  • A lot slower pace of life than the mainland. If you're the outdoors type then it's a great place. If you need the fast pace of the city then forget Arran. Amenities? What do you need? We have shops, schools, pubs, golf courses, etc. Friendly people? We haven't had a good ol' wicker man style burning in a while. Best thing to do is buy a ferry ticket and go visit for a week or two ... try before ya buy

  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or police.gov to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are. You can also look at the local tourist board website which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.

  • Arran is a beautiful island and very peaceful in winter and lots of tourists and activities in the summer months. Only problem can be getting to the island in the winter when the weather is bad. If the weather is really bad in winter think about stocking up on food as sometimes boat can't access the pier . I met my husband in Arran many years ago.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
