This beautiful Scottish island is one of the most southerly Scottish, located in the Firth of Clyde between Ayrshire and Kintyre. Despite it being just 19 miles long and 10 miles wide, there is a wealth of things to see and do here. Picturesque villages dot the coastline and the rugged coastline and lush green hills are simply stunning.
Cuddle up with your other half in a traditional stone cottage by the sea or watch the sunset from the terrace of a modern self-catering apartment. Whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find your Scottish idyll in the Isle of Arran.
Often called "Scotland in Miniature", the Isle of Arran’s landscape is diverse and encapsulates the beauty of Scotland. In the north you’ll find rugged granite peaks while the south has rolling hills, moors and farmland. The Arran Coastal Way has walks to suit all abilities and the sandy coves en route are a delight.
The wildlife here is as impressive as the scenery with rare species such as otters, golden eagles, red squirrels, red deer and oystercatchers. One of the best ways to see the wildlife in Arran is on a nature safari - your guide will take you to the prime spots to catch a glimpse of these amazing creatures.
From sea kayaking to paragliding, the Isle of Arran is the perfect place to unleash your adventurous side. Have a go at sailing, climbing or archery and you might find you have a hidden talent! If horse riding makes you go weak at the knees (in a good way) then saddle up on a pony trekking excursion or a horse riding class. And for a fun-filled day out the whole family will love, visit the Balmichael Centre with its ice skating rink, pedal karts and golf range.
