A 56 mile round trip, the Isle of Arran offers stunning scenery at every turn. Much of the road hugs the coastline, giving easy access to the many beaches that are ideal for walking, beachcombing, and viewing the large array of marine birds and animals that share our island home. Lush rolling green fields with sheep and cattle in the south lead to forests and spectacular mountains in the north, home to birds of prey and magnificent red deer, which are frequently encountered.
Aside from the natural splendours of Arran, there are castles, prehistoric remains, and golf courses almost too numerous to mention. Cheese, ice cream, beer and whisky are all locally produced along with a variety of crafts.
The island is easily accessible by car ferry from Ardrossan (on the West Coast of Scotland) to Brodick, which brings you to the island in less than an hour. There is also a train service running directly from Glasgow Central to Ardrossan Harbour in under an hour.
We are 8 miles from Brodick. Buses and taxis await the ferry arrivals if coming without a car.
