The Isle of Arran is nicknamed ‘Scotland in miniature’.

It’s called this because it contains everything everyone loves about Scotland in 452 square kilometres.

You find stags frolicking through forests, a castle dramatically perched on the side of a river, and all the delicious seafood and whisky you could want.

So join this tour and begin with an adventure through the land of Robert Burns, before discovering all the delights of this small but bountiful island.

Itinerary

Day 1Edinburgh - Brodick

You travel west past Glasgow and the Whitelee Wind Farm, Europe’s largest wind farm.

You then leave the modern landscapes, and travel into Ayrshire to visit the 18th-century Culzean Castle. Here you have time to enjoy its dramatic clifftop setting, beautiful architecture, and elegant living spaces. You can also have lunch in the cafe or a picnic in the beautiful castle grounds.

Travelling towards Robert Burns’ birthplace you discover the places from his poems and songs. You stop at the visitor centre in Alloway, where you have the opportunity to find out more about this remarkable man.

You continue to Ardrossan where you catch the ferry to the Isle of Arran. You’re dropped off at your accommodation in Brodick.

Day 2Brodick

Arran is alive with wildlife, mountains, beaches, pubs, and restaurants. There are many options of how you can spend your time on the island, depending on the weather and your group’s interest; your driver-guide will arrange the best day out for you.

You may explore the mountainous north of the island, some of Arran’s, best beaches, Lochranza Castle, and the Arran Distillery.

Arran is also home to many stone circles dating from the Neolithic period and the early Bronze Age. You visit Machrie Moor and its six stone circles; and after exploring this area you travel south through the harbour villages of Blackwaterfoot.

Travelling back to Brodick you see The Holy Isle across the water, owned by the Samye Ling Buddhist Community.

You may make a stop at the Arran Cheese Shop, a family-owned business that’s now famous all over the world.

At Brodick, we find Brodick Castle, and situated in the shadow of this imposing red sandstone castle is Arran Brewery. This microbrewery blends naturally with its stunning surroundings, combining the island’s unique water with the finest local ingredients. You can sample this ale in many of the local pubs and restaurants; a perfect way to round off your day! (B)

Day 3Brodick - Edinburgh

Today you return to the mainland on the ferry running between Lochranza and Claonaig. This short 30-minute crossing takes you onto the Kintyre Peninsula.

You travel along the coastal road to the charming fishing village of Tarbert. The village sits on the narrowest strip of land between the two bodies of water, forming a natural harbour.

From Tarbert, you follow Loch Fyne toward the whitewashed village of Inveraray, where you have free time to explore and have lunch. After lunch, you continue over the ‘The Rest and be Thankful’ mountain pass. From here it’s a short drive to Luss and the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond before returning to Edinburgh. (B)
