New restrictions in Scotland - We are Still Open!

In light of the recent restrictions that have been introduced in Scotland, in particular across the Central Belt of Scotland, we would like to reassure visitors to Arran that our Lochranza Distillery Visitor Centre is still open to the public 7 days a week.

Our Arran Malt Shop is still open 10am - 4pm and our downstairs coffee bar is still open for takeaway hot and cold drinks and sandwiches.  Please note though that we will not be able to sell any alcohol to takeaway from the coffee bar.

Our twice daily tastings are still available at 12pm and 2.30pm. These must be pre-booked by calling 01770 830 264 or emailing

Instead of the usual format, you will spend time with our guide as they talk you through the drams, processes and history and you will then receive your drams to take away with you in Driver's drams bottles, not for consumption on the premises. The cost of this revised tasting is slightly lower at only £10 for the tasting instead of the usual £15 and still includes the voucher for £5 off the price of a 70cl bottle of malt whisky. These arrangements are hopefully temporary whilst restrictions are in place until the end of October and are subject to change should further clarification come from the Scottish Government. 

We do hope to see you at Lochranza if you have planned a visit over the next couple of weeks for the October holidays. We are here and very much looking forward to giving you a warm welcome.
