About Lochranza Youth Hostel

Award-winning Lochranza Youth Hostel sits in a beautiful lochside village in the north of the Isle of Arran. Surrounded by hills, on the banks of Loch Ranza and opposite a 13th century castle, it’s a wonderful place to get away from it all.

Lochranza is an ideal base for tackling the many trails and ridges of the Arran mountains including Goat Fell, the island's highest peak. For the less ambitious the Cock of Arran walk, which provides a beautifully scenic low level trek, starts and finishes at the youth hostel. Experienced cyclists will enjoy the challenge of the circular 58 mile ride round the island. Arran has many other activities on offer including off-road biking, pony-trekking, fishing, golfing and watersports.

Arran’s only whisky distillery is a short walk away and wildlife is abundant with seals, eagles and even red deer roaming in the grounds!
Excellent budget and group accommodation is available, but Lochranza Youth Hostel is also family friendly with private en-suite rooms, a spacious self-catering kitchen and laundry service. It’s also a popular choice as a RentaHostel for Exclusive Use. Winner of the prestigious Green Tourism Business Goldstar Award 2011, it’s ranked as one of the UK’s top ten greenest businesses.

The youth hostel benefits from a great bus connection, with the bus stop only a 5 minute walk away.

Dogs are now welcome when guests book a private room (small fee charged). Please book in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 3 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
