Remember, remember the fifth of November – but on Arran there are other dates too if you want to catch all the bonfire and firework action.

Kicking off in fine style and staging one of the biggest Guy Fawkes events on the island, Lamlash start the celebrations tonight (Saturday). Starting at 11am residents will be bringing wood to help build the bonfire and volunteers are always appreciated. The fire will be lit at 7pm and the fireworks follow shortly after at 7.30pm.

On Bonfire night itself, Tuesday November 5, Shiskine Valley, and Kinloch Hotel car park in particular, will come alive with activity as their bonfire is lit at 6.30pm and a fireworks display starts at 6.45pm.

In Whiting Bay, at the putting green, a BBQ will be lit at 5pm with a bonfire starting at 5.30pm and fireworks rounding off what is usually an enjoyably and social bonfire night at 6pm.

Also starting at 6pm at Pirnmill, will be their fireworks display which will take place on the beach. While in Brodick the bonfire and fireworks start on the beach at 7pm.

And it does not end there with Lochranza is going all out this year with their second Festival of Fire. Taking place on the evening of Friday November 8, starting from 7pm at the village hall there will be delicious hot soup, burgers and a licensed bar, and for the first time a professional show of compound fireworks.
