Three Arran villages have been selected for a pilot project seeking to support, recruit and train new professional childminders.
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.
Petrol and gas is transported to Arran via the north end of the island as legislation requires it to be transported on a vessel with an open deck. Diesel, however is not bound by the same restrictions and it can be brought in via the Ardrossan route.
The gravestones of three fishermen of Arran have been found in a quiet cemetery in Northern Ireland.
