Kilmory, Isle of Arran
Kilmory is situated at the south end of the Isle of Arran, with open views over the Firth of Clyde to the Ayrshire coast, Ailsa Craig, the Kintyre peninsula and, on a clear day, Northern Ireland. It contains the charming hamlet of Lagg, nestling in a hollow on the banks of Kilmory Water, with the picturesque 18th century Lagg Hotel. Kilmory has its own primary school, village hall, church, and a regular bus service (in both directions) connecting the village with the larger villages of Brodick, Lamlash, Whiting Bay, and Blackwaterfoot. The regular post office provides the usual services as well as banking facilities. Mobile bank service is also provided by the two main Scottish banks. A library service visits fortnightly. Worthy of mention is the walk from the village hall, through the bluebell woods via the 5000 year old Torrlinn cairn, to Kilmory beach thought by many to be the finest beach on Arran. This two-mile stretch of unspoilt sand and rock pools is a spectacular spot with views to the Mull of Kintyre, Ailsa Craig, and the Irish coast beyond. For wildlife enthusiasts, there is plenty to enjoy; sea life, rare wild birds, and animals.
The main ferry port at Brodick has a selection of shops and leisure facilities, including Auchrannie Hotel, with swimming pools, a sports hall, and spa. There is also an 18-hole golf course, primary school, banks, and hotels. Brodick Castle, a National Trust for Scotland property, sits 2 miles to the north and overlooks Brodick Bay. Brodick is the port from which regular sailings throughout the day, serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne, lead to the mainland at Ardrossan. Commuters and travellers now benefit from Road Equivalent Tarrif (RET) ferry fares, which are substantially lower than before. Ardrossan has a mainline rail station, with trains to Glasgow that connect with the ferry times, and is approximately 30 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Prestwick International Airport is 16 miles to the south of Ardrossan, with Glasgow International Airport 24 miles east of Ardrossan.
Other interesting places on the island include the brewery at Claddach, the distillery at Lochranza, and Arran Provisions factory in Lamlash. Also at Claddach is Arran Aromatics soap, candle, and perfume factory. The recently constructed Lagg Distillery offers facilities and visitor amenities.
Arran has some of the most spectacular hill-walking opportunities in Scotland and its seven golf courses ensure that tourists and locals alike are well provided for. For those with an interest in horses, there is an equestrian centre at Blackwaterfoot, on the west coast of the island. A sailing club can also be found in Lamlash. The island offers, by prior arrangement, opportunities to shoot pheasant, stalk red deer, as well as some very good fresh water and sea fishing.
