Before more lock downs and Covid-19 restrictions came in force, we have been able to squeeze in a few recce trips to the Isle of Arran. The weather was not always kind; Goat fell with horizontal rain is interesting I can tell you… The landscape is spectacular as you can see in the photos. The area is challenging, steep climbs and ridges and lots of tussocks and bogs in the lower areas, but that’s what a Mountain Marathon is all about isn’t it? The combination of mountains and sea is very attractive. We have seen deer and heard the rutting calls loud from the tops of the ridges and seen many seals basking on their rock in the sun. What a special place. Can’t wait until June to show you all what a beautiful place this is!
