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 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.

We are delighted to now have electric car charging available on site.

Other green features include solar lighting, luxury waterless compost toilets, wood fired heating and cooking in the yurts, green electricity, upcycled furniture, local products, plastic free bathroom products….and the list goes on, both in the business management and all across the site.

Looking forward to Spring
- posted 29th January 2022

Spring brings colour and scent to Arran, with wild garlic, bluebells and vibrant green leaves, it is a delight to the senses and welcome relief from the storms and grey of winter. Book a Spring break and reconnect with nature, relax and enjoy gentle walks, seas breeze, forest glades and mountain views.

On site we have snowdrops, wild garlic, bluebells, red campion, primroses and many other wild flowers through the spring into summer. There are country lanes from site to wander along and enjoy the bird song, butterflies and wild flowers, along with views of the hills and sea. Nearby there’s woods, waterfalls and of course the beach to enjoy.
