Things to do in Arran from your holiday cottage in Scotland

Soak up sea views and stunning countryside...
Nature lovers will be in paradise on Arran, with its towering mountains, verdant forests and wildlife-rich habitats. With its dramatic coastline, you are in the perfect place to spot basking sharks, seals, otters, golden eagles, or even deer and red squirrels. The whole island, at 20 miles long and 10 miles wide, is a haven for walking, with lonely glens, sweeping moorland and majestic mountains. Walkers will love the Arran Coastal Way. The 65-mile route, mainly off-road with a defined path, is packed full of fabulous scenery and amazing wildlife and is recognised as one of Scotland's Great Trails. It can easily be done in sections, with many side trips and attractions on the way, such as King's Cave near Blackwaterfoot Beach, located on a dramatic section of coastline. Stay in one of our Arran holiday cottages and you'll be just a stone's throw away from these incredible landscapes.

Discover the island's history and heritage...
Immerse yourself in Arran's rich history and heritage by visiting the ancient standing stones, stone circles and historic sites that whisper tales of the island's past. Don't miss a day out at the architectural gem of Brodick Castle, complete with formal gardens, woodlands and waterfalls set against a stunning backdrop of the towering peak of Goat Fell. This is the quintessential island castle, and Britain's only island country park extending from seashore to mountaintop. One of the most popular walking trails around the country park takes you to the picturesque valley of Glen Rosa. The castle dates back centuries and was fashioned to its current grandeur in 1844; full of treasures, period furniture, silverware, porcelain and sporting trophies. Another historic fortress you can visit is Lochranza Castle, located on the northern part of the island. With a history that dates back to the 13th century, this medieval tower house stands as picturesque ruins amidst the island's stunning natural beauty. Our holiday homes make the perfect hideaways for a captivating break surrounded by rich island history

Indulge in local culinary delights...
The Isle of Arran in Ayrshire is a foodie's dream. Indulge in Arran's famous local produce, including world-class whisky, artisanal cheeses, and mouthwatering seafood. Wash it all down with a pint of locally distilled beer. If beer is not your tipple, then head off to the Arran Distillery to discover the process behind producing malt whiskey, or the liqueur, Arran Gold. If you want to explore Scotland's culinary delights further, hop on a ferry from the ferry terminal in Brodick which takes you to Ardrossan on the mainland, where you'll find even more fresh seafood and local whisky to sample! Our Arran holiday cottages are the perfect base to soak up the local culture and savour the flavour of this tasty part of Scotland!
