Pirnmill is a small village on the Isle of Arran in Scotland with a population of roughly 90 people.

Get in

By bus

Pirnmill is served by the 324 bus service which is operated by Stagecoach [1]. All buses going to Brodick (except the 07:52 bus heading for Lamlash via Brodick) connect with the CalMac [2] ferry there. Timetables are available on board the CalMac ferries, on board the buses, at most convenience stores on the island and on the Stagecoach website.

By car

The A841 costal road passes through Pirnmill, as well as most other places on the island.

Get around

The best way to get around and explore the area is by foot. Cars can also be taken up the track to Penrioch.


  • Great views of Kintyre!
  • The surrounding hills
  • The spectacular sunsets - the sky can turn into very strange colours at times!


  • Go walking into the hills and see Penrioch and the abandoned houses of High Pirnmill.


  • The Lighthouse Tearoom (telephone 01770 850 240) offers excellent food. People come from all over the island just to eat here! Try a world famous meringue as well!
  • The Pirnmill Village Store and Post Office offers food for those on a self catering budget. It is the only 'proper' village shop between Brodick and Blackwaterfoot if you are coming around the north of the island (the campsite shop and tearoom at Lochranza does not offer much and is not open in winter), and the staff are helpful and friendly. Telephone 01770 850 235.


The nearest pub is the Catacol Bay Hotel [3], which is 5 miles away in Catacol. Chilled bottles of beer are also available from the Pirnmill Store.


There are one or two self-catering properties in Pirnmill - notably the 3 star rated Clisham (telephone 01770 850 294 to book), otherwise there are a few rooms at the nearby Catacol Bay Hotel (phone 830 231).

Get out

The rest of the island, including Lochranza, makes a good day out. Skipness, on Kintyre, is also a good day trip.
