Publisher's Information 2018

The Arran Coastal Way is one of Scotlandís Great Trails, and perhaps the finest circuit walk in the country. It runs for 65 miles (105 km) around the Isle of Arran in a memorable week-long hike from Brodick. Itís accessible from near Glasgow by the Ardrossan ferry. Famous as`Scotland in miniatureí, Arran is rich in scenery, castles, caves and standing stones. The walking is varied, from mountain paths to deserted beaches, from minor road-walking to boulder-hopping, and in places it is refreshingly rugged. Arranís wildlife is uniquely approachable, and its residents welcoming.

A project funded by the Coastal Communities Fund created many miles of new and improved path with fresh waymarking, leading to this fully revised second edition. Based on three research trips in 2017, the text and photographs were thoroughly updated to cover the many route changes and extra options. This edition was Highly Commended by the judges of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild in October 2018.
