Glen Rosa Campsite is a situated in one of the most beautiful and majestic glens in Arran. More akin to wild camping, we are right at the foot of the Arran hills, which makes it an ideal place to base yourself for climbing Goatfell, the ridges, or exploring many of the gentle walks that originate from here. Maybe you would prefer just to relax and enjoy this special place.
The Rosa burn flows next to the campsite and there are pools where it is deep enough to bathe; the famous Glen Rosa blue pool is only 1/2 mile away. We are also within walking distance of Brodick Castle, Arran Aromatics, restaurants and bars. There is also a swimming pool and leisure centre that is open to the public at the nearby Auchrannie resort (1 mile). We also have delicious home baking, snacks and drinks available to take away from our farmhouse (The Scone and Jam). Free wifi access is available from there. Campfires are allowed (please inform us if you intend to have a campfire). Wood can be purchased from us. Our facilities are basic: there is toilets and sinks with cold water only. There are no showers, electricity or hot water. The water is drinkable. Our campsite has no electric hook ups and is set over uneven ground, and therefore, is not suitable for large motor homes. We have limited space for camper vans.
The cost is £4.00 per person per night. Children under 12 are £2.00 per night and 6 and under are free of charge. Dogs are welcome, there is no charge but please keep them tethered.
