Walking on Arran Information

Season : SS21

Brand : Cicerone

Code : 5031285

This guide features 45 walking routes on this Isle of Arran ranging from easy 3km (2 miles) nature trails to long arduous mountain routes with scrambles.  Famed for being a 'Scotland in Miniature', this small island has a huge variety of landscapes.

The routes are between 2 miles (3km) and 20 miles (32km) in length, from easy waymarked forest trails to more arduous mountain walks, exposed ridge routes and scrambles. There are linear and circular walks to choose from, and opportunities to link routes together and create longer walks across the length and breadth of the island. With highlights including Goatfell, Beinn Tarsuinn, the Sannox Horseshoe, Glen Rosa and the Cock of Arran, there's something here to suit walkers of all tastes and all levels of fitness.

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, along with background information on travel to Arran, public transport, and a useful Gaelic/English glossary.

The book includes a summary of the Arran Coastal Way, a complete coastal walk around the Isle of Arran – for more details on the coastal route see The Ayrshire and Arran Coastal Paths.
