Family Bookings

For family bookings we are a great option. We have several family rooms, including some en-suites. With the added bonus of a self catering kitchen, families can save the cost of having to eat out.

If you are wanting to come away to the Isle of Arran then Lochranza Youth Hostel may be the ideal choice for your family booking. We have excellent facilities including : -

  • Family bunk rooms including some en-suite rooms
  • 5 bedded rooms which include a double bed
  • Individual bed side lights
  • 2 lounges with TV and DVD
  • Board games
  • For small children we have high chairs, travel cots and baby baths
  • Internet access and wi-fi (charges apply)
  • Large garden
  • Child friendly walks from the hostel
  • Pony trekking nearby

For safety reasons we request that children under 7 do not use a top bunk bed

There are lots of places to visit on the island that are great for kids. The Balmichael Centre near Shiskine has lots of activities including some for rainy days. The best beaches are further south but kids love exploring the rock pools in the North.

Insider Tip. With lots of wildlife around, don't forget to bring a pair of binoculars and a camera. If you are going out at night,bring a torch as we have no street lighting


Once you have checked in you have day time access to your room and the rest of the hostel facilities for the duration of your booking.

If you want to be active, we have lots of walks locally and around the island. Pony trekking is available at North Sannox and there is some good mountain biking in the forests. There is also a swimming pool at the Auchrannie Hotel in Brodickwhich is open to non residents to help you unwind after all that exercise.

Bed and Breakfasts and hotels are great places to stay but the cost of having to eat out all the time soon adds up. With a large kitchen and dining area at the hostel you can choose to cook at the hostel and save money for other treats.
