Description

Hop over to to the picturesque, relaxed and laid back Isle of Arran to discover what makes the locals tick, amazing food and drink and get sight of some of the islands’ wildlife. Often described as “Scotland in Miniature”, the island is divided into Highland and Lowland areas. The majestic Goatfell towers over the island like a giant! The island has also been described as “a geologists paradise” due to the fact that the island lies on the “Highland Boundary Fault” which effectively almost splits Scotland in half.

This tour is designed as a quick 2-day introduction to the island and its people. You may want to spend more time there and a bespoke tour can be made up to allow you to do this.

  • Vehicle and Driver/ Guide
  • Entry to Isle of Arran Distillery Tour
  • Return Ferry crossing
  • 2-hour wildlife and geology boat trip to Holy Isle and Pladda
  • 1-night standard accommodation

Price does not include:
