Route

Tag 1

Nach der Abreise aus Edinburgh reisen Sie Richtung Westen und verbringen den Tag im ländlichen Ayrshire. Genießen Sie die sanft geschwungene Hügellandschaft und die dramatische Küstenszenerie. Sie werden Gelegenheit zum Besuch des beeindruckenden Culzean Castles haben. Den Nachmittag verbringen Sie im Land des Robert Burns und besuchen Orte, über die er in seinen berühmten Gedichten und Liedern schrieb. Erfahren Sie alles Wissenswerte über den berühmten Volksdichter im kürzlich wiedereröffneten Besucherzentrum in Alloway, bevor Sie die Fähre über den Firth of Clyde nach Arran bringt. Sie werden zwei Nächte im Hafenstädtchen Brodick auf Arran verbringen.

Day 2

Entdecken Sie heute die Insel Arran mit ihren schroffen Bergen im Norden und den sanften Hügeln und hübschen Dörfern im Süden. Die Insel hat ein großes kulturelles Erbe, das bis in die Steinzeit zurück reicht. Zeugen dieser längst vergangenen Zeit finden sich überall auf der Insel in Form der vielen Standing Stones. Heute ist Arran besonders bekannt und beliebt für sein großes Angebot an guten lokalen Produkten, die von Whisky über Käse und Haferkeksen bis zu der Naturkosmetik von Arran Aromatics reichen.

Day 3

Am Morgen heißt es Abschied nehmen von Arran. Eine kleine Fähre bringt Sie auf die Halbinsel Kintyre. Auf dem Weg nach Norden fahren Sie entlang Loch Fyne in die weiße Stadt von Inveraray. Über den Bergpass von “Rest and be Thankful“ geht es hinunter an die “Bonnie Bonnie Banks“ – die schönen Ufer des Loch Lomond, bevor Sie am Abend nach Edinburgh zurückkehren.

Itinerary (English)

Day 1

You travel west past Glasgow and the Whitelee Wind Farm, Europe’s largest wind farm.

You then leave the modern landscapes, and travel into Ayrshire to visit the 18th century Culzean Castle. Here you have time to enjoy its dramatic cliff top setting, beautiful architecture, and elegant living spaces. You can also have lunch in the cafe or a picnic in the beautiful castle grounds.

Travelling towards Robert Burns’ birthplace you discover the places from his poems and songs. You stop at the visitor centre in Alloway, where you have the opportunity to find out more about this remarkable man.

You continue to Ardrossan where you catch the ferry to the Isle of Arran. You’re dropped off at your accommodation in Brodick.

Day 2

Arran is alive with wildlife, mountains, beaches, pubs, and restaurants. There are many options of how you can spend your time on the island, depending on the weather and your groups’ interest; your driver guide will arrange the best day out for you.

You may explore the mountainous north of the island, some of Arran’s, best beaches, Lochranza Castle, and the Arran Distillery.

Arran is home also home to many stone circles dating from the Neolithic period and the early Bronze Age. You visit Machrie Moor and its six stone circles; and after exploring this area you travel south through the harbour villages of Blackwaterfoot.

Travelling back to Brodick you see The Holy Isle across the water, owned by the Samye Ling Buddhist Community.

You may make a stop at the Arran Cheese shop, a family owned business that’s now famous all over the world.

At Brodick we find Brodick Castle, and situated in the shadow of this imposing red sandstone castle is Arran Brewery. This microbrewery blends naturally with its stunning surroundings, combining the island’s unique water with the finest local ingredients. You can sample this ale in many of the local pubs and restaurants; a perfect way to round off your day!

Day 3

Today you return to the mainland on the ferry running between Lochranza and Claonaig. This short 30 minute crossing takes you onto the Kintyre Peninsula.

You travel along the coastal road to the charming fishing village of Tarbert. The village sits on the narrowest strip of land between the two bodies of water, forming a natural harbour.

From Tarbert you follow Loch Fyne toward the whitewashed village of Inveraray, where you have free time to explore and have lunch. After lunch you continue over the ‘The Rest and be Thankful’ mountain pass. From here it’s a short drive to Luss and the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond before returning to Edinburgh.
