  • We stopped here on a drive round the island with the kids and they enjoyed exploring the ruins of the castle.  more »
  • Misty morning visit which only made the castle even more picturesque. Beautiful location with boats resting in the harbour.  more »
  • Ok, not the most exciting castle to visit but still very pleasant. The location itself is well worth the journey and the ruins are in generally fine condition. A very pleasant way of passing away some...  more »
  • Scotland has a lot of castles in all shapes sizes etc. This one is perfect at a nice sunset with the river mouth, tiny harbour, hills on the mainland all around you. Its on a little spit of land in the middle of a valley of towering slopes and that aloan sets the scene but catch it at full moon, a misty morning or a nice sunset and its a magical place to relax
  • Lovely remains of a grand house, been for a few visits, always sunny but windy. Plenty of information on plaques Great trying to imaging the missing floors walls and people
  • These are nice remains of a castle sited at the mouth of a small river. The scenery is stunning and if you get here on a gloomy day, the setting is eerie. On a sunny day, the spot is perfect for pictures. Lochranza can be reached by car or bike on a day trip from the ferry terminal (in the summer, longer days). There are some bus services as well. As it is ruins, do not expect a fancy museum.
  • Stunning the Isle of Arran a beautiful island steeped in history you must visit this Castle what more can I say a beautiful Castle
  • Incredible location, interesting ruin.
