    Walking on Arran: The best low level walks and challenging mountain routes

    £12.95
    The 45 walking routes in this Isle of Arran guidebook range from easy 3km (2 miles) nature trails to long arduous mountain routes with scrambles (up to 32km) providing thorough coverage of Arran, including the ascent of Goatfell and nearby Holy Isle. Most routes are 10 to 15km long but many give opportunities to create longer cross-island walks.

    This guidebook describes 44 walks on the popular and accessible Isle of Arran. The routes are between 2 and 20 miles (3 - 32km) in length, ranging in difficulty from easy waymarked forest trails to more arduous mountain walks, exposed ridge routes and scrambles. The book includes both linear and circular walks, and there are opportunities to link routes together and create longer walks across the length and breadth of the island.

    Highlights include Goatfell, the nearby Holy Isle, Beinn Nuis, Beinn Tarsuinn, the Sannox Horseshoe, Glen Rosa and the Cock of Arran. All the routes are clearly described with OS 1:50,000 mapping, with extra notes revealing the archaeology, history and natural wonders of the island. The book includes background information on travel to Arran, public transport, and a Gaelic/English glossary.

    There's something here to suit walkers of all fitness levels and abilities. Often described as 'Scotland in miniature', Arran boasts a rich variety of landscapes, and walks have been chosen to showcase this variety. For an island, travel to Arran is remarkably easy: it is not far to Glasgow, from where onward connections to the Isle of Arran are swift and frequent.
