About this book

The Arran Coastal Way is perhaps Scotland's finest circular long-distance trail, running 65 miles (105 km) around the Isle of Arran in a memorable week-long hike from Brodick. It's accessible from near Glasgow by the Ardrossan ferry. Famous as`Scotland in miniature', Arran is rich in scenery, castles, caves and standing stones. The walking is varied, from mountain paths to deserted beaches, from minor road-walking to boulder-hopping, and in places it is refreshingly rugged. Arran's wildlife is uniquely approachable, and its residents welcoming.

A project funded by the Coastal Communities Fund created many miles of new and improved path with fresh waymarking, leading to this fully revised second edition. Based on three research trips in 2017, the text and photographs were thoroughly updated to cover the many route changes and extra options. Arran Coastal Way contains all you need to plan and enjoy your Arran Coastal Way walk, including a Foreword by wilderness walker Cameron McNeish: detailed description of the route walked anticlockwise, updated for 2018 background on geology, pre-history and history whisky-making, wildlife and habitats boat trip to the Holy Isle new mapping of the entire route (1:55,000) information about public transport and travel lavishly illustrated, with 125 colour photographs on rainproof paper.
