Sunday 5th - Saturday 11th July 2020
Scotland’s most southern holiday Isle, with beautiful scenery, unique culture and long history of spiritual importance. It is an appealing contrast of mountains and lochs to the north and rolling green hills and meadows to the south – all surrounded by a stunning coastline.
Crossing to Brodick from Ardrossan, the Isle of Arran boasts an impressive, rugged silhouette. Just 20 miles long and 56 miles around its coastline, it is often described as 'Scotland in Miniature'. Enjoy the enchantment of one of Scotland's loveliest islands, with its craggy mountains in the North to the rolling moors and unspoilt beaches in the South. A local guide will join us for a day to bring to life this fascinating island and we visit the stunning Brodick Castle.
