In June 2010 I finally made to the Isle of Arran for the first time and loved it! I can't wait to go back some time. I have lived in Ayrshire for most of my life and have said for MANY years "this is the year I'll go to Arran" without it ever happening. This time however it was my parents who had plans to go but when their original travel companions dropped out, I jumped at the chance to accompany them and finally get up and close to the island I have viewed from a distance for so many years
The island lies off the Ayrshire coast in the south west of Scotland and is reached by ferry from Ardrossan or the Mull of Kintyre. The island is just 19 miles long by 10 miles across and covers 165 square miles. Its often referred to as "Scotland in Miniature" as its mimics the geography of Scotland as a whole - stunning mountain ranges to the north, low lying in the centre and rising again to the south.
- Pros:really beautiful island
- Cons:midgies :/
- In a nutshell:scotland in miniature is a good description
