Arran sits supreme in the Firth of Clyde washed by the warm Gulf Stream. A geologist’s paradise, its shores entice visitors to make the ferry crossing. Attractions include castles, a museum, a food trail including a brewery and a distillery, good beaches, sailing, challenging walks, and simply getting away.

A holiday in Scotland in January? As it turns out, we had a great time, just saw enough to know we'll be back.

Arran, being my home, is pretty special to me. It's the kind of place people come back to time and time again, no matter where they are from. It has so much to recommend itself, it's hard to know where to begin!

Only 3 nights for a self-planned minibreak.
Easy to reach; adequate buses; good coast; some marvellous mountains - not Munroes thank heaven. Goat Fell was said to be overpopular and eroded so I chose a ridge walk.

Hidden off the West Coast I headed there for a quick visit and was amazed to find a complete jem of a place- not quite sure why its nicknamed Scotland in miniature but there was no shortage of things to see and do.

Our 3rd visit to the Isle of Arran, Scotland. Great place for hikers, lovers of Celtic history (standing stones, etc.), castle lore, and island culture. The island is 10 miles by 20 miles, demarcated down the middle by a volcanic fault line.Mountains, 7 golf courses, hiking trails, superb accomodations.
