Autumn Tints of Arran
Departing by Coach
Duration 4 Days
Available October 2022

At no time are we more assured of Arran’s beauty than in the autumn months, when its wild woods and wide open moors are aflame in a riot of red and gold foliage. Just add impressive castles, imposing mountains, and idyllic bays for a truly unforgettable trip.

At the always-impressive Brodick Castle, the sandstone walls seem to be lit from within by the late-year sunshine. Around the island’s rugged coast, the profusion of small villages that are often compared to ‘jewels on a necklace’ invite us in to explore.

Join us on a full-day circular tour of the island, learn the Norse origins of Whiting Bay and relax in comfort at our hotel.

The setting of autumn is truly staggering and the gardens at Brodick are a mass of year-round colour, but this is undeniably the best time to go as foliage blazes with reds, golds and ambers.

Day 1

We depart from our designated pick up points and head for Ardrossan in time to catch the afternoon ferry to Brodick. On arrival on Arran our coach will transfer us to Blackwaterfoot where our accommodation has been organised for the next three nights at the Kinloch Hotel.

In the evening following dinner there will be an informal welcome presentation on how to get the most out of your visit to Arran.

Day 2

Today following breakfast we have a circular tour of the island of Arran. Only 56 miles around its coastline, the small villages are compared to ‘jewels on a necklace’ strung out like pearls around the island.

From Blackwaterfoot we will visit Whiting Bay, Lamlash, Brodick – the capital of Arran; Corrie and Sannox under the shadow of Goat Fell and other mountains, and then down the west coast to Catacol and Pirnmill with its ’12 Apostles’.

We return to our hotel in time for dinner

Day 3

This morning we have included a visit the gardens of Brodick Castle. This is a castle you will never forget! Brodick Castle occupies a splendid position, well protected from westerly winds and looking east across the Firth of Clyde. The present garden dates from 1932 when the Duchess of Montrose started an ambitious woodland garden with a collection of rhododendrons. From the castle, paths wind downhill towards the seashore, and in a shady place there is a fernery and a delightful Bavarian summer house embellished with rustic work and lovely inlaid panels of pinecones. A walled garden, dating from 1710, has been restored and mixed borders on three sides retain the gardener’s interest throughout the year. We have free time this afternoon to explore Brodick.

The afternoon will be free in Brodick. We will return to our hotel for dinner.

Day 4

Sadly today we must head for home. This morning, following breakfast, we will travel to the ferry port in time for the crossing to Ardrossan, where we expect to arrive early afternoon. Thereafter we will return to our original pick up points to arrive late afternoon/early evening – your driver will be able to confirm a more precise return time en route home.
