Isle of Arran
Tour & Walk Scotland in small group Adventures
4-days / 3 nights
It was late in life that I discovered Arran. Wrongly thinking somewhere within easy proximity of Glasgow would have little of the wild to offer, I had sought out the more far flung outer isles of the Hebrides in seeking adventure. How wrong I was though about the Isle of Arran. This island has everything, with lots of very attractive villages, good cafes and inns and of a size to make 4 days there seem too short.
This ‘Tour & Trek’ will include the following:
A walk over Machrie Moor and consider the stone circles and the coming of the Celtic Christians.
A tour of the southern part of the island with a hike along the coast to visit the King’s cave.
A hike up one of Arran’s fine peaks.
Walk in the woodlands and along the streams of Brodick castle.
A tour of the northern half of the island, and a coastal hike out from Lochranza.
Walk up to view the finest waterfalls on Arran at Glenashdale above Whiting Bay and on to visit the Giant’s graves.
There are other options to see and do, which can be planned in. Such as:
We will sample local foods at different inns and restaurants in the evenings.
Basic Rates: £655pp when sharing a double room in the B&B, subject to availability, including all transport and guiding and the ferry trips. Single room occupancy is £780
