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 ...
How to get there
The easiest option is to drive to Ardrossan and take your car on the ferry to Brodick which is only 2km from Quivive. The ferry is a very good deal now that the Scottish government has subsidised RET (road equivalent tariffs) to slash prices. If you fly to Glasgow airport, we would recommend hiring a car for the short 40km drive to Ardrossan, keeping the car for the duration of your stay on Arran. Alternatively you can catch a train from Glasgow Central to Ardrossan Harbour to get straight onto the ferry as a foot passenger. You could then manage on Arran without a car, as there is a good bus service, but we would recommend hiring a car in Brodick.
