Colours of Arran - Autumn 2016


One of the most colourful trips to my most visited island. I've visited Arran umpteen times but seldom do I remember the colours being just as glorious.

CalMac Ferry Ardrossan to Brodick, Arran

1st stop: Corrie. Perhaps the cutest village on the island with the most striking sandstone coastline. This is where I get to play "Geology Charades" with the kids!

What am I explaining?

Next stop: Sannox. Crossing the river to the beach and looking up the famous Glen Sannox.

And how about this for a grand finale? Waiting for the last ferry, with a bag of chips and sunset over Goatfell and the northern hills.
