The eagerly anticipated Arran Mountain Festival programme for 2022 is expected to be published within days in the run up to festival booking lines opening in mid January.

With bookings and popular trails in high demand – many being snapped up as soon as they are available – the festival programme offers all of Arran’s most popular routes as a staple, and a few ‘off the beaten track’ options as changing annual additions.

The ever-increasing popularity of the Arran Mountain Festival, which is set to take place between Friday May 13 to Monday May 16 this year, is largely due to the confidence-inspiring local walk leaders who have a local knowledge, and love, of the routes and mountains which are all classified according to difficulty and ability levels.

Naturally, Arran’s amazing landscapes and unique vista’s attracts thousands of visitors annually, however, the small group numbers, experienced walk leaders and the social aspect of the group walks – many with post walk refreshments later in the day – continue to see bookings sold out within days of booking lines opening.

Anyone interested in taking part in the festival can sign up at to receive updates and a notification when booking lines open. The 2022 programme will also be available with full details of all routes and activities on their website once published.
