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.

Are you a Hygge seeker?
- posted 30th January 2017

Hygge - the Danish concept of wellbeing - is all about atmosphere and experience - cosiness, togetherness, shelter, being in the moment (not on the phone) and a few sweet foodie pleasures! What's not to like? On Arran you can share a cosy yurt with those you love, cook on a wood fire, relax, snuggle up and enjoy a bit of hygge time!

Winter Wood Stores
- posted 10th November 2016

Getting towards winter now and the site is getting quieter (though we still have guests arriving most weekends in this month) - so time to get the winter wood stores ready. This summer we've adopted a new approach to stacking wood in circular piles to finish off the seasoning process (see the picture above). We were inspired by the book 'Norwegian Wood - Chopping Stacking and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way' by Lars Mytting. The stacks have proved both successful and a talking point - but hard work. However, you can never have too much firewood!

Late Summer/Autumn Walks
- posted 12th September 2016

Summer is coming to a close and it has been a good first season for our yurts. Our guests all seemed to enjoy their time on the island. However, the days are still warm, and when the wind and rain stay away, it is great to get out walking in the hills. We had a fabulous walk at the weekend from Dyemill up to Loch Urie above Lamlash Bay. The views looking back over Holy Isle were spectacular.
