Owned and run by the same family for over 30 years, the Catacol Bay Hotel is a small, friendly, fully licensed hotel nestling in the hills at the picturesque north end of Arran. Situated on the sea shore 1.5 miles from the Lochranza ferry terminal and approximately 16 miles from the main ferry terminal at Brodick, the hotel boasts stunning views across the Kibrannan Sound and the Kintyre peninsula.
We have a comfortable public bar with a selection of real ales (find us in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide), draught beers and lagers, spirits and malt whiskies. We serve an extensive range of meals and snacks in the bar daily from 12noon - 10pm, or enjoy our famous Sunday Buffet served 12noon - 4pm every Sunday throughout the year.
Outside there is a large beer garden with children's play area, the perfect place to watch the sun go down.
We also have our own mooring for yachts situated directly in front of the hotel, which is rated as being suitable for a boat of up to 20 tonnes displacement in weather of up to force 9. Access to shore is by a concrete jetty approximately 100 yards south of the hotel. Please feel free to contact us for more information on this
About the Isle of Arran...
Often referred to as 'Scotland in Miniature', the Isle of Arran captures many aspects of the beauty of Scotland as a whole. The towering granite peaks in the north invite climbers and hill walkers, while the rolling green farmland in the south and the sandy bays overlooked by palm trees benefit from the warmer climate of the Gulf Stream. The island's wildlife is outstanding, with deer, pheasant, seals, otters and eagles all to be spotted. There are trails and pathways for all abilities, enabling the exploration of Arran's stunning coastline, ancient historic sites and peaceful hills and glens. Bicycle hire, watersports facilities and no fewer than seven golf courses are available for active visitors to enjoy, while history and heritage are catered for at Brodick and Lochranza castles and the Arran Heritage Museum.
