ArranOnline has been relaunched as the go-to website and companion App for information about where to stay, eat and shop on the Isle of Arran, along with information about all the best things to see and do during your visit.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and during lockdown in 2020, Peroosh Ltd took the decision to build a website and companion app for the Isle of Arran. The new website and App was built and populated with local businesses, including places to stay, eat and drink, things to see and do — even showing the location of all the island’s bus stops and post boxes!
Island residents can access local trades, while visitors can book their accommodation directly with local hotels and B&Bs, saving those businesses OTA commission. To fill empty rooms, accommodation providers can advertise late availability daily. ArranOnline.com comes with a free companion App, available to download from the Apple and Google App stores, that anyone can use to access local information, including both walking and driving routes to any selected point of interest. The App and website share the same login details, meaning you can easily set bookmarks on one device and access them on another.
Through the website, local businesses can add and amend their own listings, under as many categories as they wish, providing links to their own websites and social media platforms and publishing their opening hours, prices and so on. An alert can reach all users if, for example, a road is closed or some other incident arises.
And all this is entirely free of charge to Arran businesses and visitors alike, thanks to the generosity of Peroosh, the innovative web platform that already hosts several island websites, such as the Arran Ferry Action Group, Heather Lodge and several accommodation providers. Peroosh business partners Graeme Attkins and Colin Abercrombie have devoted much of their time throughout lockdown to developing this new platform for the island.
We’re using Arran as a pilot project, with a view to offering similar sites to other communities around the world in the near future.
Building on a combined 40 years experience in website design and build, for companies of all sizes, including banks and supermarkets, Peroosh has been designed to scale to meet the online needs of any client.
Our business model has been refined to suit clients with smaller budgets, by allowing them to maintain a high-impact online presence for a low monthly cost.
