My best friends family took me on their holiday to the Isle of Arran just before lockdown in the UK.
Sadly, we weren’t able to travel all over the Island however we did visit the island’s main town – Brodick.
Where is Arran?
Isle of Arran is situated in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. Brodick is halfway along the east coast of the island, and this village has a population of 621.
Brodick receives the Islands ferries that come across from Ardrossan in Scotland. It doesn’t take ages to travel on this ferry. From what I remember it was roughly 45 mins to an hour. It was a calm crossing when we went but it was incredibly windy.
828,262 passengers and 202,843 cars travelled on this ferry in 2016
Brodick has much economic activity. There are many family-owned business and tourist attractions such as the Auchrannie Spa and Resort, where we stayed.
