Visit Kildonan and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Kildonan on the Isle of Arran, North Ayrshire. The village of Kildonan is on the Helmsdale river. Gold found in the Kildonan Burn led to a minor gold rush in 1868—9, but it was later found to be nearly all in dust; £6,000-worth was extracted, but the search for gold here was pronounced uneconomic.
On Learable Hill, about 1 mile up-river from Kildonan, are several rows of stones and cairns with no evident connection, also a standing stone on the summit of the hill with a cross carved on the West face.
In the l960s interest in panning for gold in the Kildonan burns was revived, and a number of amateurs spent their holidays seeking El Dorado.
Nearby villages: Blackwaterfoot, Brodick, Corrie, Lamlash, Lochranza, Machrie, Sliddery, Whiting Bay
