Family Adventures

Fun for all

Whether you are eight or eighty, Arran will have something for your whole family to enjoy when experiencing all our beautiful island has to offer.

Multi-generational holidays are becoming the norm now and beaches, glens, restaurants, cafes and activities all cater for everyone, so you can be sure that the littlest, and the biggest, kids will be happy!

There’s so many activities on Arran that families can enjoy together, or sit back and watch as some of the others enjoy! Brodick Castle and Arran Heritage Museum are firm favourites offering lots of history, and also opportunity for young ones to play – whether at the castle’s adventure playground or clambering onto the museum’s tractor! Farm tours at Bellevue and/or alpaca trekking will put a smile on everyone’s faces or why not consider horseriding, kayaking, or segways? Build castles with golden sand, go crabbing in little rock pools, or search shorelines for dinosaur footprints created thousands of years ago. There’s even a new Arran Snorkel Trail that allows swimmers to see exactly what’s under the sea!

Restaurants, cafes and pubs welcome families and there’s often a children’s menu, with some delicious tempting treats (sometimes the grown-ups are known to indulge in kids portions too). Remember that licensing laws may request children to vacate premises by a certain time, so please be respectful of this.

Sometimes on Arran of course, it rains - we wouldn’t have such lush stunning environment if it didn’t! Remember it’s only fairy rain – it’s just sometimes they can be very big fairies! Oh, and there’s a playbarn at Auchrannie if you forget to pack the wellies!
