After a wonderful night’s sleep in twin beds! (This is the only room the hotel had left for a reasonable price!) we awoke and a wonderful breakfast at The Corrie Hotel. The only problem being that the waiter assumed I eat pork (which I don’t) and gave me a full Scottish breakfast! This was soon rectified with a lovely vegetarian breakfast and we were soon on our way to explore the rest of Arran!
We drove due north of Corrie to Lochranza bypassing Goatfell in the process – we didn’t climb Goatfell this time but next time we will! We ended up in a place called Lochranza that is at the very northern tip of the island complete with ruins of a castle!
Which of course I dually explored being an historian and lover of old castles! Lochranza is beautiful and offers beautiful views over to the Firth of Clyde and the Scottish mainland. We continued exploring the island by driving down the west coast of Arran and ending up back in Brodick after driving between the mountains!
I really enjoyed my first visit to Arran and I’m already planning my next visit complete with treating myself to an overnight stay in the Auchrannie hotel! Until next time!
