Isle of Arran Residentials

Arran is one of the most southerly Scottish islands and measures just 19 miles long and 10 miles wide. It has pretty villages along the coastline, a rugged and mountainous interior and green rolling hills with woodland in the South. While feeling stunningly remote it is easily accessed from Glasgow, with Glasgow Central railway station being our meeting point for the trip.

The aim of the residential is to explore Arran, it's landscape, wildlife and coastline and fulfil the requirements of the John Muir Discovery Award. We will spend one or two days undertaking conservation work with the Arran Rangers around the island and another day or two on outdoor activities including walking and scrambling, all of which will allow us to explore the area. We will also make sure that we leave sufficient time to go in search of local some of the amazing wildlife found on Arran such as seals, basking sharks, red deer and puffins.
