Arran Costal Path Day 1 morning Brodick to North Sannox

So, a later start than I had planned to the walk, but on the plus side the amount of cloud cover on Goat Fell made it an even easier decision to take the low level route and go back to it later in the week as a day walk.

The lady from the ferry was so kind to take a photo of me before I got into my stride.

Before I got very far I saw a heron fishing in the stream just outside Brodick.

I then saw some interesting things along the road towards Corrie.

I was going to put in a photo of a cool pier that was absolutely tiny. It is currently on Kit’s phone, so we might put it on from there.

Then in Corrie and Sannox I saw these wonderful bollards in the shape of sheep to tie boats up to.

These were very good consolations for the fact that I was doing far more road walking than I like. There is a path between the road and Goat Fell but I missed the path. So, the road it was.

It was good to get off the road for a bit which happened at Sannox, but it was clear the path was used a lot by dog walkers. On reaching north Sannox I realised that it really would have been the perfect place for me to bivvi had I made it to Arran the night before.

    My Aunt lived on Arran for a long time and I spent much happy time there as a teen 🙂

    It is always great to have happy memories of places you were as a teen. Did you have any favorite haunts?

    They lived in Whiting Bay, and there was a waterfall there called Glenashdale which I loved. I liked Kilmarnock and seeing the seals. Also Corrie. Really I loved all of Arran!
