Kildonan is a small but thriving village, the local hall being a community run organisation which hosts various events throughout the year. The reputable Kildonan Hotel, with public bar, is open all year and the area enjoys some fabulous coastal walks. The nearest primary school is in Whiting Bay, just 4 miles to the north, which children are ferried to daily by bus. The island’s high school is in Lamlash.

Arran is a wonderful place to call home. With clean air, clear water and some of Scotland’s most incredible scenery, you can share your island with eagles, otters, red squirrel and deer. The island communities are small enough to become involved, yet big enough to keep you interested and growing. We can’t recommend it enough!

Kildonan is a village on the south coast of the Isle of Arran in the Firth of Clyde. The village is within the parish of Kilmory and derives from Saint Donan who is reputedly buried in the village. Early life in the village revolved around Kildonan Castle, ruined remains of which are still in existence.
The adjacent Old Coastguard House was built in 1885 by Lloyds Insurance Company along with several neighbouring properties enjoying this cliff top aspect across the infamous waters surrounding Pladda and the Firth of Clyde towards Ailsa Craig and beyond. The views are arguably some of the most impressive on Arran.

From Brodick Pier turn left and proceed south travelling through Lamlash, Whiting Bay and Dippen. Turn left down the coast road to Kildonan where the Old Coastguard House is located on the outskirts of the village by the tall pine trees. Please park a further 50 metres along, in the public car park area.

If you intend to travel to Arran from the mainland and want to bring your own transport, please contact Caledonian MacBrayne to reserve the car and check that the ferry is sailing to timetable on the day of travel. Caledonian MacBrayne
