Arran

Arran or the Isle of Arran is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde and with an area of 432 square kilometers, it is the seventh largest Scottish island. Arran has around 4629 residents. Its main industry is tourism.

There is a huge diversity of wildlife and it has been described as a geologist’s paradise due to its divided landscape of highland and lowland areas.

The main villages on Arran include Lochranza, Brodick, Lamlash, Whiting Bay, Blackwaterfoot and Corrie.
