Good place to take toddler's on a bad day. Choice of play areas small slides, larger slides, ball areas, soft play areas and pay to ride toys. Can get snacks to eat, buy t shirts. Seats for adults, toilets etc. Outside area can be used in good weather. Not huge but enough to pass the time. Kept nice and clean... More

Great clean facilities however it was very cold when we visited. It would be nice if there was a kids entertainment team/ crafts etc. They have the space to do this.

We used the playbarn on a wet morning. It's a fantastic facility for the island. Staff were friendly, food decent and most importantly the equipment was in good, clean condition. Not too busy the morning we visited and our daughter had a great time.

My young kids loved playing here, both inside and outside. They had the best wifi on the resort and a big screen TV to watch the Olympics. If you have to be stuck in a play place, this one was top notch.

I found this to be smaller than I thought it would be. That aside though, the kids loved it and it was well ran and very clean.

We frequented the playbarn on our trip to Arran with our daughter. It is free for babies who can't walk yet and it was great to give her a little break here in the Toddler area. We bought coffees and tray bakes on our visits.

At Auchrannie but visitors allowed for £5 each. Good for a wet day with play area including a slide. Cafe with tables for parents, etc. Table football at 50p per go - first to 6 goals is the winner.
