Arran has a little bit of everything from rolling hills and rugged mountains to lush glens and craggy coastlines, beautiful beaches, forests and of course, great walks in all these types of terrain.
There's a variety of wildlife here. Go up to Lochranza at the north of the island and you'll likely see red deer and stags grazing. Look up to the hills above the distillery there and if you're lucky, you might see golden eagles, of which there are several pairs here. Red squirrels have been forced out of most parts of the UK by the larger grey squirrel, but Arran is one of the strongholds for these small mammals. Seals can be seen basking on the rocks around the island; a great spot for seal spotting is Kildonan at the southern end. You might also see an otter or two around the coast, and you're sure to see families of swans who thrive on the seaweed.
