The Isle of Arran is situated in the Gulf Stream and is also known as ‘Scotland in Miniature’ having both highlands and lowlands, wide sandy beaches. The gulf-stream influence is shown in the palm trees and lilies and abundant vegetation that can be found growing naturally on the Isle of Arran.

It takes less than an hour to cross the water to this enchanted island. As Arran is only 20 miles long it is easy to travel around the 56 mile coast road in half a day, although it is supposed to take more time and to enjoy stops here and there. 

Arran has wonderful natural sights: Wild life abounds on the island with a chance to spot red squirrels, golden eagles and red deer. If you sit quietly on the beaches you can often see seals, dolphins and otters and sometimes a basking shark. Arran is rich in history with several castles, Neolithic standing stones and world famous geological formations. Sights to visit include Brodick Castle, the Heritage Museum, ruined castles and even a distillery. There are a host of activities to suit everyone from walking, cycling, bird-watching, fishing, and pony-trekking to kayaking, paragliding and yoga courses held at the house. 
7 golf courses to suit all levels set amongst breathtaking scenery, all with excellent playing conditions; one for every day of the week!

Culinary delicacy and visitor attractions from a distillery, the brewery, smoked seafood, island cheeses; all made using Arran Cows milk, a chocolate factory and Arran Aromatiques.

There is something for everyone, from those who are more active and those who want just relaxing and soaking up the scenery; the list is endless.
