Holy Island, Lamlash, Isle of Arran, Scotland

Arran enjoys a reasonably regular ferry service from Ardrossan on the Ayrshire mainland and it is the main way to get there and away. There is a ferry from Lochranza on the north of the island but that is to the Mull of Kintyre (potentially adds a lot to the journey and so is best if the Mull is your destination or a stopping place on your ramble) and is a summer only affair. What you see here is a view from the Ardrossan-Brodick ferry to the south. Holy Island these days is home to a Tibetan Buddhist community but there remains a ferry to the island from Lamlash, the conurbation that it shelters on the mainland.
