Those boots were made for walking

There are a terrific range of walks available on the island, from gentle coastal strolls to demanding mountain epics. Easy forest trails, ridge scrambles, great glens and a long distance route on the Arran Coastal Way mean you will not be disappointed.

Many of the wide network of trails also take in the island’s rich history and wonderful wildlife. The spectacular King’s Cave provides the focus for a pleasant hike and was reputedly the place where Robert the Bruce is said to have been inspired by the spider to try, try, try again.
One of four Corbetts on the island and the highest mountain in the south of Scotland, an ascent of Goatfell is a more challenging option. Please ensure that you have correct equipment and maps before starting any walk and respect wildlife, flora and local landowners. Starting at the Goatfell sign in Corrie by the Corrieburn Bridge, follow the steep, narrow tarmac road up past High Corrie to bare right onto a woodland path. The significant height gained affords stunning views across the Clyde to Cumbrae, Great Cumbrae and Bute and the walk in towards north Goatfell provides an opportunity to spot the local red deer. The final ascent on to the ridge is quite steep but benefits from a clear and well defined path. Once on the ridge, the northern hills below are laid out in magnificent detail and special care should be taken on wet and windy days. Once on the ridge, turn left towards the actual summit of Goatfell. Several paths exist across the gritty Stacach ridge, the most eastern of which bypass the granite torrs which require a head for heights and some scrambling. The ridge leads up onto the summit of Goatfell. From the trig point on the summit, a well defined path heads east along the main ridge, then south towards Brodick with Holy Isle and Brodick taking centre stage. The initial decline is steep and rocky, but once the shoulder of Meall Breac is reached, the path broadens to provide a gradual descent into Brodick.
