Beautiful Arran, a miniature Scotland
Day 1 - Welcome to Arran
Collect your rental vehicle and transfer to the island via ferry. Settle into your accommodation and the rest of the evening is free. Short walk in Brodick Bay depending on when you arrive. You’re on an island of peace and quiet, where you can relax totally…
Day 2 - Tour of the island
There is no better way to soak up the atmosphere than to take a grand tour of the island, stopping at various points of interest. Visits to the Machrie stone circles, Brodick Castle, Arran aromatics and samplings of the island’s specialities (fish and seafood, Arran cheese, oatcakes, chutney, whisky, not forgetting the famous “Arran” beer that is brewed on the island).
Day 3 - Goatfell
Hike to Goatfell (5-6h elevation gain: 874m) highest point on the island with a panoramic view of the island. Departure from Corrie and arrival at the Arran brewery to quench your thirst… The view from the top is absolutely sensational. You can see lots of mountains in the west of Scotland, and the islands of Islay and Jura as well as Ireland. Return to Glasgow in the late afternoon and a free evening.
Day 4 - Return flight
