The Complete Guide to Visiting Lochranza on the Isle of Arran

The village of Lochranza on the Isle of Arran is located in an exceptionally picturesque area on the north of the island.

Although it is mostly visited for the small ferry terminal that connects the island to Claonaig on the mainland, Lochranza is also worth visiting for its tourist attractions.

The village lies at the foot of dramatic mountains that encircle it to the south while a small scenic bay opens up to the Firth of Clyde and the Campbeltown peninsula to the north.
