Nestled in the Firth of Clyde on the west coast of Scotland, Arran is often referred to as "Scotland in Miniature" due to its diverse natural features. Upon arriving at the island, the salty breeze and breathtaking vistas will instantly welcome you. We'll settle into a well-established campsite for a restful night before taking on Arran's tallest peak the following morning.
Day 2: We'll embark on a challenging hike into Glen Rosa, a deep valley surrounded by towering peaks. Traverse through enchanting forests, babbling streams, and picturesque glens before ascending Goat Fell (874m), the island's highest peak. The summit rewards you with a panoramic view of Arran and its neighbouring isles.
Day 3: On the final day, bid farewell to the Isle of Arran, cherishing the memories of the walking adventure amidst its captivating landscapes. Depart with a heart full of experiences and a deep appreciation for the natural beauty that Scotland's "Miniature" Isle has to offer.
