Isles of Arran & Cumbrae

Resort - Arran

Overview

Often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’ The beautiful isle of Arran lies in the Firth of Clyde between the mainland and the Mull of Kintyre and rises spectacularly to almost 900 metres. The island is divided into highland and lowland, a geologist’s paradise. A memorable day as we catch the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick for a circular trip around the island visiting Lochranza, then along the West coast with views of the Mull of Kintyre as we travel to Blackwaterfoot before returning via the mountainous spine of the island to Brodick in time for the ferry back to the mainland.

Day 2 - Full day to the Isle of Arran

  • A memorable day as we catch the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick for a circular trip around the island visiting Lochranza. Situated just off Scotland’s west coast, Arran is known as Scotland in miniature where you’ll find an ever-changing coastline, dramatic mountain peaks, sheltered bays and densely forested scenery.

Day 3 - Day at Leisure

Day 4 - Full day to the Isle of Cumbrae & Largs

  • We follow the beautiful Ayrshire coast to Largs, where we board the ferry to Great Cumbrae, known as the jewel of the Clyde. One of Scotland’s most accessible islands and just four miles long and two miles wide, the seaside town of Millport has a delightful Victorian promenade and is home to Britain’s smallest cathedral – the Cathedral of the Isles.
  • We will also enjoy some free time in nearby Largs - a large, traditional seaside resort on Scotland's glorious western coast. A popular spot for sailing and with a fascinating history dating back to the Vikings this is a great place to enjoy a stroll!

Day 5 - Return Travel

Willowbank Hotel

Centrally located just a few minutes walk from the sea, with the rolling hills of Ayrshire inland, the family run Willowbank Hotel offers comfortable accommodation and a friendly welcome.
