Welcome to the Best Western Kinloch Hotel.

A hidden gem on the Isle of Arran.

The Best Western Kinloch Hotel on the Isle of Arran offers coastal comfort and spectacular scenery. Overlooking the Mull of Kintyre, the hotel sits in a quiet, rural village where the only thing you can't escape from is peace and quiet itself!

On the Isle of Arran, life is lived at a relaxed pace. It's a real opportunity to slow down and take stock, with the chance to catch a glimpse of roaming deer or basking seals, walk to the Fairy Glen or sit in the cave where Robert the Bruce watched the spider "try, try again".

You'll find a view of the sea from every part of the island, so take a break from reality and visit us at our miniature Scotland!
