The Arran Coastal Way
Opened in March 2003 by Cameron McNeish, the Arran Coastal Way offers a unique way to explore 65 miles of unfolding treasures. Starting in Brodick it weaves its way around a coastline mainly on raised beaches exposed after the retreat of the last ice age, dropping into sandy beaches with volcanic outcrops, along grassy paths and through pretty villages. The close proximity of the wildlife is so special and your first sighting of an otter or basking shark will stay with you forever.
Over recent years many of our guests walking the Arran Coastal Path have expressed how much they have enjoyed the picturesque village of Lochranza wishing they could have stayed additional nights to explore the area, find Hutton's Unconformity, have a tour around Lochranza Distillery, visit the iconic 13th century castle or just have a 'rest day'.
As a response we can arrange transfers as guests finish their day's walk, arriving at Kincardine Lodge for the first night and being transferred to the start of their next day's challenge after breakfast the following morning.
There are various options/combinations depending upon how far you intend to walk during each day, for example:
Day 1 - Walk from Brodick to Sannox - Transfer from Sannox to Kincardine Lodge
Day 2 - After breakfast, transfer back to Sannox to continue the walk from Sannox around the Cock of Arran to Kincardine Lodge
Walk to Pirnmill (with optional detour to Corrie Lochan) or Imacher or Machrie (standing stones) - Transfer back to Kincardine Lodge
Transfer after breakfast the following morning to Pirnmill, Imacher or Machrie to continue your journey
Please let us know if we can give advise as to suitable sections to cover as some parts of the coast can be quite challenging, particularly the Sannox to Lochranza section covering the Cock of Arran and Scriodan rocks.
If you don't wish to carry your own back-packs the Arran Baggage transfer will collect your luggage after breakfast and ensure that it reaches your accommodation on your next leg of the route.
