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.
The two distilleries on Arran were forced to shutdown production last week because they ran out of fuel.
The pioneering book is the first to chart this fascinating aspect of the island’s history which has, until now, been largely ignored.
