The public are being invited to have their say on the relocation of the Arran ferry service to Troon which it is now being suggested will be for around two years – six months longer than previously predicted.
KNOWN as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, Arran is a condensed version of the best that Scotland has to offer. Arran is one of the most easily accessible islands as it is only a 55-minute crossing from Ardrossan to Brodick. The Claonaig to Lochranza ferry service from Kintyre makes the island easily accessible from the Highlands and islands as well.
Woodside Arran is set to expand its operation thanks to a grant from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) which could see the social enterprise boost its production by up to 50 per cent.
