Episode 6: ‘The Cure’ – Isle of Arran

What to do when you wake up to a sunny day in Scotland and you’re longing for an island getaway? This episode of Wild for Scotland heads on a day trip to the Isle of Arran.

‘The Cure’ is a story about a day trip from Glasgow to the Isle of Arran. I take you with me to the island on a hike that was only made harder by the one too many drams I had the night before in the pub… We’re hiking to the top of Goatfell, the highest mountain on Arran.

After the story, I share some of my top tips to visit the Isle of Arran, whether you are coming for a day or longer, hiking Goatfell or want to see something else the island has to offer.

They don’t call it “Scotland in Miniature” for nothing!
