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.
Two people were rescued after they got lost on Goatfell in worsening weather conditions after a five hour search.
A new book has been described as giving the most comprehensive treatment of the circumstances surrounding the Goatfell murder more than 130 years ago.
