A Guardian review to be proud of

 Winner AA small campsite of the year Seal shore Camping and Touring Site. Please book your pitch or camping pod in advance to avoid disappointment

From your pitch on our beautiful family site, beside our own private beach, you will be afforded unsurpassed views - from our closest neighbour, Pladda island with its lighthouse, to the coast of Northern Ireland. In between, the Kintyre peninsula, the Ayrshire coast and, most impressive of all, the volcanic plug of granite that is Ailsa Craig.

2019 Winner of The Guardians "20 of the best campsites in UK and Europe by public transport: readers’ travel tips"

Winning tip: Isle of Arran, North Ayrshire

A train journey to Ardrossan from Glasgow, a 50-minute ferry across to Brodick, Isle of Arran, and a short but beautiful bus ride will bring you to the gate of Seal Shore campsite, Kildonan, on the extreme south of the island. It’s a truly magical location, looking across to the islet of Pladda and the Ayrshire coast. Expect to see seals and otters from your tent. Great pub serving food next to site. The circular island bus stops at the campsite gate, making it easy to explore the rest of this stunning place.

Lots of deer to be seen on Arran

2015- Seal Shore Campsite Arran was voted in the top 100 (top 5 in Scotland) Campsites in Great Britain by both Practical Caravan Magazine and Practical Motorhome Magazine.

Wildlife thrives here. Otters, gannets, porpoises, dolphins, basking sharks and grey seals are regular visitors. Rockpools abound with a myriad of aquatic animals. Red squirrels and red deer can be found on the Island, golden eagles soar above the mountains.

Maritime activity is always within view. Pleasure craft, merchant shipping and military vessels are a regular occurrence - including the occasional submarine.

The Isle of Arran Nursery in Gambia project

There is a donation jar in the campsite which has helped to raise funds for the project. All non refundable deposits are put there. Watch a video from 2017 of what we have done so far in building and running the Isle of Arran Nursery in Gambia project.
