Brodick is the main town on the Isle of Arran, known as 'Scotland in miniature'.
Brodick is one of the largest and busiest settlements on Arran, and is the main commercial centre and ferry port. Not only is there a wide range of tourist facilities and services available including eating out and shopping, Brodick also makes a convenient base from which to explore and enjoy the island. Activities include angling, horse riding, cycling, golfing, walking and climbing.
Once the ancient seat of the Dukes of Hamilton, Brodick Castle houses a glorious collection of furniture, with some pieces dating as far back as the 17th century. The garden, created in 1923 by the Duchess of Montrose, has been lovingly restored and the grounds contain numerous paths offering great views of the island, and the chance of seeing red squirrels.
You can find out more about the history of the island by visiting the Isle of Arran Heritage Museum. Brodick is also home to an 18-hole golf course and a variety of cafés, shops and hotels by the town’s main road.
