best way to get to Arran

by mjfeaster

How would I get from Glasgow to Arran? Also, do you know what the cost of entry is into the botanic gardens? Any other recommendations for nature/scenery lovers visiting Glasgow for three days? We will be going over to Edinburgh for five days after. Thanks again for all of your help.

Calmac run two ferry routes to Arran in summer, but you will have to get yourself from Glasgow to their departure points. Timetables here:

You can get a train direct from Glasgow to Ardrossan, which seems the easiest route (ferry takes just over an hour). Train journey time is just less than an hour. Times and fares on www.nationalrail.co.uk

yep, train is the easiest way, other sights from Glasgow... train to Balloch and see Loch Lomond or get off at Dumbarton and visit the 'rock'. The Ayrshire coast can offer spectacular sunsets but sadly they are a bit unpredictable. I have heard that the Milngavie (pronounced Mill-guy)area offers great views accross the city of Glasgow and beyond.

When you take the train to Ardrossan, make sure the train goes to Ardrossan Pier, otherwise you will have a hefty walk. You should be looking for trains that are going to end up in Largs. The line splits beforehand and you don't want to end up in Ayr!! The Ardrossan Pier trains run to coincide with the ferries (CalMac or Caledonian MacBrayne). If you are there at the right time of year, the Waverley (the last ocean-going paddle steamer in the world) runs trips to Arran from, I think, Largs (easily reached by train from Glasgow) and also from Ardrossan and/or Ayr. However, the Waverley site will give you all info. Another place that's nice to visit within your interests is Kelburn Castle & Country Park (see website). Take the train to Largs and they run a shuttle bus from there.

Travel Tips for Glasgow

Glasgow

by chico4u

Glasgow lies in the valley of the Clyde between two ranges of hills. It is a city build on hills, especially on the northern side of the river. It is the largest city and seaport in Scotland and the third largest in population in the British Isles. One of the most important buildings in Glasgow is the thirteenth century Cathedral. This beautiful cathedral is noted for the rypt, or 'Laigh Kirk', consecrated by Bishop Joselin in 1197.

The Chippie

by gordonilla

I recently enjoyed a "real" pudding supper from a Glasgow chip shop. It is some years since I last had such good chips!

The Blue Lagoon branch situated underneath Glasgow Central Station is one of the best. Don't forget to buy a glass bottle of Irn Bru to go with your chips.

Hampden Park

by bonio

The home of most major soccer matches played by Scotland as well as domestic cup finals, the Scottish Claymores and 2003 NFL Worldbowl.
Impressive stadium now that all the renovation work has been completed, food a little expensive and no chance of a beer either!

Byres Road in Glasgows...

by ardhu

Byres Road in Glasgows Westend. Very near the University the best way to describe this area is eclectic. All types of food from fast to fancy.Cafes and bars galore.The best thing to do is sit,relax,have a coffee and people what.

cheap and cheerful

by linzeebee about Glasgow School of Art

The Art School as its known is a wicked night out, tho sometimes its a bit quiet. drinks are cheap, tho the bar can take a while and on the whole the people are friendly. Best thing is the variety of music - techno, electro, drum n bass, northern soul, funk....tho not all on the same night! Has regular nights with top class dj's and its cheap to get in, esp with a student card! i'd say anything goes!
