Arran in Spring

Spring has Sprung

Visit Arran in Springtime as the fresh April showers wash away the winter snow and the lush greens start to appear. It’s like the island is reborn and the whole island buzzes with activity in preparation for the summer. Spring is also peak breeding season for wildlife and for farmlife too, so do be aware and keep your distance – and remember to always keep your dog on a lead.

Easter of course is the time to see lambs gambolling and newly hatched chicks finding their way in farmyards. In May you can take part the Arran Mountain Festival, and if you fancy it, the Goatfell Hill race also takes place.

Spring is like the Arran Sense of Scotland signature scent – because it is like ‘after the rain’!
