The site is idyllic albeit fairly wet under foot. The local wildlife (red deer) are certainly in abundance as they walk through the site, which was a bit of a worry as it was well into rutting season and the males were pretty protective, we were a little uneasy letting the kids have a free run about. The site for me was tired and a little expensive. As previously described there are no shops in the local village closest is Brodick, 11 miles away so you do need to stock up.

Management response: Now it's the end of our season we would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to post a review this year.

Our 'tired' reception building has now gone and is being replaced by a new building that has brand new laundry facilities, a new shower room for disabled people and a new campers' room. It is being built by the company who provided our attractive washrooms three seasons ago.

Lochranza is designated deer forest and the deer were here first! We love the magnificence of the spectacle of the rut on the golf course. Now it's all over for another year and the deer have headed back to the hills.

The nearest village shop to Lochranza is a traditional village shop, selling a bit of everything, at Pirnmill 7 miles away. The Arran Distillery across the road from us sells fresh bread and milk. Other food choices in the village are: a café, a restaurant, a hotel with a public bar and a sandwich shop in the village.

We hope you enjoy a warm and cosy winter.

Without doubt the best site we've used. This is why we were back for the third year in a row. And this year we had fantastic weather - apart from the day the lightning hit the distillery (but even that gave us something to remember. The site is set in the most beautiful location, surrounded by hills and just a short walk from the loch and Castle. The aforementioned distillery is about 400 yards from the site and has a lovely café. Within a mile is the Sandwich Station near the ferry to Claonaig (well worth a trip - as a foot passenger it's about £5). There are no end of beautiful walks - and if your not sure just ask Nigel or Kathy they are the nicest and most friendly wardens we have met.

The site is immaculate and well managed - on arrival Nigel directed us to a dry pitch (not easy as I think we had the only two dry weeks the West of Scotland had this summer. The showers we're always clean and tidy with plenty of hot water. We made plenty of use of the golf course and putting green attached to the site.

There is plenty of information in the lounge area regarding walks, things to see and do and as mentioned before it's well worth a chat with Nigel and Kathy - incredibly nice people who will share their local knowledge and recommend the best things to do.

Our three year old border collie loved her holiday too - she tried to be on her best behaviour on site but loved running around the hills on our walks.

We did need our midgie cream this year but this was a minor inconvenience given the glorious weather we had.

Just to prove how good this was - our 16 year old, shopping loving daughter is already planning our visit for next year.

To summarise - in terms of location, value for money, cleanliness and the staff this site is as good as it gets. Thanks again Nigel and Kathy!

Well! - where to start. Whether you enjoy great walks, a quite outstanding visit to one of the finest whisky distilleries in Scotland, the prospect of a round of golf only disturbed by the herds of deer that meet to graze, or the prospect of reliable Golden Eagle sitings, This is the place to stay.

We were greeted by totally professional, friendly care-taker managers - not that you would have known. The site is quite delightful and there is an excellent on-site restaurant as well.

We loved it - and wished we had booked a longer stay.

Don't miss it!

Only stayed here for one night before catching an early ferry to Kintyre. Arrived early due to bad weather and owner very helpful and accommodating and let us pitch up. Easy to book online and pay in advance as needed. Torrential rain meant the site was very wet, although dried up well by the next day. We had a grass pitch as we were a small van but ended up with vans very close either side so not much of our own space. Wouldnt really have had room to use pull out awning if we wanted to, although this may have been due to problems with water logged pitches. Had the river running behind us which was lovely to listen to. Good showers and toilets which were kept really clean despite the rain, although had to wait for showers. Covered washing up area and laundry area. There was a restaurant just outside the gate, although this was closed while we were there. Easy walk to the distillery for tours, shop and cafe, although we just popped in. We walked down to Lochranza by road - very pretty and saw lots of deer on the green on the way. Also walked through the golf course in the evening to get a close up look at the free roaming deer and enjoy views at dusk. Convenient site for ferry in summer, although you need to get to the port early as its a very small ferry!

Fantastic site. Made so welcome by Nigel and Kathy. Kept a pitch by the toilet especially for me (disabled due to MS). Second visit but will certainly go back again. Great place for moving on to Kintyre. Site very clean and truly beautiful. Kathy now selling my books by Jessie Macquarrie, great read for anyone who loves Scotland, caravaning, wildlife, scenery etc. Thanks for another great stay.

We arrived here for a 3 night stay after 4 nights in Lamlash and it couldn't have been more different. The site is set in a magnificent spot at the head of the loch surrounded by towering hills and by a lovely burn. The drive from Brodick is worth it in itself for views of the majestic scenery. Unfortunately the weather was wet and wild and some tents had suffered.

We were warmly welcomed by the owner, everything was very well organised and we were quickly shown to an excellent hard standing with power and water right next to the toilet block- modern clean and well appointed (although no privacy cubicles or family room). There is a campers lounge full of information, a fridge, kettle and a microwave- useful if you are camping and a good laundry and drying room.

On our last night we ran out of gas. Luckily we could buy a refilled bottle at a reasonable price.

We had been told previously that the on site restaurant 'The Stag' was very good and were warned to prebook. Unfortunately we didn't take the advice so couldn't get in but the aromas were wonderful and we plan to return.

Lochranza is small and quiet but in a superb location with a ferry to Kintyre, good walking, good bus service, excellent sandwich and icecream shop and deer and sheep a plenty. We didn't see a golden eagle this time but hope to on our next visit.
