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.
 
For more details about the accommodation please see Our Yurts, or to enquire about prices and availability go to Bookings. To find out more about us and Runach Arainn go to About Us. Or find out what's been going on recently via our Facebook page at Runach Arainn Facebook
 
Earlier in the year we hosted a young Scottish artist, Ellis O'Connor, during her stay on Arran. Read her account of her trip at Glamping on Arran.
 
We've also had a visit from Scottish blogger Tristan Cameron-Harper who produced some wonderful images of Arran during his stay. You can read his blog about his trip to Arran at North Blog - Runach Arainn
