How to find us

ISLE OF ARRAN lies in the Firth of Clyde, just off the Ayrshire Coast in the West of Scotland.

Bringing your car

In the high season and major holidays it is very important to reserve a place for your car on the car ferry. This can be done at, the ferry operator’s website. Passenger ferry tickets can be booked on the website or purchased at the pier terminal building.



To reach Kildonan, you turn left on exiting the harbour in Brodick. You follow the main road through Lamlash and Whiting Bay for about 18 kilometres. You turn left off the main road at the small sign for Kildonan on the right hand side of the road. (At the turn-off there is a small red and green house facing you.)
This road takes you down to the shore. As you drive through the village you will see a development of seven white  detached houses on your right immediately before a large red-brick colonial style house. Look for the sign GRIANAN towards the far end.
