arran is rich in history
With the three castles of Brodick, Lochranza and Kildonan, together with Arran Heritage Museum providing an insight into the Island's past.
Prehistoric sites are varied, with perhaps one of the most interesting being the Machrie Moor standing stones.
Thriving in Arran's natural environment are the Golden eagle and the ptarmigan along with many other bird species. Stags roam the corries and glens in the autumn months and dewy eyed seals bob along like corks in the island's bays and inlets.
There is also a rich variety for the botanist ranging from wild woodland plants to the magnificent gardens of Brodick Castle. The Isle of Arran is one of the world's classic geological locations with diverse and beautiful rock formations together with spectacular cliffs formed about 10,000 years ago running around much of the island.
