Isle of Arran is just off the coast and has a bit of everything: mountains, forests, beaches, glens. There's plenty of history, too - head to Brodick Castle for a peak at the ancient seat of power, or Lochranza Castle, with its underground prison, 'the pit'. Find out about the local cheese, beer and whisky. Or take your binoculars for a chance to see seal colonies, otters, eagles, basking sharks, porpoises, and over 100 species of birds. Isle of Arran is close to Craig Tara
