Lochranza, Isle of Arran

Lochranza Castle, Isle of ArranLochranza is the most northerly of Arran's villages and is located in the north-western corner of Arran.

The village is set on the shore of Loch Ranza, a small sea loch. Lochranza is home to Arran's second ferry route, a short trip to Claonaig on the Kintyre Peninsula south of Tarbert. The ferry operates during summer months only.

The whisky distillery opened in 1995, and is easily spotted with its copper roof.

Castle ruins are located on a curved shingle spit that projects from the southern side of Lochranza.

Lochranza is home to a healthy red deer population and, on the northern shore, grey seals are found year-round. Otters and golden eagles are also spotted in the area.
