Arran is known as 'Scotland in Miniature' for good reason. Dramatically diverse landscapes make Arran an ideal destination for both adventurous and relaxing breaks.
LANDSCAPEFrom hills and glens to waterfalls and beaches the beauty of Arran’s landscape speaks for itself.
WILDLIFEWe are spoilt on Arran with the wildlife that is on our doorstep. If you are lucky you might see red squirrels, deer, seals, otters, basking sharks and golden eagles – however some are more elusive than others!
PRODUCEHere on Arran we are proud of our award winning local produce.
The produce is as diverse as the landscape and includes whisky, beer, cheese, jams & chutneys, chocolate, ice cream, haggis, black pudding, bread and oatcakes. It’s not all food and drink… soaps & toiletries, jewellery, pottery as well as paintings and sculptures are all produced on the island.
During your visit to Arran you’ll be able to enjoy the local produce and hopefully take some home with you.
ACTIVITIESArran is a great destination for the outdoor enthusiast. You can get out and explore the hills, cycle the island, dive into the sea or play one of our seven golf courses. There are a number of local events and adventure companies to help you try something new.
For a more peaceful adventure, there are some great beaches to relax on, shopping to be done or you could enjoy a tour and a wee dram at the distillery in Lochranza. If you prefer a bit of history, you could visit Brodick Castle, Machrie Standing Stones and the Heritage Museum.
There is also plenty of art to be enjoyed across the island.
