Self-catering accommodation in Arran

Scotland in Miniature. This short but highly appropriate description of Arran has become its catchphrase.

Justifiably so, for although small in size, its wonderful scenery combined with the great array of things to see and do enable you to sample the best of Scotland in one distinct area.

And with the island only a 55 minute ferry ride from the mainland, it’s all so easily accessible.

More about The Isle of Arran

Roughly rectangular and extending 20 miles long by 10 wide, the best way to explore Arran it is by car or bicycle. A coast road links the islands settlements, including Brodick, Lamlash, Whiting Bay, Kildonan, Blackwaterfoot, Lochranza and Corrie, while another minor road, known as ‘The String’ crosses the middle of the island.

As you go, you can enjoy wonderful vistas from viewpoints overlooking the mountains and coast. Visit an array of prehistoric monuments. Explore caves associated with Robert the Bruce. Tour historic castles like Lochranza and Brodick. Encounter the abundant wildlife, like seals, red deer, red squirrels and golden eagles. And enjoy Arran’s famous seafood, cheeses, ice cream, whisky and beer in some fine restaurants, bistros, cafes and pubs.

For the more active there is a wide range of walks, including some spectacular hill walks on and around Goat Fell, golf, cycling, horse riding, sailing, sea kayaking and canyoning. Not to mention the many events and festivals.

Scotland? Certainly. Miniature? Perhaps less so.
