Scotland: Autumn Tints of Arran

From:£895

Summary

Often described as "Scotland in Miniature", Arran has a blend of Highland and Island scenery with granite peaks and deep glens to the north of the island, contrasting with its rolling and lush farmlands to the south. As you board the ferry at Ardrossan, you see the distinctive silhouette of Goat Fell rising dramatically from the clear waters of the Firth of Clyde giving a foretaste of your destination whose unique magic never disappoints.

Only 56 miles around its coastline, the small villages are compared to ‘jewels on a necklace’ strung out like pearls around the island. From Blackwaterfoot we will visit Whiting Bay, Lamlash, Brodick - the capital of Arran, the pretty village of Corrie under the shadow of Goat Fell and Sannox before passing the '12 Apostles' at Lochranza. Brodick Castle leaves a lasting impression, as the tall stately building beckons with the glow of warm sandstone. The setting is staggering and its garden is a mass of year-round colour, especially at this time of year when trees don their autumn cloaks and the foliage blazes with reds, golds and ambers.
