2017 Access Statement for Lochranza Campsite
Lochranza Campsite is a 3 star campsite situated in a mountain glen. We have a modern washroom (new in 2016) with sink, shower and toilet for visitors of limited mobility. There is movement-sensed lighting outside the reception building and washrooms but the campsite is otherwise unlit.
Lochranza has no pavements or street lighting but also low levels of traffic. The roads through the village and round the loch are flat.
The nearest shop is Pirnmill Village Stores 6 miles west from the campsite. It is on the bus route.
The campsite has 24 hour supervision and staff are always happy to help.
Lochranza Campsite consists of two acres of flat grassland bordered by a burn, Chalmadale Waters, on one side and Lochranza Golf Course on the other. A main gravel track leads to a long section of gravel hardstanding divided into six motorhome or caravan pitches. This area is situated approximately 100m away from facilities. A smaller gravel hardstanding area, comprising two motorhome or caravan pitches, is situated close by the washrooms. We also have two large grass pitches adjacent to our facilities which remain firm except in the wettest weather. All motorhome/ caravan pitches have good views of the surrounding scenery and easy access to water and electric hook ups.
It is possible to see wildlife without leaving your pitch including golden eagles, red deer and red squirrels.
A fairly flat track which is accessible to all-terrain mobility scooters runs from the campsite by the side of the golf course to the loch.
From September to March we enjoy dark skies at night with clearly visible constellations.
The site has wi-fi access. A satellite dish is needed for watching television.
We are reached by the A841 which circuits the island. Although this road has two-way traffic it is narrow and it is advised not to exceed 30 mph.
Calmac ferries are accessible to wheelchair users.
Arran buses are accessible to wheelchair users.
Accessibility and our facilities
In 2016 we have installed a new shower room and toilet for guests who have limited mobility. The room dimensions are: 2.5m x 1.8m. It is accessible by wheelchairs and reached by a wide ramp. From the ramp, go through the Basecamp door (1m wide) and then straight ahead.
The washroom contains a shower with a seat and handrail, a toilet, a sink and an emergency call cord. The shower does not have a raised lip.
The toilet is 0.5m high and has a handrail.
The sink is 0.73m high and has a handrail.
You will need to bring your own towels and hairdryer.
Ask us for a key
Please tell us if you wish to use the facility and we will give you a key for the duration of your stay. We ask for a £10 returnable deposit when you take the key.
Please be aware that the washroom is open 12- 1 pm daily whilst the main campsite washrooms are being cleaned, so please avoid taking a shower during that hour.
