As the title says just back from Arran ,me and coln18 spent 4 days walking some of the Arran coastal route ,the walking was great and the camp spots could not have been more scenic ,and the wildlife was stunning
If you have not been to Arran i would recommend it
Here are some pics hope you enjoy


The walk along the coast to get to goat fell

Heading up goat fell

Getting nearer the top of Goat fell the cloud was covering the summit


The ridge below the summit




The island is littered with caves some of which are huge as you will see in some of the other pics

Laggen cottage which is in the middle of nowhere





Some of the many standing stones and stone circles











Cheers

Jason

Col might put some more pics soon

The Rainy Side of the Lakes.
That looks great.

I went climbing on Arran years ago, and then we had a spin around the island seeing some of the sights. It's very beautiful, and a good alternative to the Highlands if the weather's too bad up there.

Cheers, Michael.
