A badly injured cyclist was airlifted to hospital from Arran on Sunday after an accident on the String Road.

The 41-year-old man was later said to be in a ‘serious but stable’ condition in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow, where the man lives. He is thought to have been visiting Arran with his family.

The incident happened about 10.30am on Sunday August 18 when the male cyclist fell from his bicycle whilst riding on the String Road near to Glenloig  access road sustaining serious injuries. It is understood there were no other vehicles involved.


Emergency services attended the scene and the casualty was rushed by ambulance from the scene and airlifted to hospital in Glasgow by an air ambulance which landed in Ormidale Park in Brodick.

A section of the String road was closed for around five hours to allow for the casualty evacuation and subsequent enquiries to be conducted.
