Catacol, Isle of Arran

Catacol is a small village on the Isle of Arran, located on the north west side of the island, just a few miles along the coastal road from Lochranza. It derives its name from the old Norse, referring to the 'gully of the cat'. This may have been a reference to Glen Catacol, the steep valley it lies at the bottom of.

Catacol is home to The Twelve Apostles, a picturesque row of identical cottages dating from 1863.

Catacol is an ideal place for relaxing and enjoying the peaceful environment.
