Season: autumn

You’ll notice the long sandy beach at Brodick Bay, which runs to the north of the town, as you arrive on Arran by ferry from Ardrossan, which is the usual route to the island.  Although the beach itself is wonderful for a walk, there are many attractions nearby, such as Brodick Castle, dating from the 13th Century and Brodick Country Park.  There’s also a brewery visitor centre, a pottery and fine shops in the town.  The Isle of Arran Heritage Museum is by Glenrosa Water, which itself flows onto the beach.
