Auchrannie's life began back in 1869 and it has had a variety of roles since then, being a family home, a naval officers club and a guesthouse. In 1988 it was purchased by Linda and Ian Johnston to be able to offer an indoor swimming pool to the community of the island for sustainable tourism and to be able to teach the children of the island to swim. Auchrannie as it is today, has just been a project that has kept on growing, developing, getting better, moving with the times and challenging the norm of hospitality as we know it. The resort has always been family run but over the years the family has increased to 170 strong and as an employee owned resort, they feel that more than anything. Auchrannie is a great place to work due to the upfront and honest communication that they have, the fun they have in their teams and the way in which they are all challenged to achieve their very best every day.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

I feel proud to work for this organisation

Their EAP is operated by Hospitality Action and supplies their teams with free of charge, 24/7 assistance should they require it. This could be for financial assistance, grief counselling, depression and anxiety, addiction of any kind or just to talk to someone. This provides the opportunity to chat online Monday to Friday, tons of information and fact sheets on a wellness portal loaded with relevant information, free 24/7/365 phone line available to speak to a qualified clinician - this can also be escalated to 5-6 free face to face counselling sessions if required. Management referrals - to assist someone in making that first phone call and management advice line for dealing with difficult situations.

My Manager

83% of staff agreed

My manager cares about me as an individual

They are an employee owned business which means their team members are eligible for a tax free financial reward after 1 years service. Their profits from the business continue to be reinvested but by being employee owned all team members have the opportunity to directly impact the "bottom line"

They are also an accredited Real Living Wage employer, meaning that all of their team members aged 18 years old or over are paid to the appropriate level, moving them away from the long hours, rubbish pay scenario of previous hospitality reputations.

My Team

83% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

They have 4 values within in their team and Community is one of them. As the largest employer on the Isle of Arran they have a large social responsibility to the community and their team are actively encouraged to be part of this. They have taken part in local beach cleans as well as promoting local events such as the Highland Games, Fireworks and Bonfire nights, Arran Show and much more.


Isle of Arran Food Bank has received a large amount of produce from their team during a food bank drive in early 2018 by the entire team

Arran Trust - all guests that stay on the resort are asked to donate £1 on check out and over the last year this has been over £30,000.
