Adventures on Arran

 Reasons why the Isle of Arran is the busiest island in Scotland…

Almost 1,000,0000 visitors to Arran in 2018 (here). Just 13 Hotels on The Island

This page gives a few of the adventures that the Isle of Arran has to offer. Ideal for folk who have bought a bedroom in our new Hotel-Room-Ownership initiative. Whether adrenalin-fuelled action-packed, or relaxation, there is a lot of enjoyment to be found…

Things To Do on Arran


Arran has many golf courses. Overlooking Holy Island above. Sannox Golf Course embraced by magnificent mountains pictured below…

Sannox Golf Course: A 5 Minute Walk From The Latest Hotel Ownership

Mountain Climbing

Into climbing? Our latest hotel purchase/renovation and hotel-room-ownership is one of the places where many mountaineers end up staying once they walk back down Glen Sannox. Hence Argyll Group spending a great deal of time and effort on high-spec., insulation. To keep the property warm and dry whilst not costing a fortune in heating bills.

Atop the highest peak: Goat Fell. Brodick Bay to the left with Holy Isle peaking above it.

Mountain climbing is such a major attraction that the biggest retail shop in Brodick is dedicated to this venture.

Likely suitable for the kids. There is plenty more to do of a gentler pace for those folk who are looking for a quieter pace of island life. A main attraction that the island has is it caters for all ages and all stages, whether quiet monastic contemplation at the Holy Isle Buddhist Retreat, or the high energy of this. When the family all gets back from the day’s fun and enjoyment, at least the youngsters will be tired and ready for a good nights sleep.
