Golf Course

Here you likely to see some deer out for their morning stroll so don’t hit them with any balls.

Lochranza Castle

An old castle situated right next to the sea. It has been under renovation and is as good as ever. A great way to spend a day out.

Caledonian Ferry

The ferry takes you across to Cloanaig and only takes half an hour. It is a smooth crossing and it is a nice d<o:p> ay out for the family.


The Arran Heritage Museum

The museum hosts a number of great learning experiences. There is a gift shop, an exhibition showing what a house in the late 1900s would look like. There is also a part of the museum which lets you have an insight into how horse shoes were made. It is a really interesting experiencing and one which, if it was your first time visiting Arran, we would suggest.

The Castle
