Sea­sonal cheer is just a short hop away

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Travel -

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.

IS­LAND IDYLL: The Kin­loch Ho­tel on Ar­ran of­fers a warm wel­come, great ser­vice and the finest lo­cal pro­duce.
