LODGE

Enjoy some privacy in the quaint new addition to The Douglas Hotel. Banner Lodge is pretty special.

Banner Lodge is the former home to the local newspaper, The Arran Banner. Arran’s weekly paper was established in 1974 and was under the ownership and editorship of John Millar, who worked and printed the newspaper from the lodge.

The paper still attracts subscribers from around the world for its often unique and witty writing style. It is also famous for a very high readership among the local population, in 1984 it received a Guinness World Record recognising this fact. The entry reads: "The Arran Banner, founded in 1974, has a readership of more than 97 per cent in Britain’s seventh largest off-shore island".
