A fantastic campsite with fantastic owners. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The facilities are clean and functional, and the toilets never ran out of toilet paper! There are lots of sinks for washing up under cover. I especially liked the camper's lounge and useful microwave and kettle. The fridge is quite small and we didn't use it, preferring to rely on your own coolbox. The lounge and reception area are full of information and useful wildlife id guides are available, while weather forecast are posted daily and information/suggestions about things to do are also updated daily. The surroundings are sublime apart from the dreaded midge, which is just a feature of Scottish camping that you have to accept (but take a head net or buy one from the shop in reception). Red deer are all around and often in the campsite. Golden eagles nest in the cargs above and can be seen soaring above the glen. Red squirrels are also often seen but we did not see any during the four days we were there. Good eating options in Lochranza hotel and the Arran distillery across the road. Fantastic walks right from the campsite.

Absolutely stunning location, friendly helpful staff nothing is too much trouble for them, very flexible as we didn't know how long we wanted to stay to be honest we didn't want to leave!

Amazing views with wild deer roaming the site.

Truly a heavenly place.

I would recommend this quiet site if you want a relaxing break in a lovely location.

Toilet block very clean everything you need really.

Brilliant peaceful site where red deer roam freely over the adjacent golf course. The campsite is reasonably level with some hard standings. We chose a pitch overlooking the golf course where we could watch the deer close up. The only downside was the heavy rain over one day which resulted in our breathable groundsheet allowing the rainwater through. A bit squelchy to say the least.

The toilet and shower facilities are spotlessly clean. There is a dish wash area outside the toilet block. You can observe the deer here too munching the grass only feet away from you. There is a walk round the edge of the golf course which leads to the bay where you will find Lochranza Castle. It is such a beautiful place. Golden Eagles are in the hills behind the distillery. We watched one soaring overhead for almost two hours. The cuckoos are never far away either.

Just outside the campsite is the Stag Pavilion Restaurant which serves up wonderful food throughout the day except Wednesday. It's so popular you have to book. Across the road is the distillery. What more could you ask for.

I wish we were still there.

Really good site with friendly helpful staff.

Toilets and showers immaculate with lots of hot water.

The setting is spectacular, words just can't do it justice and as for the sunset over Lochranza Castle!

Deer roam through the village and golf course quite unperturbed and adding to the atmosphere.

On the adjacent immaculately maintained 9 hole golf course, green fees plus hire of clubs is 10. 00 for camp site customers, beat that!.

The restaurant on site was fully booked during our stay so can't comment but its popularity speaks volumes.

You must try the Sandwich Station opposite the Lochranza ferry slip for a huge and imaginative range of fillings and coffee.

Only caveat as with most of the West of Scotland at this time of year - take plenty of midge repellent.

First visit to this site and couldn't fault it. Very friendly, caring owners. All facilities first class and spotless whatever time of day it was. A very peaceful site, advertised as the quiet site and it was. The location is lovely, a stroll across the golf course to the bay. No local shop though for provisions so stock up before you go!

We came last year and found the new owners had already made considerable improvements to the site

The one thing we thought needed attention was the toilets and showers which were in sad need of replacement or refurbishment

Imagine our delight to see the new facilities this year. Beautifully designed and including heating

The site remains a lovely location regularly visited by the local deer. The owners are very good about checking the site is in good order but I have never seen a deer droppings patrol in operation until we visited this site!

The owners are a lovely couple who take great pride in the site

We made good use of the local bus this time as we stayed for a week which saved us moving the van when we wanted to go out. One driver even dropped us at the site gates!

A fantastic site and we will be back
