Wildlife - Scotland’s Big 5 all on Arran!
- posted 18th June 2017

Arran has all of Scotland’s Big 5 – the favourite wildlife in Scotland which include red squirrels, otters, golden eagles, red deer and harbour seals. You can see all these relatively easily on Arran:
Red squirrels are all over the island in the woodlands and can be seen at Brodick Castle where there is a webcam with a screen in the café.
Otters are shy but often seen on the southern beaches, especially at Kildonan.
Golden Eagles nest in the north and can be seen from the Distillery.
Red Deer are in all the woods in the south, on the mountains in the north and commonly on the golf course in Lochranza.
Seals are all around the coast, often sunbathing on the rocks! Blackwaterfoot and Kildonan are good spots to see them.

Lagg Wood
- posted 30th May 2017

There is something magical about a beautiful wood and Lagg Wood will not disappoint. Filled with wild garlic, bluebells and bright new green leaves, it is most stunning in May. From our glamping site, you can get to the wood from the Village Hall direction or after enjoying a stroll along the beach, do a loop and head up passed the cairn along the tree lined track to meander along the pathways through the wood. And at the end, there is the Velo café at the Lagg Hotel or the café in the Village Hall if you are feeling peckish!

Springtime Wild Flowers
- posted 27th April 2017

Arran is especially beautiful in Spring when the hedgerows, fields and woodlands are filled with wildflowers. The bluebells are stunning in the woods at this time of year, with some on site (shown above) and a huge display in Lagg Wood which is less than 10 minutes walk away. You will also find wild garlic scenting the air - with its aromatic leaves and white flowers - along with red campion and yellow primroses decorating the hedgerows. All a lovely excuse for a stroll.
