It is not called ‘Scotland in Miniature’ for nothing!
The Isle of Arran, a wildlife haven, lies in the Firth of Clyde, nestled between the Ayrshire Coast in the west and the Kintyre Peninsula to the east.
The highland faultline divides the island in two very different sections- the rocky and mountainous north and the lush green pastures and forests of the south – just like the Scottish mainland. The wide diversity of habitat across the island results in a rich bird list of over 250 species and a great variety of wildlife.
You may not consider yourself a wildlife enthusiast but when you are on Arran it is really difficult not to find yourself gazing at red deer or wondering, what is that noisy black and white, orange beaked bird on the shore?
With its 56 miles of coastline, there’s so much to see and do on Arran. Whether it’s our golf courses, castles, museum, distillery or maybe our abundance of local produce. Or even some walking, cycling or swimming, there’s plenty to please everyone.
So, with challenging mountain climbs and wonderful walks, dramatic seascapes, landscapes and plenty of outdoor pursuits, we are indeed a paradise overseas!!
