Let’s face it, no one ever objects to being given a jewel as a Christmas present.
A jewel of an island, that is.
Arran is one of Scotland’s true treasures, right up there with Bali and Santorini as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Best of all, it’s just over two hours from Glasgow.
So why not treat a loved one – or even the whole family – to an Arran escape as a Christmas gift this year?
Amazing Arran resort
Auchrannie is Scotland’s first employee-owned resort, meaning that every team member will work hard to make your stay as amazing as possible (maybe that’s why it has bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence).
Facilities include no less than three restaurants, a bar, luxurious spa, 20 metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room, fitness suite and sports hall.
5-star luxury lodges
All of the lovely, airy lodges have views over Goat Fell mountain and expansive living, kitchen and dining areas.
You will have your own private patio or balcony, as well as a TV and full WiFi.
This Big Deal on a two night lodge stay is available until the 6th February 2019 and includes free transport from the ferry to the resort if you’re not driving.
You can choose from two options. Option one is for a two night stay in a two bedroom lodge, sleeping up to six people. Option two is for a two night stay in a three bedroom lodge, sleeping up to eight people.
Plenty to do
Every inch of Auchrannie resort is modern, sleek and welcoming. Restaurant choices include the relaxed Cruize Bar & Brasserie; Brambles Seafood + Grill with its cosy fireplace; and Eighteen69, which serves Scottish themed tapas in a glasshouse overlooking the gardens.
If you’d like to make this a family trip, then the kids will love the activity-filled children’s play barn with its three-tier indoor mega soft play.
There is also a teen zone, internet area, big screen TV, library and free Wifi. Dogs are welcome for a £30 supplement for one, or £40 supplement for two.
Auchrannie Resort has a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Based on reviews like this, it’s easy to see why:
‘Excellent. From start to finish this has been an excellent return visit. The room was beautiful, comfortable and had all facilities required with extra touches, the ESPA was even better than I remember – thank you Sarah for a fabulous massage, the relaxation room being the best I have ever experienced. Delicious food and superb service at every encounter made this a lovely return to Auchrannie. Thank you.’
Give the gift of Arran
Whether you fancy a leisure break with a bit of pool, sauna and spa time; an intimate escape with your partner, or a fun getaway with family and friends, Auchrannie can be anything that you want it to be.
So why not book yourself an Arran adventure between now and February?
And needless to say, this luxury lodge stay would make a very romantic Christmas gift as well…
