Arran has been on my to do list for a while and finally an opportunity presented itself to visit this beautiful little island when my walking group organised a weekend trip. We stayed in Brodick, where the ferry lands, and also the biggest town/village.
Needless to say, despite being so little, the island offers a lot. Geology, history, walks, landscapes, views…
4 days spent there were not enough and I would definitely want to come back to discover more.
Day 1: Glenashdale falls from Whiting Bay, Eas Mor waterfall near Kildonan, walk around Brodick, all walks – around 8 miles.
Day 2: Lochranza to Laggan, then back over the hills – 10 miles.
Day 3: Brodick – Fairy Glen – Glen Cloy (6 miles)
Day 4: King’s Caves (3 miles), Machrie Farm (3 miles), Brodick country park (ca. 2 miles).
Came home knackered, went to work to rest 🙂
