Kildonan Hotel

Small Hotel

Kildonan, Kildonan, Isle Of Arran, KA27 8SE

    Experience the luxury of our country hotel situated directly on the beach at the southern tip of the island, looking over panoramic views of Pladda Island, Ailsa Craig and beyond.

    Unwind and forget your troubles at our small, family run hotel. Built in the 17th Century, it is one of the 7th oldest licenced Inns in Scotland and historically a destination that families have aspired to visit for well over 100 years. 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 we are right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife. We have seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. We are also fortunate to have occasional basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months and 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. And of course the famous Ailsa Craig, ‘Paddy’s Milestone’, a bird sanctuary now but is renowned for its granite which is still used for curling stones today.

    The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old, while 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.
