Arran is also known as a golfer's paradise with seven courses within easy reach of the property including a "top 100" course at Blackwaterfoot. There are mountains to climb and coastal areas to explore, while the more adventurous may try gorge walking, quad biking or take a high-speed boat trip around the island.
