Self Catering on Arran

Rich in history and steeped in legend, the rugged coastline and majestic mountains of the Island of Arran have earned it the nickname of "Scotland in Miniature."  A self-catering holiday on Arran certainly offers a little bit of everything and a lot to see and do.

Visit the 'Highland' estate of Brodick Castle and explore its gardens, grounds and the house itself or take to the beach at Kildonan, Blackwaterfoot, Whiting Bay or many more. When it comes to walks you'll be spoilt for choice with everything from leisurely strolls to serious hikes on offer. If you do want to see everything then a ramble and scramble up Goatfell -Arran's highest peak - might be the way to do it as there are spectacular views across the island and further afield to be enjoyed from the top. 

With a great selection of holiday cottages situated throughout the Island, here is a list of beautiful areas and villages that you might want to consider: Brodick, Lamlash, Whiting Bay, Kildonan, Blackwaterfoot, Corrie and Lochranza to mention a few.

If you prefer life on the flat then head for one or more of the island's seven golf courses. If you can't decide between nine and eighteen holes then the twelve hole Shiskine Golf Club could offer a compromise!

There is plenty made on Arran to try including soaps, scents and candles from the well-established Arran Aromatics. Cheese, oatcakes and chocolate are also among the local produce while you'll find that Arran has its own distillery and a microbrewery too.

Held in the embrace of Ayrshire and Kintyre, Arran is all the extra excitement of a short ferry trip away from the mainland. Thanks to the introduction of a new pricing system, your ferry ticket now costs no more than an equivalent journey by road would.

With all of this and much, much more all perfectly packaged in island form why not come and see for yourself why Arran has proved a perennially popular holiday destination for generations.
