Seasonal cheer is just a short hop away
THE arrival of autumn and winter on our shores needn’t be something to dread, particularly when the delights of a getaway in Arran are just a short hop on the ferry away.
If you are looking for tranquillity, idyllic scenery and a warm, traditional Scottish hospitality, then there has never been a better time to explore the many attractions that this beautiful island has to offer.
Whether golfing, walking or just generally enjoying Scotland’s great outdoors appeals to you, then there are few better places than the largest island in the firth of Clyde.
Travelling by ferry to Arran is now also much more affordable, with a new system coming into place last year where journeys across the water from the mainland are now charged at the equivalent value as the journey would cost by road.
And if you are savvy, you can even offset the cost of your ferry journey by taking advantage of the special autumn and winter break offer from the Kinloch Hotel.
This family-owned hotel right on the beach front in Blackwaterfoot offers stylish and comfortable accommodation alongside the warmest of welcomes and great service.
For stays between October 26th, 2018 and March 1st, 2019, you can enjoy two nights bed & breakfast in a seafront-facing room including return car and passenger ferry tickets, a complimentary pre-dinner drink and a welcome Arran Aromatics gift on arrival for just £39.50pppn.
You can also enjoy the wonderful restaurant, which uses only the finest local produce like Arran lamb, Kilbrannan Sound seafood, Wooleys oatcakes, Island cheese, Arran Dairies ice cream & Kirkend strawberries, meaning your tastebuds will be in for a real treat.
And even if our famously unpredictable weather takes a turn for the worse, there is a heated swimming pool and children’s pool on-site to keep everyone occupied.
