Isle of Arran

Though not strictly one of the Hebrides, Arran is very similar, yet more accessible.  Located some 15 miles off the Ayrshire coast, between the mainland and the Kintyre Peninsula, it is only two hours from Glasgow, yet remarkably remote.  

Arran is sometimes referred to as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, alluding to the contrasting landscapes of the island; mountainous and rugged in the north yet green rolling farmland in the south.

Although home all year round to some 4,500 people and many more visitors in the summer months, the crowd disembarking the weekend ferries seems to melt away into the hills.  Once leaving Brodick, the island takes on a peaceful, almost timeless pace which is part of its magic.
