Travel to Arran - in beautiful Scotland

by Steve Freear
(Isle of Arran, Scotland)

The Isle of Arran in the Southwest of Scotland is a magical place to visit. Known as 'Scotland in miniature', due to the diversity of its scenery in such a small area, it is a very popular place to visit.

So how can you travel to Arran?

Well surprisingly easily. Visitors from overseas can fly in to Glasgow or Prestwick airports and from there drive or get a train to the ferry terminal at Ardrossan.

Then it is a comfortable one hour ferry crossing on the CalMac ferry MV Caledonian Isles to Brodick. As you approach you will see Goatfell at 874 metres the highest mountain on the island and a must do climb for any outdoors enthusiast.

Once on the island life seems to be different. The pace of life is slower, the locals are friendly and everything just seems more relaxed.

Now you are here it's easy to drop into island life. Explore the quiet roads on a 58 mile lap of the island and look out for the wonderful wildlife. Stop off and take some memorable photos and then find a place to stop for a meal.

If the weather is behaving we recommend finishing the day at Lochranza and watch the sunset behind the 13th century castle and watch the red deer grazing on the golf course.

Magical, now you know why you made the effort to travel to Arran.
