I have just spent a couple of nights at Lochranza Youth Hostel and would just like to say what a wonderful experience it was. Steve and the staff made me most welcome and were helpful and accommodating in every way. The hostel has obviously been upgraded since my last stay several years ago and it now boasts a very high standard of cleanliness, the kitchen is fully equipped and the room I stayed in was spacious with 4 bunks. The lounge areas are comfy, there's also internet access and generally there's a warm, friendly atmosphere all round. Lochranza is a quiet village in the north of Arran surrounded by some spectacular hilly scenery so if that kind of thing appeals to you, it's the perfect getaway for chilling out or getting out into the great outdoors - or both, with a good bus service runnning right outside if you want to go to the "Big Smoke" of Brodick. Thanks again to Steve and his staff for looking after myself and everyone else there and I'll be looking forward to a visit next year when the wee ferry is back.
