About Glen Rosa Campsite

This site is set in over 30 acres at the foot of the Arran hills, and is in a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the unique flora, fauna, and geology of the area.

Glen Rosa is a ‘back to basic’ campsite and almost wild camping.

There is a toilet block, but no showers or hot water.  Drinking water is available though.

The site is slightly undulating, so there’s not really many level pitches.

They can also accommodate a few camper vans.

What about campfires?

Campfires are allowed!

See our article on cooking outside for ideas on campfire cooking.
