Addictive Arran

Hiking on Arran – the Addictive Arran itinerary

There are plenty of hiking opportunities on the Isle of Arran despite it’s relatively small size. Arran is often known as Scotland in miniature – the isle of Arran, chosen as Trivago’s top European island in 2016 – there is certainly plenty to explore. We’ll be visiting the famous peaks including Goat Fell, Arran’s highest point but we’ll also be able to sample the island’s home made ice cream, stop in at the distillery (if you’re interested), sample the local brews and sniff the locally made soaps etc, which are a speciality of Arran Aromatic. The wildlife watching opportunities are also amazing while we’re out on the hills. We’ll certainly be heading home with plenty of stunning photos to share

Our walking on Arran itinerary has a little of everything to please everyone. We cover all the interesting hills including the highest peak: Goat Fell.

For this trip we are based from a cottage on the island itself. The whole team ventures over to Arran and runs the trip as if it were our home for the week.
