Arran is not called Scotland in miniature for nothing. The fault line divides the island into two very different sections – the rocky and mountainous north and the lush green pastures of the south – just like the Scottish mainland! Arran is only 56 miles in circumference, so nowhere is more than half an hour’s drive away from the village you’re staying in. We have golf courses, castles, museum, a distillery and fantastic local produce – ideal for souvenirs or just to enjoy on your break. More at www.visitarran.com

If travelling by air the closest airport is Prestwick Airport and then Glasgow International Airport, have a bash at www.skyscanner.net multi scan flight providers. The AA website offers up to the minute traffic information as well as route planning. It’s worth remembering that if you’re going to leave your clubs at home and hire clubs you should contact the golf club in advance to secure your set
