Lochranza Caravan and Campsite is situated at the south end of the friendly village of Lochranza on the beautiful Isle of Arran's wild north-west coast – one of Scotland's National Scenic Areas and a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation. Our campsite is family-run and offers traditional camping for people who want to go back to basics and relax in a tranquil setting. The campsite occupies two acres of flat grassland between a burn, Chalmadale Waters, and Lochranza Golf Course. There are level pitches for tents and campervans of all shapes and sizes, as well as six motorhome or caravan pitches on gravel hard standings. We also have five heated and insulated wooden camping pods.
We are proud to hold the Green Tourism Gold Award, which recognizes our commitment to reducing the impact of our site on Arran’s precious biodiversity. Among others, we have charging points for e-cars.
Lochranza Campsite is half an hour from the Arran island hub of Brodick, nestled in a tranquil location at the head of the valley, between glens Easan and Chalmadale. The hills are roamed by hill sheep and red deer, and nearby you might also spot red squirrels, harbour seals, golden eagles and otters – the full complement of Scotland’s Big Five. It’s a great striking out point for iconic walks, including Fairy Dell (4 miles), which takes in Hutton’s Unconformity, where 18th-century geologist James Hutton proved that the world was much older than thought at the time. Across the road is the Lochranza Distillery, home of the Arran Single Malt, and we are a short drive from Lochranza pier, where you can take the CalMac ferry from Lochranza to Claonaig on the Kintyre peninsula for a day trip or to set off on an island hopping adventure. For one of Arran’s best sandy beaches, it’s a 10-minute drive to Sannox, where spiky mountains plunge into a cuticle-shaped bay.
Beautifully rural, Lochranza Golf Course spreads across the tree-studded stretch of land beside the campsite, between the mouths of glens Easan and Chalmadale and the pebbly coast. An 11-hole, par 3 pitch and putt course, it is arranged around Chalmadale Burn and is suitable for all abilities, including families. It has interesting features, including ponds, bridges and even its own standing stone, and is freely roamed by red deer (and sometimes cheeky hill sheep), offering an informal golf experience for anyone who likes to be in the Scottish outdoors. Clubs and putters are included in the fee, and booking is not required. Passes can be purchased at the campsite reception. We accept the Arran Golf Pass.
Please note: Bookings for 2023 are now open.
