Nicknamed "Miniature Scotland," Arran invites you to traverse its splendid landscape, offering an exquisite journey through its northern mountainous terrains.

As you venture across this enchanting isle, you'll encounter an array of ancient stone circles, remnants of the Neolithic era, intertwined with a rich tapestry of local culinary delights. The island itself is bisected by the Highland Boundary Fault, a geological division that distinguishes the rugged highlands from the gentler lowlands. The northern part of Arran boasts a dramatic mountainous expanse, mirroring Scotland's own highlands, while the southern region is characterized by undulating hills, reminiscent of the Scottish lowlands. The island's fauna is notably diverse and abundant. It is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, hosting herds of deer, along with colonies of seals and otters. The avian population is particularly impressive, featuring species such as pheasants, majestic golden eagles, and over a hundred other bird varieties. The flora is predominantly of moorland nature, with heather and gorse flourishing, epitomizing the region's natural beauty. This 8-day trip is an ideal introduction to the essence of Scotland, offering a 100% customizable tour tailored to your preferences. Embark on this journey to experience a microcosm of Scottish wonder, without a car !
