Walk Isle Of Arran Scotland

Walk Isle of Arran, Scotland. The Isle of Arran is often referred to as 'Scotland in miniature'. Its northern mountain ranges contrast markedly with its southern moorlands and forests, while its coastline features placid bays and striking cliffs. Roads are limited in extent, but opportunities to explore on foot abound. This guidebook follows paths into the high mountains, taking in deep glens and rocky ridges. Forest trails are discovered and extensive moorlands are traversed, as the routes reveal the archaeology, history and natural wonders of the island. The needs of walkers are recognised, with background notes indicating where food, drink and accommodation can be found, along with information about visitor attractions island-wide and public transport around the island. Other walking routes, ranging from easy nature trails to arduous mountain scrambles, provide thorough coverage of Arran, including nearby Holy Isle and its Buddhist retreat. One visit simply isn't enough, and Arran will draw you back time and time again. Walking in the Isle of Arran: Complete Guide to Scotland in Miniature (Cicerone British Mountains).
