Rugged in the extreme, Arran is an island of vast mountains, stunning views and glorious food. The stark remains of Brodick Castle are the main historic attraction for tourists but much fun can be found spending your days walking through the remarkable scenery and enjoying some traditional western isles folk music in a cosy Scottish pub. Popular with ramblers and nature photographers alike the stunning landscape and volume of wildlife is impressive and, if you can ignore the rain, it is a romantic and rustic place to spend a weekend in one of the most striking parts of Europe.
Lamlash is the main population centre of the island and as such is where the majority of accommodation is located but if you are seeking a sample of real Scottish village life then go to Blackwaterfoot, a small yet friendly little place. Many visitors come to Arran to climb the huge mountain named Goatfell which can be easily accessed from Brodick but requires some skill and fitness. With four courses and some remarkable views Arran is hugely popular with golfers who tend to favour those that are positioned near the outlying villages for the best scenery.
