Leisure proposals

When Iain Johnstone said, on becoming the new tourist officer in 1983, that Arran needed a wet weather facility, he faced ridicule. But by 1990 Mr Johnstone was building his own at the Auchrannie Hotel which has proved to be a tremendous success.

Now Mr Johnstone is embarking on a much greater project, a leisure centre. Plans show a development that could cost £6 million and will include four outdoor and three indoor tennis courts, a 25-metre swimming pool and a large foyer. The hotel will gain another 30 bedrooms and there would be a lake and a pitch-and-putt course in the landscaped gardens.
