Generations of visitors to the Isle of Arran have affectionately, given the island the name, 'Scotland in miniature' no doubt because of the great variety of landscapes and terrain on the island. Arran is arguably the most beautiful island in Europe, with its granite peaks and sweeping moorland, wooded glens and long sandy beaches, tumbling waterfalls, big skies and wide open seascapes. A long history and temperate climate makes Arran a holiday destination you will want to return to, time and again. It is easy to get to the Island via the regular ferry service from Ardrossan to the island's main town, Brodick.
It is strongly recommended that you book the ferry as early as possible during the summer if you are bringing a car to the island, as they do tend to get busy during the summer months.
