Runach Arainn

Luxury Glamping Yurts on The Isle of Arran, Scotland

Runach Arainn ('Secret or Beloved Arran' in Gaelic) is a small, intimate glamping (glamorous camping) site on the south end of the Isle of Arran, Scotland. We offer self-catering glamping accommodation in luxury yurts accompanied by private bathrooms. We are an ideal holiday destination for families and couples looking for a short break or a longer vacation. With our proper double beds, wood burning stoves, firepits and sofas we are definitely at the glamorous end of camping!
 
Our site is set in a small orchard near the village of Kilmory where we have three Scottish made larch wood frame yurts. Each yurt comes fully equipped with all you will need for your holiday including bedding, towels, crockery and cooking utensils. Two yurts can sleep up to six people and the third can accommodate up to four people. Each is ideal for a romantic break or as a base for an adventurous family holiday.

Our eldest and her boyfriend are back from university and have been looking for something constructive to do - so we set them to work den building.

Alternatively, if you think you could do better you can have a go yourself when you come to stay - just ask and we'll provide you with the necessary bits and pieces.
