Each yurt comes fully equipped with all you will need for your holiday including bedding, towels, crockery and cooking utensils. The large yurts can sleep up to six people and the smaller one up to four. They are ideal for a romantic break or as a base for an adventurous family holiday. Inside each yurt there is a log burning stove including a small oven and outside each yurt has its own firepit for campfire cooking (trivet and griddle provided) and its own picnic bench. We also provide enough firewood for your stay. The site is 15mins walk from Torrylinn beach and a similar distance from the Lagg Hotel for drinks or an evening meal.More

On arrival we'll show you to your yurt and are happy to leave you to it, but equally we'll help you get the fire going if you need help. We live in the Old Manse adjacent to the site and are normally around to provide advice if required.

This was our first time staying in a yurt, and we loved it! The yurt is a thing of beauty, and Pippa and Andy have thought of everything. My 7 year old was enchanted by the old suitcase stuffed full of games and toys. There...More

Fabulous place to spend a break. The Yurts are great. Very comfortable, roomy and well appointed. The site is spacious and very pretty. Pippa and Andy were very welcoming and helpful. I'd thoroughly recommend spending some time here - a really chilled place.

About the neighborhood
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.
