The Isle of Arran holds countless points of beauty and of historic (and prehistoric) significance. Only two hours from Glasgow (approx. 1 hour by train plus 1 hour by ferry) off the West Coast of Scotland, Arran’s most noticeably spectacular feature may be Goatfell, it’s highest point, but a 30 minute bus journey south to Whiting Bay leads to a 2 hour circular walk with stone age, iron age, and natural sites of interest.

Here are the beautiful Glenashdale Falls. This double waterfall (whose height of 140 feet/45 metres my camera couldn’t fully capture) is stunning. There’s also a great lookout point from which to admire it’s imposing scale and plummeting water.
