Welcome to the Arran Coastal Way! One of Scotland’s Great Trails.

he Arran Coastal Way offers walkers a challenging and rewarding 65-mile / 105 kilometre circular route around the beautiful Isle of Arran. Packed with amazing wildlife and fabulous scenery, the route is perfect for a week long walking holiday. The route can also be enjoyed as smaller sections and there are plenty of side trips and other attractions to visit as part of your trip to Arran.

As of June 2017 we are proud to announce that the Arran Coastal Way is recognised as one of ‘Scotland’s Great Trails’ and is the 29th Long Distance Route (LDR) to achieve this status. To be included in the Scotland’s Great Trails branded network, LDRs must fulfil certain criteria. For example, each trail is at least 25 miles long and largely off-road with a clearly defined path. The routes all have a high standard of waymarking and signage in place, with a range of visitor services along the way and an online presence with information to help all kinds of visitors plan a trip.

We hope this website gives you a taste of the route and helps you in your planning. You can view a breakdown of the different route options here. Please be sure to contact us if you have any questions, and to get on our website after walking, to give us feedback about your experiences.

Arran Coastal Way Walk Completion Certificates are available at the reception of The Douglas Hotel, opposite the ferry terminal in Brodick and Coastal Way t-shirts can be bought from Arran Active Outdoor Shop on Brodick seafront.
