Arran Coastal Way - 9 Days & 8 Nights

  • Immerse yourself in island life on Arran - 'Scotland in miniature'
  • Spot basking seals and perhaps glimpse a majestic golden eagle
  • Leave crowded trails behind and experience a more remote, wild Scotland
  • Stop off at Lochranza Distillery - why not take a tour and have a wee dram?
  • Enjoy panoramic views on the high route option from the summit of Goat Fell, Arran's highest mountain
The Arran Coastal Way encircles one of Scotland’s most famous islands often described as Scotland in miniature. A wonderfully varied walk where you can walk along beautiful beaches, choose to come inland briefly to climb Goat Fell for spectacular views to the mainland and visit the King's Cave. A scenic 1 hour ferry crossing from Ardrossan on the mainland brings you to Brodick, the hub of the island, and where you will overnight before beginning the Way. Leave the hustle and bustle of Brodick behind and journey north, perhaps electing to take the high route over Goat Fell (874 m) if the weather is good, pass through the charming village of Sannox, and onto Lochranza where the castle ruins and Arran's only distillery await. The views looking north up Loch Fyne towards the highlands are fantastic. From Lochranza, the northern tip of the island, the Way curves south hugging the west coast of the island to reach Blackwaterfoot and Lagg - a wonderful stretch of the Way with views across to the lush Kintyre peninsula. The southern tip of Arran is gently rolling and walking close to the shoreline is rewarding, but can be challenging if you choose to take the low route options which cross the tidal boulder fields between Lagg and Whiting Bay. Finally, swing north via Whiting Bay and return to Brodick for your last night. An unforgettable experience on one of Scotland’s best islands.
