness surrounds you and the views driving to Lochranza are spectacular. The roads can be narrow in places but should not cause a problem... More

Very nice campsite. Good facilities for campers; showers, washing facilitates and some basic amenities. Red deer as neighbours too. No shops in Lochranza itself, so the Butcher who visits with groceries, meat, bread and milk is very welcome.

Thank you for writing a review and glad you enjoyed Lochranza in Spring, as well as the Arran Butcher's delicious meat. As you say, we keep emergency rations in Reception but the nearest grocery and paper shop is at Pirnmill. It is the only shop in the North End of Arran so we believe it's very important to support it.... More

This is the second time I have stayed here in consecutive years. On both occasions we loved the friendly atmosphere from the staff and campers onsite. Looking forward to making it 3 years on the trot! The nearby "Stags Pavillion" restraunt was outstanding and comes highly recommended. The wildlife in the area is the best I've ever witnessed including Eagles,... More

We had a fantastic time we stayed for 7days, the site is very well maintained, the facilities are immaculate and also very well maintained, the manager is lovely and very helpful. And worth planning in an evening meal at the Stags Head but you do need to book in advance

Approx 15 miles from Brodick, we arrived mid afternoon on Good Friday - greeted quickly by a very helpful gentleman and shown to our pitch which was right by the burn. Got the tent up fairly fast especially considering the high winds. Ground is a bit hard but we coped by using our handy mallet and had no issues. Toilet... More

We stayed in August 2014 for an 8 nights vacation - it was just marvelous. Everything is clean and you have the red deer right in front of your tent. And even the droppings of the deer are cleaned up every morning. So what you get is an almost great outdoors experience with red deer on the front porch of... More

Lochranza is possible one of my favourite places in the UK, and it was great to be back at the campsite for a couple of nights. This is a really good site, with plenty of space. The owners are really friendly and the facilities are great (why some people have complained about push-button showers is beyond me). We stayed in... More

Nice, excellent location, clean and nicely, if not luxuriously equipped. Helpful staff, choice of pitches, hook ups etc ground flat and fairly easy to get pegs in. Stunning views, Goldies out on display several times during our stay, as were the deer some of which were wandering round the campsite. Only slight reservation is the wind, but this is a... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this about your stay with us. Midges seem to be an ongoing thread this year so I'll pick up on it. Midges have done well this year because it's been a good, settled summer. In typical West coast wet and windy summers they are not a problem. There are lots... More

After ditching glen rosa due to a festival we came here. It was like heaven. Showers and loos are super clean. Facilities excellent. Location brilliant. Only niggle is the price. It's very expensive for a family of four. But we would have paid double after out glen rosa debacle

We always enjoy meeting you geocachers! Thank you very much for this review. We're sorry you had an unfortunate experience in Glen Rosa. It's also a lovely, wild, mountainous place offering basic facilities for walkers and those who appreciate nature. It's not the campsite at fault, it's the people who happened to be there at the same time as you. More

My family of four stayed here for the best part of 2 weeks in our 6 x 8 metre tent. The showers are clean, always hot and the owners ensure that the people staying on the site are respectful and quiet. We had the luxury of falling asleep to the sound of the river which was just what we needed.... More
