Kildonan Sea Front, Isle of Arran, Scotland.

This evening, I am posting information on the village of Kildonan which sits as the southern tip of the Isle of Arran, off the west coast of Scotland.

The name means ‘Church of Donan’ with latter probably an early Christian missionary from Ireland. This suggests there was a community here about 1500 years ago, and possibly much earlier.

Kildonan is a holiday location centred around a small permanent population and benefits from:

  • Walks (hiking trails).
  • Views
  • A long sandy beach known as Silver Sands.
  • One hotel
  • Wildlife including seals and otters.
  • A ruined castle.
  • Self-catering holiday accommodation (vacation rental).

Coastal view including island known as Pladda.
