Picturing Scotland: The Isle of Arran

Content: Arran can be clearly seen from the Ayrshire and Argyll coasts, a tantalizing reminder of its existence, just begging to be explored – and, indeed, it is much visited. The ferry operator, Caledonian MacBrayne, takes more people to Arran annually than any other Scottish island that it serves. Its character is extremely diverse. On the wild side there are craggy mountains, Goatfell being the highest while Cir Mhor is the most challenging. Arran's top 10 peaks are all above 610m/2000ft. The island is blessed with lovely glens, waterfalls and rivers and a fine collection of villages. The port and main resort is Brodick, nicely framed by the backdrop of Goatfell and the surrounding mountains which provide a constantly changing scene according to the time of year, the weather conditions and the time of day.
