Arran Coastal Way
Often described as Scotland in Miniature, the Isle of Arran provides an opportunity to experience abundant archaeology, history and wildlife on this 65 mile (105 km) route.
This spectacular walk combines many varied habitats, a fascinating mixture of seaside paths, tidal beaches, forest trails and rolling hills. The paths are all well walked and should be easily completed by the average walker. However, it needs to be stressed that many parts of the Coastal Way are simple, basic paths that can be muddy or boulder strewn and which will, on occasion, require clambering over rocks. Although mostly at low level, you do have an optional climb to the top of Goat Fell, the island’s highest mountain (breathtaking views on a fine day). All around the island there are spectacular views including a superb vista on the south of the island to the famous Ailsa Craig bird sanctuary.
As parts of the Way are affected by tides you will be supplied with tidal information with your Tour Pack.
Although the Arran Coastal Way is only a short ferry trip across the Firth of Clyde, you feel that you are entering a different world!

Frequently Asked Question: When is the best time to walk the Arran Coastal Path?
Answer: April, May, June and September are the best months in our opinion. The weather is ideal for walking, the daylight hours are growing longer and wildlife abounds. In July and August the island is very busy and accommodation is often scarce and more expensive.
