Top Must Dos

It's all here for you

Arran is the perfect Scottish island to visit all year round. There's places to see and plenty to do, for all the family, in all seasons.

In Summer

Walking - Climb Goatfell

This is the island’s highest (and possibly easiest) peak. Go up the path from Cladach, and reward yourself with an Arran ice Cream once you’re back down. If you’re fit you can probably do this up and down in under 4 hrs. Find out more >

Heritage - Brodick Castle

The castle offers a great insight into the Hamilton dynasty that used to own all of Arran. Arran Heritage Museum offers the social history of Arran and her people. Both compliment each other and are highly recommended.
