Property 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 F
ell, 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.

Lochranza is a dog-friendly hostel. If you would like to book yourself and your dog into the hostel, please phone the hostel direct to check availability. There is a small charge of £5 per night for your dog when staying in our hostels.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

I highly recommend the Lochranza Youth Hostel to anyone. It was in a great location at the top of the island. It was really clean, and had a cosy lounge to chill out after a long day. If I'm back on the Isle of Arran I'll definitely stay here again!

Lovely clean place with excellent staff. There is no shop or was anything near to buy a meal. The hostel sells great frozen meals and provides a very good breakfast, a great bonus. Thank you Sebastian and Michael.
