Covid 19 Changes


As part of re-opening to the public, we completed the UK's self-certification process to confirm that we "have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing". This page outlines important information for you about staying here. Please contact us if you have any questions.

No shared facilities

Prior to Covid-19, the dining area and bathroom were shared areas. Going forward, we are only taking one party per booking, so the bathroom is now private. There is now no cooked breakfast served in the dining room. Instead, a continental breakfast is now served in your private lounge and dining area. As we live on the premises, the hallway is shared, however, the front door will be strictly for your use. We will access the building via a side entrance.


Hand sanitiser will be available as you enter the building, self check-in will be possible too and a deep clean will take place between bookings. We will also provide cleaning products for you should you wish to wipe down the surfaces you frequently touch like light switches and door knobs. As per our standard cleaning practices, your bathroom will be cleaned daily. Lastly, as we encourage bookings via Airbnb, we are using their detailed checklist as a guide for cleaning and also following Scottish Government guidelines.

Travelling here

As you'll know, Arran is an island. The ferry to get here has limited availability, so you will need to book your ferry ASAP. You will need a face mask to board the ferry. Please note that should you develop Covid-19 symptoms and test positive whilst on the island, you will be required to self-isolate for 10-14 days on the island. You cannot use public transport to return home.

Pre-depature testing

The Scottish Government are advising guests to do pre-departure Covid tests. There is not a lot of information on this available and it is not required by law but you can find out more about it on the Calmac website.
