The Carradale Hotel

Right in the heart of the village the hotel offers something for everyone, from lunch time bar meals to evenings in the dining room. Lounge bar, and a genuine 'local' (the Cruban) are a good place to visit after a round of golf. Sit out in the sunshine on the decking and gaze across to Arran. a real holiday hotel .

Torrisdale Organic Tannery

Mary's tannery is quite unique as she tans in the 'old-fashioned' way using no chemicals. She may well be working when you visit, and the marvellous sheepskin rugs are a great buy. But lots of other things to browse at in her shop so don't pass by the black and white woolley sheep at the Castle entrance.


An easy and helpful site to show you time-tables and prices. Either come here via Arran or Tarbert, or just take a few trips while you're staying. Lots of offers and bargains if you island hop, or add to your party. It's all there.
