The Isle of Arran is about 20 miles long and 10 miles wide, only 2 hours from Glasgow and it packs a lot in!
Come and enjoy:

  • Beaches with miles of sand, rock pools and glorious views
  • Walks to suit everyone, from stunning mountain hikes, to glens, woods and waterfalls
  • Kayaking and paddle boarding around the beautiful bays and beaches
  • Farm tours, alpaca walks and horse riding
  • Cycling – both road cycling and mountain biking on our forestry tracks
  • Golf – with many great courses and a mini golf for the easier option in Brodick!
You can also choose guided activities and equipment hire if you do not want to bring your own.

Heritage and Culture

Arran has a long, fascinating history.

  • Geological treasures like Hutton’s Unconformity and dinosaur footprints (yes really!)
  • Neolithic wonders like the Machrie Moor Standing Stones and roundhouses
  • The National Trust for Scotland’s stunning Brodick Castle, with amazing historic collection in the castle, kids play park and beautiful gardens.
You can also visit the Arran Geopark sites, Arran Heritage Centre in Brodick and many other historical attractions all around the island.
The Waverley Paddle Steamer visits Arran in the summer. As the last ocean going paddle steamer it is great to spot and a real treat to travel on.

And time to relax...

Food is a BIG thing on Arran, with lots of prize winning local producers – from cheeses to chocolate - and loads of great cafes and restaurants all around the island. Eat in or eat out - whatever your preference, you will be able to find somewhere to deliver great food.
For something stronger, there’s local whisky, gin and beer. We have two award wining whisky distilleries, one just down the road from us in Lagg and the other in Lochranza. With excellent tours, cafes and shops they are both a great day out. Arran also has a Brewery in Brodick with tours and with its own and other microbrewery beer sold around the island. Arran Gin is very popular and has a fabulous beach bar in Brodick!
Shopping choices are many around the island, with art galleries, craft shops, luxury goods, and destinations like the Old Byre Centre, combining shopping, food and a great kids play area. Everyone happy!
Or chill out and pamper yourself with Arran Aromatics’ lovely toiletries or book a massage or other treatment at the luxurious Auchrannie Spa.
Arran has something for everyone.
