Product Description


This guidebook presents a selection of 45 day walks on the popular and accessible Isle of Arran. The routes are between 2 miles (3km) and 20 miles (32km) in length, ranging in difficulty from easy waymarked forest trails to more arduous mountain walks, exposed ridge routes and scrambles. The book includes both linear and circular walks, and there are opportunities to link routes together and create longer walks across the length and breadth of the island. There's something here to suit walkers of all fitness levels and abilities.

Often described as 'Scotland in miniature', Arran boasts a rich variety of landscapes, and walks have been chosen to showcase this variety. There are few roads but ample opportunities to explore the island on foot, or using the excellent bus network. For an island, travel to Arran is remarkably easy: it is not far to Glasgow, from where onward connections to the Isle of Arran are swift and frequent.

All the routes are clearly described with OS mapping, with extra notes revealing the archaeology, history and natural wonders of the island. The book includes background information on travel to Arran, public transport, and a Gaelic/English glossary.
