The Isle of Arran
Arran has possibly the most varied landscape of any of the Scottish isles and is commonly referred to as Scotland in Miniature. The geology of the island is of interest and gives rise to the dramatic change in scenery between the north and south of the island. Geology enthusiast may enjoy the coastal walk to see Hutton's 'unconformity'. The Highland Boundary fault which, as its name suggest separates the Highlands from the lowlands of Scotland runs through Arran giving rise to rugged mountains with jagged ice shattered edges and beautiful corries formed in the Ice Age in the north and the softer rolling hills in the south.The variety in the landscape which offers gentle valleys, rugged coastline, sandy beaches, waterfalls and green valleys is reflected in the variety of wildlife and plants to be found on Arran.
Driving around the the Isle of Arran is easy as there are only three main roads – and the Shore Road is circular so just keep going and you can't get lost! Two roads cut across the island in an east-west direction- The String Road (B880) and The Ross Road which cuts across the southern part of the island is a single lane road with passing places and has recently been upgraded. Please take care driving on our roads and watch out for cyclists and walkers.
