Lamlash Bay sits on the east side of Arran.  From the pier there is a wonderful view across to Holy Island.  The harbour was historically more significant than Brodick Bay, for example sheltering King Hakon IV of Norway’s boats before their defeat at The Battle of Largs in 1263, which effectively ended the Viking threat to Scotland.  Nowadays it is an affluent yachting harbour and a popular visitor and tourist destination.  Day trips are available to Holy Island, which is 3 km long and rises to over 1,000 ft  at Mullach Mor.  From a conservation point of view, the northern section of the bay is designated as a “No Take Zone” to protect marine life and fish stocks.
