Enjoy some privacy in the quaint new addition to The Douglas Hotel. Banner Lodge is pretty special.


Banner Lodge is the former home to the local newspaper, The Arran Banner. Arran’s weekly paper was established in 1974 and was under the ownership and editorship of John Millar, who worked and printed the newspaper from the lodge.


The paper still attracts subscribers from around the world for its often unique and witty writing style. It is also famous for a very high readership among the local population, in 1984 it received a Guinness World Record recognising this fact. The entry reads: "The Arran Banner, founded in 1974, has a readership of more than 97 per cent in Britain’s seventh largest off-shore island".


With some beautiful details, such as the unique stained glass window, this is the ideal place to escape for a romantic break. Open plan, with a gorgeous mezzanine bedroom level, the large bed is accessed by spiral staircase making it wonderfully cosy.


The Lodge is complete with underfloor heating through the large living area, which includes a sofa bed option enabling comfortable accommodation for a further 2 guests. This is a perfect base for your stay whilst discovering all that Arran has to offer.


As well as this the Banner Lodge is pet friendly, so your pooch can come and enjoy Arran too!
