Walking Holidays


We have recently started offering walking holidays, opening up our facilities for an all-inclusive week of guided walks around the island. Now anybody who fancies learning a little bit more about Arran's fascinating geology, wildlife and landscapes - whilst getting the full benefit of spectacular island scenery - can book onto one of our public walking holidays. This will include full board accommodation in twin or single rooms, four full days of guided walks, and one free day to explore. So why not make a little time for yourself? 

Our 2022 walking holiday, priced at £475 per person, will run from 
Sunday 28th August - Saturday 3rd September.

To book your place, or find out more, please contact the Centre.

Public Geology Course

Have you ever cast your eyes upwards and wondered why that mountain is the shape it is? Or been puzzled by that particular lump of rock that sticks out so far? Maybe you’ve admired the pebbles along the shore, and wondered what they’re made of. If so, we might be able to help!


The Lochranza Centre runs Public Geology courses each year. These outdoor education courses take you into the field and equip you with the knowledge and skills to read our landscape with new eyes. Comprising a five-day package, including bed and board, the courses are largely outdoors-based but also feature some indoor learning.

Our 2022 course will run from Sunday 31st July - Saturday 6th August, an all-inclusive week priced at £475 per person.

To make your booking, or further information, please contact the Centre.
