The Isle of Arran is about 20 miles long and 10 miles wide and sits in the Firth of Cylde. The 10 mile ferry crossing from Ardrossan takes 50 minutes - so we are less than 2 hours from Glasgow. For such a small island Arran contains a wide variety of sceneries and landscapes. To the North is the mountainous Goat Fell range - they may look benign from Brodick, but they are anything but. If you don't fancy the high level walks there are beautiful valley walks like Glen Rosa or more wooded walks in the South of the island like the Glenashdale Falls.
There are wonderful beaches all around the island - Blackwaterfoot in the West, Torrylinn in the South and Lochranza in the North.
Cycling is popular all around the island. Mountain bikers can make use of the forest tracks that criss-cross the island whilst road cyclists can enjoy the 60 mile circular route around the island's coast road.
Golf is another popular sport on the island. There are seven golf courses all around the island.
Sailing and kayaking are also popular with locals and visitors. Arran Adventure Company can arrange all sorts of events from gorge walking, kayaking and archery.
