The Arran Coastal Way takes you around the island, starting at the ferry terminal in Brodick, walking mainly at sea level but with options to climb higher to enjoy the magnificent views over the island and out towards the mainland. It is quite well way marked with a yellow disc along roads and tidal beaches.
You have the opportunity to learn about the history, the whisky making and the wildlife both inland and coastal – you might catch a glimpse of a Golden Eagle or a basking shark! Arran is a favoured destination for geologists from around the world. This is a walk to be enjoyed with lots of extra gems to be explored.
There is also a 10 minute ferry crossing to Holy Isle if time allows, where Eriskay ponies and Saanen goats roam freely. The Isle is owned by a group of Tibetan Buddhists who live there. Please be aware of restrictions, such as no dogs allowed and keeping to the footpaths especially on the east side, which is closed to the public.
