About the neighbourhood
INFORMATION ON ARRAN Golf, cycling, watersports, fishing, walking or just relaxing and taking in the beautiful scenery - Arran has it all ! OVERVIEW Inhabited since neolithic times, Arran is one of the most southerly Scottish islands and is located in the Firth of Clyde between Ayrshire and Kintyre. Arran is 19 miles long by 10 miles wide but has a remarkable diversity of landscapes and seascapes, thanks to the fact that the ancient Highland Fault Line literally crosses through the middle of the island. The pretty villages on the beautiful coastline of Arran are complemented by a rugged and mountainous interior in the north and green rolling hills and woodland in the south. Whether you are looking to get away from it all, have an action-packed break, visit friends and family ...
