Glen Rosa is a rural haven just outside the main port village of Brodick. It is ideally located for the holiday maker who wishes to escape from it all but would like the convenience of the shops, pubs and restaurants close at hand, whilst holidaying in a beautiful and tranquil location. The Island of Arran is famous around the world for its geographical importance and Glen Rosa is known as one of the best examples of a glacial valley in the U.K. Scottish Natural Heritage has recognised Glen Rosa as a site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). For those that are interested in nature, prepare to be spoiled rotten in Glen Rosa; golden eagles are regularly seen, deer feed all year on the hills, and there are plenty of sheep, horses, red squirrels, pheasants, partridges, and other wee birds. Around the Island it is possible to see basking sharks, dolphins, otters, and badgers.

Arran is the jewel in the Firth of Clyde and is one of the most accessible of all the Scottish Islands. There are two ferry ports on the mainland, the main one being the Ayrshire town of Ardrossan; the other is Clonaig, Mull of Kintyre. There are many activities you can enjoy on Arran including, pony trekking, fishing, tennis, mountain climbing and a plethora of fantastic golf courses. If you prefer slightly more unusual activities, why not indulge yourself in a bit of paragliding, quad biking or dawn expeditions with the National Trust. Or why not just indulge yourself in some of the tearooms and restaurants dotted around the Island, some of which have a built reputations and won awards off the Island. Time has no meaning on Arran, except when all too quickly it is time to leave.
