Moss Wood has a range of facilities. Park on the shore-side where the coast can be enjoyed or at the main entrance, and take a walk up through Moss Wood along the Poetry Trail. A steep walk in places, the Poetry Trail is a loop punctuated with places to stop and read, to stop and think. Read nature poetry from throughout the ages, stop at the Blether Stane, or taking the spur to the Viewing Point back south across the Kyles. Moss Wood connects to the West Island Way – take the Poetry Trail and the spur to the Viewing Point – and then take the Stag’s Trod further up (steeply) till you reach the West Island Way. From there, head south towards Port Bannatyne or north along the boundary of the Community Forest. From the viewing point, you can also explore interesting heritage features such as the old WW2 bunker, kayak shelter, Balnakailly settlement, and the SSSI oak woodland.

Cleghorn Farm

11 units · Glamping, Tents250 acres · Lanark, Scotland
*PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ONLY OPEN FOR WEEKEND BOOKINGS FOR CAMPING. THE CABIN IS AVAILABLE FOR MIDWEEK BOOKINGS* Cleghorn Farm is a mixed farm just north east of the market town of Lanark. Comprised of 250 acres of fields and woodland and bounded to the south by Mouse Water, it is a beautiful spot to get away from it all without having to leave it all behind if you don't want to. The fields are grazed and cultivated but the woodlands are much as they were at the end of the last ice age with spectacular walks along Cleghorn Glen with the chance to see badgers, bats, deer and all manner of birds among the towering pine and beech trees. The Mouse Water (pronounced moose) tumbles down along the edge of the farm and has some glorious pools for swimming, shallows for paddling and some spectacular water falls before it joins the River Clyde.

Woodland glamping near Lochranza guide

Overview

Visitors traveling by ferry to the Isle of Arran from Claonaig on the Scottish mainland’s Kintyre peninsula arrive in Lochranza. Set on a bay on Arran’s north coast, the village draws visitors who want to tour the Arran Distillery, play a round on the nine-hole golf course and view the ruined 13th-century Lochranza Castle, perched on a promontory. Located on the ‘string’ road that loops around the island, Lochranza is a good base for exploring Arran and enjoying activities such as hiking and watersports. While there are few private sites in Lochranza itself, it's within easy reach of those offering RV parking, tent pitching and glamping, and wild camping is also an option.

Where to go

Lochranza

A stone’s throw from the Lochranza Centre, from where you can embark on organized outdoor activities such as abseiling and canoeing, Lochranza Campsite enjoys a quiet setting surrounded by mountain scenery. You can head out on a trail directly from the site while keeping an eye out for a herd of red deer that is known to roam around. The site has mostly grass pitches suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes, as well as glamping pods. 

Brodick

Those traveling to Arran from Ardrossan on the Scottish mainland arrive in Brodick, the island’s main village. Fourteen miles south of Lochranza, the main draw here is Brodick Castle and the village’s proximity to the trail leading up Goatfell, Arran’s tallest mountain. In a stunning setting, looked over by Goatfell, the small and basic Glen Rosa Campsite has a selection of tent pitches.

Blackwaterfoot

Thirty-five minutes south along the string road from Lochranza, in the southwest of the island, the small village of Blackwaterfoot is set around a pretty harbor and sandy beach with views of the Mull of Kintyre. Nearby attractions include the standing stones of Machrie Moor and the King’s Caves, which you can reach by a walk along the coast. Two miles north of the village, Bridgend Campsite has spacious grass and hardstanding pitches for tents, campers, motorhomes and caravans. A mile further north, Balmichael Glamping has self-catering glamping pods.

When to go

While the summer months promise the sunniest conditions for exploring the Isle of Arran, it has a fairly mild climate, making it a year-round destination. The summer months can get crowded (especially during the school holidays in July and August) so visiting just outside of peak season, such as April or October, is ideal. If you do visit in the height of summer, it’s a good idea to book everything in advance.

Know before you go

  • Some campsites in the area are seasonal: check opening dates before traveling.
  • If you choose to wild camp, be sure to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. 
  • While you can get around Arran by bus, having your own transport offers far more flexibility.
  • Several ferries a day make the crossing from the mainland to Arran.
