The Runach Arainn site is set in a small orchard near the village of Kilmory where we have three Scottish made yurts. Each yurt comes fully equipped with all you will need for your holiday, including bedding, towels, crockery and cooking utensils. Two yurts can sleep up to six people and the third can accommodate up to four people. Each is ideal for a romantic break or as a base for an adventurous family holiday.

Yurts (or ‘Gers’ as they are somtimes called) are a traditional dwelling from Mongolia that have been used for many centuries. We first stayed in a Yurt eight years ago and have loved them ever since. They provide a fabulous place to stay with an atmosphere that is unique and tranquil. Paul at Highland Yurts has done a wonderful job in hand-building our three larch wood frame Yurts. We’re sure you’ll love them as much as we do.
We have two 20ft diameter Yurts that can sleep up to 6 people and an 18ft diameter Yurt that can sleep up to 4 people. They each have the following features;
Luxury double bed plus two futon sofa-beds for other guests (double futons in the larger yurts and singles in the smaller yurt).
Fully equipped with all you will need (towels, bedding and crockery) – just bring your clothes!
Wood burning stove/cooker (including an oven) for heat and cooking.
Insulated for year round comfort.
Private bathroom with shower (including a composting toilet).
Outdoor firepit with cooking utensils and picnic bench.
Solar powered lighting.
Shared pot washing and laundry facilities (washing machine).
A romantic atmosphere!
ISLE OF ARRAN
The Isle of Arran is about 20 miles long and 10 miles wide and sits in the Firth of Cylde. The 10 mile ferry crossing from Ardrossan takes 50 minutes – so we are less than 2 hours from Glasgow. For such a small island Arran contains a wide variety of sceneries and landscapes. To the North is the mountainous Goat Fell range – they may look benign from Brodick, but they are anything but. If you don’t fancy the high level walks there are beautiful valley walks like Glen Rosa or more wooded walks in the South of the island like the Glenashdale Falls.
There are wonderful beaches all around the island – Blackwaterfoot in the West, Torrylinn in the South and Lochranza in the North.
Cycling is popular all around the island. Mountain bikers can make use of the forest tracks that criss-cross the island whilst road cyclists can enjoy the 60 mile circular route around the island’s coast road.
Golf is another popular sport on the island. There are seven golf courses all around the island.
Sailing and kayaking are also popular with locals and visitors. Arran Adventure Company can arrange all sorts of events from gorge walking, kayaking and archery.
