Welcome to our Island of Arran cam
Arran is the seventh largest island in Scotland and the largest island in the Firth of Clyde and is often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’. With only a 55 minute crossing time to the island it is well worth a visit on any trip to Scotland.
One of the largest and busiest settlements on Arran, Brodick is the main town and ferry port on the island
The Highland-Lowland dividing line goes right through the middle of Arran, dividing the wild, unspoilt, mountainous north, dominated by the peak of Goat Fell, and the forest, farmland and resorts of the south.
The capital of Arran is Brodick, where Brodick Castle, once the ancient seat of the Dukes of Hamilton, houses a glorious collection of furniture, with some pieces dating as far back as the 17th century. It is here that Wyvex Media, the parent company of Scots Heritage Magazine has an office for it’s local newpaper, The Arran Banner. The office is in a prime position in the town and overlooks the comings and goings of the ferry to Brodick. So if you keep an eye on the webcam you may be in luck and catch the ferry coming in.
