Isle of Arran 2015

Here are some photographic highlights of our trip to the Isle of Arran 2015. We got the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick on a lovely clear day in January and booked into the Auchrannie Resort (Groupon deal) for a couple of nights. The island has a road B880 which cuts through some beautiful scenery and runs through its centre from east to west. We decided to do the bottom half the first day and the top half the second. Because of the time of year we went, the roads were virtually empty. Which meant that we could stop in places that would otherwise have been impossible. Thus giving us some special extended moments of breathtaking views.

This is a very special island and we would return in 2018 for a camping trip and climb up Goatfell.
