Where I stayed
Belvedere Guest House
Boarded a bus from Glasgow... but I bought a ticket to the wrong destination! So I had to take a train and back track for a little more than an hour. Then... I missed my stop (not by any fault of my own - of course... the door wouldn't open no matter how hard I pushed the damn button!!).
At this point I was starting to have second thoughts about coming to this Island (as I'm sure you can imagine!!). BUT, I finally made it to Ardrossan and boarded the ferry for the hour long ride to this spectacular Island.
Arran is a mountainous Island
I finally arrived at the Belvedere House (this grand Victorian looking house with shrubs and fragrant gardens galore!). I asked the friendly proprietor where I should go for some drinks. He recommended the Ormidale hotel because on Sundays locals (and anyone else) comes out for a little Scottish Folk jam session.
I had so much fun and met some fantastic people who I may run into when I get to Ft. William tomorrow. Before I leave for Ft. William though, I'm going to rent a bicycle and ride around the Island for a few hours. So... stay tuned!!
