Isle of Arran
Favorite thing: See the Isle of Arran, it is Scotland in small version, everything is there - mountains, beaches, sheeps, seals, beautiful nature and nice people.
The way you can get there is - buy a train ticket inclusive ferry ticket at Glasgow Central and go by train to Ardrossan Harbour and there you get on the ferry operated by Caledonian MacBrayne Ltd. (0 1475 650 100), after an hour you will be at Brodick the main city of the Isle. If you are going there in winter like me, so be carreful, because the last ferry going back to mainland is going so about 1640 but in summer so about 1920. First ferry going to the Isle is going at 0945 but on sundays only in summer, in winter at 1230. The whole return ticket costs about 20 pounds. When you are there you can stay at Brodick and visit the castle and surroundings or you can buy a day bus ticket and make a bus trip around the whole Island, the bus drivers are very friendly and if it is possible (because the streets are very narrow) they make a stop only for you that you can take a picture.
So, have fun on the Isle of Arran!

Fondest memory: My friends I have been there with and I have made there.
Favorite thing: There are 2 roads that cut across Arran...the String Road and the Ross Road....both are long and steep but well worth the climb to see the views.
