About this property

  • Butt Lodge occupies a prime position in the valley which is reached by a private road that leads from the main road to the property.

    The property was built in 1896 in a traditional style and has since been sensitively refurbished and reconfigured by the current owners to be used as a successful B&B. Set over two floors the interior layout is extremely versatile, it works well in its current format or it could be utilised as a spacious family home.

The principal reception rooms are to the front of the property and take full advantage of the views on offer.

Local information

  • Butt Lodge is situated in a private setting at the northern tip of the Isle of Arran, within the village of Lochranza.
  • Lochranza is famous for its castle and stunning views over the Kintyre peninsula with a regular ferry for Claonaig departing from Lochranza pier. The village benefits from a range of local amenities including a hotel, restaurant and distillery. Nearby Lochranza Golf Course and the Lochranza outdoor centre provide a range of activities. The surrounding area provides some of Arran's most scenic walks, not only along the shoreline but also through the hills.
  • The Isle of Arran is Scotland's most southerly island and is also one of the most easily accessible. Approximately 60 miles round, it has some of the finest sandy beaches, excellent walking and rambling and both sea and trout fishing. Tourist attractions include Arran Aromatics, the Arran Heritage Museum, the Lochranza Distillery and Brodick Castle & Gardens. The island is often referred to as “Scotland in miniature”, as it is divided into highland and lowland areas by the Highland Boundary Fault. It is a popular destination for geologists, due to the substantial volcanic activity around 16 million years ago in the Tertiary period. There are many stone circles and standing stones dating from Neolithic times, including those on Machrie Moor and the Giants' Graves above Whiting Bay.
