Why Travel to Brodick, Scotland

Located on the breathtaking Isle of Arran, charming Brodick is known as the "Scotland in Miniature". Despite its relatively modest size, the picturesque area somehow hit the lottery and gathered all the distinguished Scottish features. It doesn't matter what views you are hoping to enjoy during your Scotland travel, the Isle of Arran has something to offer you. It's overflowing with the scenic hills, beautiful lochs, and amazing glens. And, of course, it's impossible to imagine Scotland without the ancient castles.

The lovely city of Brodick is a perfect starting point for your Isle of Arran exploration. Being the largest village on the island, it offers several great accommodation options to choose from as well as a bunch of excellent restaurants and shops. The town's main tourist attraction is the magnificent Brodick Castle. Built in the 12th century, the fortress boasts a rich and fascinating history in addition to its luxurious interiors. If you set off on a Brodick tour with children, they will love to explore the castle's amazing play area.

Another great place to visit during your Brodick travel is the Isle of Arran brewery. To quench your thirst, you can enjoy a guided tour with a memorable tasting in the end or you are welcome to just come and buy delicious local beers and ales from the brewery's shop.

Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular activities during any Brodick itinerary is hiking. There is a wide range of trails to choose from, but we advise starting with the Glen Sannox - Glen Rosa route. It connects two of the most beautiful Scottish glens and provides a unique opportunity to see the red deer and golden eagles in the wild!
