Around the island


An inspiring place where the island’s past and present combine for an unforgettable getaway.  Watch the landscape dramatically change in only a matter of miles, and experience each village’s own colourful character shine through.

‘The one thing that brings me back to Arran is the feeling of being on an amazing mini-adventure! ‘ Nick Nairn


Not just Scotland’s second largest island but also Scotland in Miniature, or at least that’s how the saying goes, the Isle of Arran is a true gem in the country’s south-west coast; providing an accessible and rewarding break from the mainland. Step off the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry at Brodick and it is hard to believe that Glasgow isn’t even an hour’s drive away, as the blue waters lap the beach and the towering Goat Fell dominates the skyline to the north, giving a taster of just some of what this unique island has to offer. Whether you’re over for a day trip or plan on making a holiday of it, one of Arran’s best features is its compact size and relative ease of getting around. On foot you can’t go wrong, as the beaches line the shores right round the island, and the influential Highland Boundary Fault effectively divides the landscape into Highland glens and peaks to the north and Lowland flats and intriguing coastal caves to the south.  You can easily fill a day just following either one of the two main roads; the coastal route which leads up through Corrie and Sannox and onto Lochranza, or instead take the String road across the island to Shiskine and Blackwaterfoot.  Back on the east coast and only a few miles south of Brodick is the charming village of Lamlash, which sits overlooking Holy Isle and, just five miles south, is historic Whiting Bay. The island’s place in history becomes more evident as you follow the bay round, as prehistoric relics, a Viking burial mound at King Cross and even the Bronze Age ‘Giant’s Grave’ by Glenashdale Falls, all make for an adventurous and eye-opening island experience.
