The Isle of Arran is located off the west coast of Scotland. This island of approximately 5,000 inhabitants is heavily dependent on tourism; despite its small size, it has a good infrastructure to cater to the large number of visitors. Farming and forestry also play an important role in the economy of the island.
The isle of Arran enjoys a mild temperate climate. Summer is the best time to visit; the average temperature is a few degrees warmer than the national average. The average temperature during winter is 9°C.
The island is often referred to as ‘Scotland in Miniature’. This is because its topography is very similar to the mainland. The northern part, i.e. the Highlands is rocky, while the south, i.e. the Lowlands is green and lush and also where most of the population is concentrated.
