Play pitch and putt

You’ll share our unique 11-hole course with red deer and hill sheep. The pitch and putt course is designed to be family-friendly and suitable for beginners, as well as to challenge the more experienced. You don’t need to wear anything special – play in your hiking boots if you like. Clubs can be hired from the campsite reception. It costs £7 for adults and £4 for children – a freeze on our 2022 prices.

Learn about geology at Lochranza Centre

If you’ve read anything about Arran, you’ll know it has rather special rocks. Pop into the Arran Geology Interpretation Room at Lochranza Centre, five minutes’ walk from the campsite, to find out all about its geology.

Sip a dram at The Arran Distillery

Even if you’re not a whisky fan, you’ll enjoy learning about the whisky distilling process in tours which are delivered by enthusiastic and knowledgeable local guides. The Distillery shop sells local produce and crafts, and there is a lovely café.

Take the ferry to Kintyre

It’s a half-hour crossing to Claonaig on the Lochranza ferry. From there, you can walk or cycle the couple of miles to Skipness Castle and the medieval chapel. You can also enjoy the Seafood Cabin, which serves delicious platters of local seafood; Skipness Smokehouse, selling local crafts and its renowned sustainably-sourced smoked fish; and the sandy beach with its impressive views of North Arran.

Go wildlife spotting

Just step outside your tent, pod, caravan, campervan or motorhome, and you’ll see a lot of wildlife. Red squirrels can be seen darting across the campsite, and the local red deer often come down from the hills to have a nosy. Wandering around the village, you can see golden eagles, badgers, seals, otters, harbour porpoises, and much more wildlife besides. Just don’t forget to pack your binoculars!
