Title: Guide to accommodation on the Arran Coastal Way.
Post by: Buggiba on August 28, 2017, 02:40:20 pm
Does anyone have any information regarding accommodation on the Arran Coastal Way. I am contemplating taking this on in 2018 and would be grateful for any forthcoming assistance.

Plans are now made for walking the ACW. I will post my accommodation findings on here upon my return in early May 2018.

A small group of us undertook to walk the Arran Coastal Way in April/May 2018 on a reasonable budget. Here follows the accommodation places where we stayed and the prices we paid.

1. Brodick. Brodick Bunkhouse. Behind Douglas Hotel. Unstaffed but accessed via Douglas Hotel Reception. Very clean, tidy and well-equipped. ?25pppn.

2. Lochranza. Youth Hostel. Clean and popular. Reception not open until 5pm. ?21.50pppn.

3. Blackwaterfoot. Blackwaterfoot Lodge B&B. Excellent accommodation and food as well as own bar. Close to other amenities too. ?45pppn.

4. Kilmory Bunkhouse. Good accommodation and facilities. Difficult to find staff. ?21pppn.

5. Burlington Guest House B&B. Excellent facilities and food but up for sale. No facilities nearby. 15 minute walk to nearest bar. ?45pppn.

Further information on request.
