We are planning a (tent) camping trip to Arran next year and it would be really good to hear from others about the best time to visit from a weather / midge point of view. We are thinking of May as we have had good weather on Scotland at this time of the year on previous visits but as we are camping we are a bit concerned about midges, are they bad at that time of year? Would September be a better time to visit? I know it’s only a relatively small island but are there any advantages to being in the south of the island rather than the north or vice versa? We are currently looking at two campsites – one on Seal Shore on the coast at Kildonan in the South, the other at Lochranza in the north. Sorry for all the questions, we have had some very good advice in the past by using tripadvisor so thought we would start here! Thanks in advance.
