Arran Mountain Festival
18th – 21st May 2018
Stunning coastline and breathtaking mountain tops: “Scotland in miniature” has it all. The Arran Mountain Festival offers walkers and more experienced climbers alike the chance to explore the island’s amazing landscape. The beauty of the festival is that you go out on adventures in the comforting embrace of a group with guides on hand to lead the way and to help ensure your safety.
The walks vary from fairly relaxed strolls, through to some more serious ridge traverses and some proper scrambling, all of it with those epic mountain and sea views for company.
