  • Overview

    Located close to Scotland's Ayrshire coast and Glasgow, Arran's picturesque villages dot the coastline against a backdrop of rugged mountains, green rolling hills and woodlands. Arran attracts both travellers looking for a break from the bustle of big city life and those wanting an adventurous holiday embracing the region's natural splendour. Although many tourists come here to visit the world-famous Arran Distillery to sample the single malt whisky, they will be surprised at the amount of other activities Arran has to offer. There really is quite literally something for everyone on the Isle of Arran.

    Arran is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde and, like many of its neighbouring islands, there is prehistoric evidence of continuous habitation since the early Neolithic period. Archaeological sites such as Ossian's Mound, near Clachaig, and a cairn near Blackwaterfoot, have yielded ancient treasures providing a tantalising glimpse into the rich history of this region. The six stone circles at Machrie Moor date back as far as the Neolithic period. Other popular attractions include Brodick Castle, which was previously a seat of the Dukes of Hamilton, and the 14th-century Lochranza Castle, which was once used as a hunting lodge for Scottish kings.

    The lure of the great outdoors is central to Arran's appeal, where walking, quad biking, cycling, golfing and trout fishing opportunities are plentiful. With everything from salmon and venison to chocolate and beer, the Isle of Arran also attracts 'foodies' and is earning an international name for itself, partly due to its high quality local produce.
