Lochranza Hotel offers an incredibly exciting proposition for buyers looking for a property on the increasingly sought-after Isle of Arran.
The property houses nine en-suite bedrooms on the first floor, with a further five bedrooms and a lounge on the second floor, currently staff/owner accommodation. The ground floor accommodates a public lounge, dining room, a bar, the kitchens/serveries, multiple stores/cellars, and an office. The property is accompanied by generous outdoor space and private parking, and enjoys a fabulous waterfront setting with breath-taking views. As well as being a popular destination for holidaymakers and tourists, the Isle of Arran offers an enviable lifestyle in a picturesque setting, yet with all the daily essentials one could ever need, as well as excellent transport links across the island and to the mainland.
The property is entered through double doors into a hall, off of which a lounge, a dining room, and WCs can be accessed. The dining room features a delightful fireplace with a period-inspired insert, and benefits from direct access to the kitchens. The kitchens are supplemented by a number of store rooms/cellars, and a lounge bar completes the ground-floor accommodation, accessed from the hall or externally, via a terrace.
Stairs from the hall lead to a landing on the first floor, where nine well-presented bedrooms can be found. Seven of the bedrooms benefit from en-suite bathrooms, whilst the remaining two are supplemented by en-suite shower rooms. The front-facing rooms take full advantage of the property’s waterfront position, with inspiring, tranquil views over the water. The landing also affords access to a balcony, a separate shower room, and a fire exit to the rear. A further door from the landing conceals the stairwell to the second floor, which is currently being used as staff/owner accommodation. The versatile rooms on this floor comprise a spacious lounge, five bedrooms, a store, and a shower room. The second-floor rooms require a degree of modernisation, giving the new owner a fantastic opportunity to harness their creativity and upgrade the spaces to their own taste and requirements.
The property is warmed by Calor gas heating and is mostly double glazed. Furthermore, it also benefits from solar panels on the roof for lower electricity bills.
Externally, the property is accompanied by a garden and terrace, with both areas currently used as outdoor eating/drinking areas – perfect for soaking up the summer sun with a breath-taking outlook over the water. Private parking is provided for multiple vehicles.

Lochranza is thought to be the most scenically attractive of Arran’s villages and is sheltered by the surrounding hills. The village focal point is Lochranza Castle, which sits on a shingle spit. On the southern side of the loch, other attractions include the Isle of Arran Distillery, which began production in 1995, the large population of red deer, golden eagles, seals and otters and an 18-hole golf course. There is a ferry terminus that allows quick access to the stunning West of Scotland via Claonaig. Kintyre here we come! The village has an active local community, post office, surgery and the ‘Stags’ restaurant, which is renowned for excellent food. Primary schooling is available at the nearby village of Pirnmill, with secondary schooling in Lamlash.
Brodick (Arran’s main town) has two larger Co-Op supermarkets and a full range of professional services. Brodick is the port from which regular sailings throughout the day, serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne, lead to the mainland at Ardrossan. Commuters and travellers now benefit from Road Equivalent Tarrif (RET) ferry fares, which are substantially lower than before. Ardrossan has a main line rail station, with trains to Glasgow that connect with the ferry times, and is approximately 30 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Prestwick International Airport is 16 miles to the south of Ardrossan, with Glasgow International Airport 24 miles east of Ardrossan.
