Island sights in Isle Of Arran
- Sort by:
Just off the coast is Holy Island, owned by the Samye Ling Tibetan Centre and used as a retreat, but day visits are allowed. The ferry makes eight trips a day (£10, 15 minutes) from Lamlash and runs between May and September. No dogs, alcohol or fires are allowed on the island. There’s a good walk to the top of the hill (314m), taking two or three hours return. It is possible to stay on the island in accommodation belonging to the grandiose-named Holy Island Centre for World Peace & Health. Although designed more for groups doing yoga and meditation courses at the centre, individuals are welcome. There’s also a dining room and library for guests.
