Winner AA Glamping Site of The Year 2017-18
- posted 1st January 2018

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the 'AA Glamping Site of the Year for 2017-18'. We were both very surprised and delighted with the award.
 
The AA said "Runach Arainn, Gaelic for ‘Secret Arran’, lives up to its name – three superb Scottish-made, 20ft-diameter yurts hidden away in a quiet and beautiful part of the Isle of Arran, just a 15-minute walk from a lovely beach on the southern shore of this magical island. Access is via a quiet lane, which is a riot of wild flowers and flowering hawthorn in spring, providing the perfect introduction to Runach Arainn. It’s a successful delivery of glamping style. The very high quality and spacious yurts have furnishings and fittings that create the rustic romance of camping, while the private bathrooms add creature comfort that is an essential component of a truly exceptional glamping experience. Fire pits and outdoor cooking facilities enhance rustic charm and appeal of the place. The yurts sit within a developing forest garden that the owners have created, and the purchase of neighbouring woodland has further expanded and improved this true rural idyll. With chickens, geese, ducks and now bee hives in the new wooded area, this is a true return to nature that’s very much in tune with yurt living."
