We are back after spending a week on the beautiful Isle of Arran. We love Arran and we had our summer holiday there last year too. It is so peaceful but there is so much to do and it's the perfect place for a family holiday.
Again, we stayed in a little cottage in Lamlash Bay and enjoyed waking up to views of the Holy Isle each morning. The weather was mixed....there was blue skies, grey skies, sunshine and rain! But we were out and about, rain or shine. Most of our time was spent outdoors. We did lots of walking visiting the Giants Graves on Whiting Bay and also walking right over the top of Mullach Mor on the Holy Isle. We are lucky as Miss M loves to be outdoors, she can walk for miles and doesn't complain so long as there are snacks along the way! Miss M also went pony trekking which she loved, she talked about it for days afterwards.
We went to the Arran Annual Farmers show which was fantastic even though in the morning it rained very heavily. The Arran Pipe Band were there as well as lots of horses, sheep, cows etc and The Clan mountain biking stunt team. There was a dog agility course, and although we don't have a dog, we were able to borrow one so that Miss M could have a go of taking a dog around the course, lots of fun!
We played crazy golf and spent lots of time at various beaches around the island. Most evenings after dinner were spent at Lamlash pier where Miss M discovered a love of crabbing! She loved this so much and was always very careful about putting the crabs gently back into the water after admiring them for a short time!
We had such a great holiday. I am missing Arran already...but we have started planning to go back again next year!
