There are tours, and then there is this tour! The Isle of Arran is wonderful. We go to the island with a difference - we are going to hike the Goatfell Mountain!
Pack a lunch for this tour. We meet early and head to Ardrossan Ferry Terminal on the West Coast. Once we get checked in, we are leaving the coach behind and taking a boat over the Clyde Estuary to the Island itself. Arran is huge so we are only going to spend time in and around Brodick but we will do it in style by hiking the mountain!
The ferry takes almost one hour so you can have breakfast. Then we meet up in Brodick and go for a walk through the town. We'll pass the shops and enter the golf course and park whcih crosses a lovely stream. Next up we take the beach! The sand is long here and the walk is usually very peaceful.
We emerge onto a path outside of Brodick and head into Brodick Castle Country Park - some of you might leave us here and go off to explore the castle and the grounds. The rest of us will head through the forest and into the trees. As the path goes up and up we eventually break through the tree line and out route opens up before us.
We'll keep going strong and some of us won't make it to the top but the walk is rewarding, often with great views at the top across the sea and Brodick.
This is a tough tour, but a fun one!
So, why should you pay the price we ask? Well, there are several reasons. Firstly, our guide is very experienced with over eight years of touring with International Students around Scotland. You'll get stories, history and memories from previous tours. Secondly, we offer fun things on the tour for you to get involved with, the most amazing of these is the legendary, Bus Bingo, where you can win some prizes with a free game on the way home. Finally, we have back up plans for nearly everything we do so if the weather, or something crazy, decides to try and ruin our day, we will do everything we can to ensure we still have a great day out.
So join us for an awesome tour and meet some new friends while making new memories!
