Museums and Art Galleries in ArranIsle 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.
Arran should be explored on foot, but it has been known to be raining at times and a few indoor options are linked below. Perhaps, as attractions, not the best that Scotland has to offer but interesting nevertheless. The Balmichael Visitor Centre is the centre for the alternative way to explore - by Quad bike!
