Heritage Site in Arran

Isle of Arran

The Isle of Arran the most southerly Scottish island and sits in the Firth of Clyde between Ayrshire and Kintyre. Arran is 19 miles long by 10 miles wide but has a remarkable diversity of landscapes and seascapes.The pretty villages on Arran's beautiful coastline are complemented by a rugged and mountainous interior in the north and green rolling hills and woodland in the south. From Ardrossan the ferry leaves to Arran which was inhabited by the Vikings for centuries but also has associations with the early Christians and abounds with stone circles, pictish carvings and burial cairns.

  • Although we have not set up any links to specific archeological sites, Arran abounds with sites marked on the tourist maps which are much recommended to visit while out walking around the island. You will easily find pictish, Viking and early Chritian heritage sites, even if there is not too much information given about them. Amongst many we identify two for your consideration: Auchagallon Stone Circle and Kings Cave.
