Autumn is a fantastic time to visit Arran. As Summer ends and Winter approaches the changing colours, landscapes and seascapes are fantastic. We are offering a six night stay from the 1st to the 7th of November 2021, offering guided walks on Arran's fascinating geology, wildlife and landscapes. This will include full board accommodation in twin or single rooms, four full days of guided walks on sections of the Arran Coastal Way (transport provided), and one free day to explore. It also includes the fantastic Festival of Fire at Lochranza Castle on the 6th November. So why not make a little time for yourself? Group sizes are limited at the moment so best book early. Cost is £475 per person.

Virtual Festival of Geology 2020


As part of the Lochranza Centre's contribution to the 2020 virtual Festival of Geology, we created this PowerPoint, showcasing what we do at the Centre, and Arran's spectacular geology.

On Friday 23rd October 2020 the staff team completed the Three Lochs Adventure! This saw us walk and paddle the three inland lochs on the west side of Arran - Coire-Fhionn Lochan, Loch Tanna and Loch Iorsa. A touch wet underfoot, but we made it! This unique challenge was designed to raise funds to help the Centre get through the Covid-19 crisis and on to a positive future. We want to be here to keep doing what we love and indeed what our guests enjoy most when they are with us - getting out and about on our fantastic island. Your support continues to be massively appreciated. To see some pictures from the day, take a look on Instagram or Facebook.
