Lochranza Youth Hostel Reviews

Description

Surrounded by hills on three sides, this four star VisitScotland accredited youth hostel sits in an attractive lochside village in the north of the Isle of Arran. Close by, on a narrow peninsula extending into beautiful Loch Ranza, is the imposing ruin of a 13th century castle.

Perfect for groups, families and individual travellers, the hostel offers guests a wide range of comfortable hotel like private en-suite rooms and spacious shared accommodation, all with individual lockers and bedside lights. The excellent washroom facilities are all equipped with hairdryers. Guests can opt for a continental breakfast or take advantage of the large, well-equipped, self-catering kitchen.

Other facilities include free WiFi, a laundry and drying room and free onsite parking, as well as a secure cycle store for up to ten bikes. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine or local craft beer in one of the hostel’s two cosy lounges, one with a TV and both with excellent views over the loch. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception.

The hostel benefits from a great bus connection, with the bus stop only a five minute walk away.

Lochranza is an ideal base for tackling the many trails and ridges of the Arran mountains, including Goat Fell, the island's highest peak. Experienced cyclists will enjoy the challenge of the circular 58 mile ride round the island but, for the less ambitious, the Cock of Arran walk offers a beautifully scenic low level trek, starting and finishing at the hostel. Arran’s only whisky distillery is a short walk away and well worth a visit.

Dogs are welcome at Lochranza, for a small fee, when booking a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is available.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.
