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.

About the Author:

Paddy Dillon is a prolific outdoor writer with over 60 guidebooks to his name, as well as more than a dozen booklets and brochures. He writes for a number of outdoor magazines and other publications, and produces material for tourism groups and other organisations. He lives near the Lake District and has walked in every county in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales; writing about walks in every one of them.

Review:

'It is an excellent guide, really detailed, which is what you need on the rocky terrain of Arran. It will attract people to visit Arran for a longer period to tackle not just the great ridges of the NE corner but the many easier walks to be found in the rest of the Island. Irish Mountain Log Magazine, Summer 2006
