This is a summer like no other for us all. Holidays are good for body and soul but we all must think about every action we take so that we do not endanger ourselves or others.
If you are thinking of coming to stay at Lochranza Campsite this summer please read the following information carefully:-
Is Arran open? Yes, but some Arran cafes, restaurants and visitor attractions will not be opening this summer. Please check with VisitArran as to what is and isn’t open. Food can be bought at Pirnmill Stores (7 miles from Lochranza) and the Co-op at Brodick. The island is still as beautiful as ever with lots of great walking to enjoy.
