The Owner Says
Monamore is a 20ft luxury insulated yurt located at the lower end of our orchard amongst ash and sycamore trees. It contains a log burning stove (incorporating a small oven and hob for cooking), solar powered lighting and smart phone charging point. It sleeps up to six people via a double bed and two double futons. Alternate sleeping configurations can be provided if preferred, including a cot. All bedding is provided. It has its own dedicated private bathroom housed within our nearby bathroom block and all towels are provided. There are shared pot-washing and laundry facilities housed within the bathroom block.
Inside the yurt has a laminate wood floor and a large 6ft larch wood wheel flooding the yurt with light or providing wonderful star gazing opportunities. In addition to the double bed there are comfortable futon sofa/beds, a food preparation area, a dining table and chairs and all crockery and cooking utensils.
Outside there is a picnic table and a firepit with log seating and slow cooking equipment.
About Runach Arainn
Suitable ForYurts sleep 2–6 people each, with all welcome, including disabled access. No dogs, however, due to animals onsite.
NearbyIt's a 15 minute walk to Torrylinn Beach, a vast sandy space when the tide is out with excellent views across to Ailsa Craig in the distance, an almost perfectly conical shaped little island jutting out from the sea. From the yurts you can gain access directly onto forest farm tracks and footpaths, ideal for a casual stroll or some light mountain biking (or for something more serious try cycling the entire 60-mile circuit of the island). If you don't have your own you can hire bikes from Arran Adventure Company (01770 302244) who also offer a wide range of other outdoor activities – the gorge walking excursions are particularly thrilling. The island also boasts a staggering 7 different golf courses – so, if you bring your clubs, there's one for every day of the week!
Food & DrinkIt is a 10 minute walk to the nearest restaurant, The Lagg Hotel (01770 870 255), where landlady Mary is accompanied by friendly staff and an excellent chef – great for an evening meal but also well worth an afternoon stop for their scones! The nearest shop is a local store in Blackwaterfoot, which is a 15 minute drive. Blackwaterfoot also contains a number of restaurants and shops.
