After a wonderful week on Arran last year we returned with friends in tow. We spent the week hiking, eating, drinking and relaxing. In return we had perfect weather and a brilliant time!
The thing we loved about Arran last time was that it’s like a mini-Scotland. It has all the different types of scenery from sandy beaches to cliffs to rolling hills, forests and rugged mountain ranges. It’s a peaceful place that’s not spoiled with lots of people (unlike the Lake District) and has a climate warm enough to support palm trees (believe it or not). Our good friends are avid hikers too and we knew they’d love Arran as much as we do.
Anyway, here are some of the many pictures I took over the week, they’re in chronological order so click on the first one and read the descriptions to find out what we got up to. Note that when you’re on a photo page, clicking the picture moves you to the next one so you don’t need to keep going back and forth!
I honestly wish I had the eye for beauty you have. Your photos, even the more mundane ones, are outstanding. You have caught a bit of the beauty and possibly even the serenity of The Isle Of Arran. Thank you for sharing them with us.
That’s very kind of you and trying to get across how peaceful a place Arran is was what I wanted to do. With lovely scenery like that it’s easy!
