Arran Mountain Adventure Weekend Isle of Arran, Scotland

With Mark Reid FRGS – author of ‘The Inn Way’ guidebooks & Mountain Leader

Spend 3 days on the rugged and dramatic Isle of Arran, often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’, guided by Mark Reid and Richard Duckworth, both highly experienced Mountain Leaders.

Discover adventurous routes, ridges, scrambles and summits, taking you far away from crowds and into a world of majestic mountains. Our routes will take us into the glens and granite mountains in the heart of Arran with its four Corbetts of Goatfell (874m), Caisteal Abhail (859m), Beinn Tarsuinn (826m) and Cir Mhor (799m). Despite their modest height for Scottish mountains, these are rugged mountains on a grand scale that require a head for heights and a good level of fitness, as the routes will include Grade 1 scrambles, steep broken ground, granite boulder fields and dramatic ridges.

  • Fantastic guided mountain walks with Mark Reid and Richard Duckworth
  • Experience the camaraderie of walking the Scottish mountains with like-minded walkers
  • Share your sense of achievement on each summit and also at the end with your fellow walkers
  • Small group size – maximum 12 people with two Mountain Leaders.


This 3-day mountain adventure weekend will be based at Brodick on the Isle of Arran. There are regular ferries between Ardrossan and Brodick, operated by Caledonian MacBrayne. Ardrossan is about 30 miles to the south-west of Glasgow. The ferry takes 55 minutes.

Brodick offers a range of accommodation including pubs, hotels, B&Bs and campsite. For more information VisitArran


We will meet each morning at 9:30am at Brodick for a chat about the day, weather forecast and kit check. We will then either walk straight from Brodick on a circular route or catch a bus northwards along the A841 to Corrie or Sannox from where we will walk back to Brodick on a linear route. All walks will be finished by around 5pm.

The routes will be decided each day given the weather forecast and group needs. The walks may include the classic ‘Three Beinns’ horseshoe walk (Beinn a Chliabhain, Beinn Tarsuinn and Beinn Nuis), Goatfell, Stacach Ridge (Grade 1), Cioch na h-Oighe (Grade 1), Glen Rosa, Glen Sannox Horseshoe (Cir Mhor) or the North Glen Sannox Horseshoe (Caisteal Abhail).

All walks will be demanding full day mountain walks with steep broken ground, granite boulders and tors, exposed narrow ridges (including Grade 1 scrambles) and challenging mountainous terrain. We may experience adverse weather conditions. A good level of fitness and a head for heights is required for this 3-day mountain adventure walking weekend.

8pm: Meet at a Brodick pub each evening to recount our day’s adventures over a meal and drink (optional)
