The Isle of Arran comes top in a poll of Scottish islands, placed fourth in a list of the best islands which has been complied by reviews on the website, Trip Advisor.
Arran features highly on the stopovers and anchorages of several of our Scottish cruises because it is such a wonderful island to visit, offering many facets of island life to the visitor.
On our trips ashore guests are very likely to see a range of wildlife, from the very approachable wild red deer to the resident golden eagles. Castles and villages dot the coastline offering excellent stopovers for getting immersed in the local history or doing some speciality shopping.
Arran Distillery is well worth a visit – some of the exclusive whiskies they offer are only available from the visitor centre. Or call in at Arran Aromatics who supply ‘Splendour’ with all our soaps and shampoo, infused with original fragrances inspired by the landscape and scents of the island.
The Isle of Arran is excellent for walking with a trek up the highest hill, Goat Fell, for the outdoor enthusiast as an option or a one way walk along the coastline, with the fun of being picked up by tender at the end.
