Lochranza Campsite is a small, friendly campsite in an awe-inspiring location at the north-west end of the Isle of Arran. A small Calmac ferry shuttles daily from March to October between Claonaig on Kintyre and Lochranza, though the main ferry route to the island is from Ardrossan, on the North Ayrshire coast, to Brodick. From there, it is 14 miles, or half an hour by motor vehicle, to Lochranza by the scenic coast road.
Lochranza Campsite is tucked away at the head of a steep-sided mountain glen which is the domain of golden eagles. It has sweeping views down the delightful village golf course, where wild red deer graze, towards the sea loch. Other frequent visitors to the campsite are red squirrels, whilst basking sharks, seals, dolphins and porpoises are regularly sighted from the rocky coastline. In May, June and July campsite evenings are long as the summer sun sets directly into the glen.
Lochranza itself is a quintessential small Scottish village of whitewashed cottages scattered round the loch and medieval castle. Until the 19th century the only access to the village was by sea. The view inland from Newton Point of the fjord-like glen with the towering craggy mountains above it has inspired many artists and writers. The area is also famous for its fascinating geology. Most people come to Lochranza to soak up its timeless peace and beauty, to explore its wonderful nature, and to walk, cycle, kayak or sail. It also makes an excellent base for exploring both east and west coasts of the island.
Lochranza Campsite welcomes touring motorhomes, caravans and tents of all shapes and sizes. Facilities include hot showers (new in 2013), hairdryers, clean toilets, level pitches, hard standing pitches, electric hook ups, a small laundrette with drying cupboard for outdoor clothes and boots, and a campers’ room with local information, microwave and fridge. The pay-and-play 9 hole golf course is open to all with special offers for campsite guests, and novices and juniors are positively encouraged.
Well-managed dogs are welcome.
Lochranza Campsite is situated in a National Scenic Area and is a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation.
