Often described as being the best of Scotland in one island, the Isle of Arran was recently voted as Travellers’ Choice® 2013 Winner in the category of UK Islands.

The Isle of Arran is twenty miles long by ten miles wide and has only has three main roads, it’s geography contrasting mountainous terrain in the north, with more gentle, undulating hills towards the south of the island. Given the combination of terrain and stunning vista of Goat Fell it’s perhaps no surprise that the island is known to be a favourite of mountain bikers and walkers alike.

Tourists and visitors are well catered for with attractions including Arran Distillery, Brodick Castle, a choice of golf courses and the mysterious Machrie Moore Stone Circles. Add to that some beautiful villages, nice places to eat and local craft shops spread across a beautiful island steeped in history and culture.
