The government and public health representatives have made it clear that the best place for young people is outdoors. At Lochranza Centre CIC that is what we do best – work safely outdoors with young people. However, current education guidelines do not permit overnight stays for school groups. This is to the detriment of both pupils’ wellbeing and the outdoor education sector. There is a new petition to the UK Government and Parliament requesting a change to the guidance: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/330559.
For information about the Lochranza Centre’s response to Covid-19, see our page here. The safety of our guests and staff is at the forefront of our thinking, as we listen closely to what the governments of the UK as a whole and Scotland are saying. If you have any questions, rest assured we are here to deal with them if you email firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a ring on 01770 830 637.

Frydays are Fridays!
Our ever-popular Frydays are back! Chip shop nights with an order and collect service, every Friday starting Friday 9th October 2020! Place your order before 5pm on the day, and pick up from 6pm-7pm, sit outside or take away.
Throughout September and October 2020, we are available for guided Geology / Wildlife / Mountain walks for groups of four persons and above. Our staff are all trained or fully-qualified Mountain Leaders, with degrees in relevant environmental subjects (Geology, Geography or Biology), and very experienced in outdoors education!
We are planning a small challenge. The Three Lochs Adventure will see the staff team walk and paddle the three inland lochs on the west side of Arran - Coire-Fhionn Lochan, Loch Tanna and Loch Iorsa. The pictures and video footage alone will be fantastic!
Your support would be massively appreciated as we try and get through the Covid19 crisis and onto a positive future. We want to be here to keep doing what we love are indeed what our guests enjoy most when they are with us - getting out and about on our fantastic island.
