Kildonan Hotel, Arran

Kildonan Hotel, Arran – Unwind and forget your troubles at a small, family run hotel.

Perched on the southern-most tip of Arran with panoramic views to die for.  The hotel is located right on the seafront, the beach literally stone’s throw away. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde the hotel is right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife.

You can see seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. If you are fortunate enough, occasionally you can see basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months.  Along with an array of birds-of-prey including eagles, peregrines, buzzards and more…

Pladda Island sits directly across the sound with its recognisable lighthouse and ever changing silhouette playing host to a large colony of seagulls and gannets.

The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old. The tasteful addition of extended bistro and lounge area with floor to ceiling windows allow residents and diners to gaze for miles over a cup of tea, breakfast or an evening meal.


The kitchen offers something for everyone; being this close to the sea a variety of seafood dishes is served including ‘what we are told by many’ the best fish & chips on the island! All food prepared fresh by highly qualified chefs and served by friendly well-trained waiting staff. Nothing is too much trouble (within our means of course). We aim to make your stay one to remember here on Arran.


The bistro/dining room has recently extended to incorporate a beautiful new & modern bar.

Enjoy the amazing views, soak in the atmosphere and join some of our friendly Arran locals for ‘wee dram’.
