Runach Arainn

Luxury Glamping Yurts on The Isle of Arran, Scotland

Winner AA Glamping Site of the Year 2018

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 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. In addition we provide free site-wide WiFi.

Love star gazing? The stars on the Isle of Arran look amazing on a clear night, with the Milky Way visible and often a glimpse of shooting stars and the international space station. Gaze from your comfy double bed through the yurt central window or wander outside to enjoy the cosmos.

Enjoy a leisurely wander around Brodick Castle gardens and take in the beauty of this famous plant collection from around the world. In Victorian times the Hamilton family sent for plants from around the globe to adorn their gardens and these are now flourishing under the care of the National Trust for Scotland for everyone to enjoy. Spring is a great time to see rhododendrons in many colours (Brodick has a prize winning collection), syringas, camellias and magnolias.
