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.

This is ideal for a wet day - on a dryer day there is an outdoor play area. It is not a cheap visit however once entry is paid for. There are also snacks and coffee available for purchase.

We enjoyed our rainy day visit to the playbarn - there was enough to keep our 2 year old occupied and our 5 month old enjoyed the baby/toddler area. Would suit older kids (up to 10 maybe?) too, with big slides and climbing walls. There was a little cafe area too...didn't visit this time, but useful to know for future... More

At £5 per child it is not a cheap visit but well worth it if the rain is too bad to do anything else. There is a small cafe at the soft play with snacks and drinks. Some board games and books as well as an outdoor play area are also available. Several pay per play games are also available... More
