Experiential tours

Whether it’s a restful island tour taking in the key sites and spectacular views of Arran, or an experiential tour specialising in a certain aspect of our island, tours are a welcome addition to your holiday. Because no matter how good the information we share with you on this website, or in our Island Guide magazine, it won’t beat actually hearing from the islanders that specialise in sharing their insights with you.

Take the stress off a little. Why not sit back and be entertained with your own guide on an island tour, gaining local knowledge about Arran life as you chillax and take it easy? This might be an island-wide tour in a car or Mogabout, sharing lots of information that only islanders know, or it could be an exciting boat cruise! All whilst you sit back, relax and enjoy our beautiful island.

We also have a Geotourist tour that has been developed with support from local residents for audio and imagery, and features some of Robert McLellan’s beautiful poem, Arran Burn. It’s on an app, and will take you on an anti-clockwise tour of some of Arran’s key spots and hidden gems.

Special interest tours might involve visiting distilleries, breweries, wildlife safaris, otter walks, farm visits, sea cruises (new for 2022), geology, guided hillwalks, Arran Arts Trail, Arran Arts Heritage Trail, mountain biking, or visiting Brodick Castle. These mini tours allow you to be absorbed into the experience for a wee while…whetting your appetite for more…until the next time!
