Although steep in places, this route is suitable for most biking novices and encompasses a diverse selection of Arran’s best attractions, from the Heritage Museum’s wealth of information and authentic experiences about the history of the island; to Brodick Castle - a stunning ancient 16th century estate which is now a popular country park with indoor and outdoor activities for all the family. Ancient and natural wonders are also plentiful along this route, with many opportunities to spot wildlife in the more challenging forested sections. Watch out for basking seals as you travel along the coastal path or take a diversion to climb Goatfell (Arran’s highest point)!
The Museum reflects the social history, archaeology and geology of Arran and her people. This wee gem is on the main road, at Rosaburn, just north of Brodick.
Gardens, woodland, an adventure play park and a castle packed with treasures make this a must-visit on Arran.
Goatfell stands at 874 metres making it the highest point on Arran.
