Getting on for a couple of months ago now me `n` me bro were having a few days hillwalking on the Isle of Arran, and walking along the road toward a watering hole, the Paddle Steamer Waverley chugged past, a couple of pics posted earlier on this thread, anyway checked the timetable and route and thought it`d be good to have a bit of a cruise, so we did that today. Though we didn`t walk any of the fells today, it was good to see what we`d walked and climbed from a different prospect and some crackin` views.

Nice photos-I usually do the Five Ferries cycle ride once a year which is a great trip.Sadly the ferries aren’t that reliable just now

You`re right there Laffy, not so long since it was only really bad weather that knocked the ferries off, now it`s often mechanical problems, and staffing issues as well. It`s an adventure in itself getting to and from the islands, must be a torment to folk who live out there, not to mention business disruption.

Great place Arran-cycling around the island is a good challenge but in the west side, cycling along the shore, is beautiful.Stop at the distillery at the top end, the ride back to catch the last ferry back and chips on the boat

Goat Fell the highest peak on Arran from Brodick Castle is a superb walk.

That`s a great day out, did it about 10 years ago now, will have to have another go. That road along the west coast is lovely and quiet, in fact once past the Brodick - Whiting Bay stretch there`s not that much traffic.

I’ve tried to do the whole ride around in under 3 hours-best is 3 15 so it’s beyond me.I’ve had some great days there though and the ride back on the ferry after a day in the saddle is something to savour.

If I remember rightly, it took me a tad longer than that, probably about 7hours plus, in defence though I stopped at the cafe in Lamlash for a breakfast, the cafe in Blackwaterfoot for a late breakfast, Machrie Golf Club for a tea break, the Stags Pavillion in Lochranza for a lunch, combined with a visit to the distillery, and the Corrie Hotel for a pint, Great day out :D

The last few posts had me thinking about cycling round Arran again, did it yesterday, probably not as quick as the likes of Laffy or MRF would do it, a strenuous but enjoyable day, the roads very quiet as shops, cafes, etc shut for the funeral of our Queen.

Strictly speaking, not a day on the fells, but 57 miles and 3,150 feet of climbing, according to my GPS, it felt a good day out.
