Latest reviews | Events in Isle Of Arran | 10 Places to Stay

The Isle of Arran is in the Firth of Clyde, 14 miles from the North Ayrshire coast and 4 miles west of the Kintyre peninsula. Arran is 20 miles long and 10 miles wide. From Gaelic Arran means ‘peaked island’ with the mountains standing to the north-side, the highest peak being Goat Fell at 874m tall. Arran was not part of Scotland until the Treaty of Perth, 1266 and was granted a Royal charter in 1503. Arran is known as ‘Scotland in Miniature,’ routed in Celtic myths and legends with the best that Scotland has to offer including a selection of golf courses, castles, Heritage Museum, distilleries, outdoor activities, scenery and gourmet food. Neolithic farmers settled on Arran in prehistoric times, leaving their traces in the Cairns. Across the island there are ritual Bronze Age standing stones. Vikings inscriptions found in the cave of St. Molaise and Drumadoon has an Iron Age fort. The main industry on Arran is tourism, the ferry from mainland Ardrossan docks at Brodick harbour with sandy beaches. Arran has hotels, guest houses, restaurants and a selection of shops. Activities include fishing, hill-walking, climbing, golfing and sight-seeing. Whiting Bay has a crafts centre and Lamish Bay has a water-sports centre.
