Had a 2 night stay between xmas and new year. Hotel is situated south part of Arran with spectacular views of Pladda island and Aisla Craig, with lovely sunrises and sunsets and a rugged beach where you can watch the seals frolic in the sea.

Had a very enjoyable, comfortable two night stay with friends. Stunning location on the sea front provided many moments watching wildlife (seals, otter, birds) in binoculars from the garden or within the bar when the wind and rain were blowing. Lovely short walks in either direction. Room was very comfortable and clean. Food was good although the fish batter was...

We have visited the Kildonan Hotel a few times over the years and always found it to be an ideal location right in the waterfront. The Hotel has undergone some changes since our last visit and they are definitely for the better. The new bar bistro and restaurant is nice and modern with a good atmosphere and views that make...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unwind and forget your troubles at our small, family run hotel. Built in the 17th Century, it is one of the 7th oldest licensed Inns in Scotland and historically a destination that families have aspired to visit for well over 100 years. Perched on the southern-most tip of Arran with panoramic views to die for, the hotel is located right on the seafront, the beach literally stone's throw away. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde we are right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife. We have seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. We are also fortunate to have occasional basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months and an array of birds-of-prey including eagles, peregrines, buzzards and more... Pladda Island sits directly across the sound with its recognisable lighthouse and ever changing silhouette playing host to a large colony of seagulls and gannets. And of course the famous Ailsa Craig, 'Paddy's Milestone', a bird sanctuary now but is renowned for its granite which is still used for curling stones today. The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old, while the tasteful addition of extended bistro and lounge area with floor to ceiling windows allow residents and diners to gaze for miles over a cup of tea, breakfast or an evening meal. ... more   less
