Arran which means The Peaked Island in Gaelic,is a small island off the West Coast of Scotland. It is approximately twenty miles long and eleven miles wide and lies in the Firth of Clyde. Arran is often referred to as 'Scotland in Miniature', and captures many aspects of the beauty of Scotland as a whole, from towering granite peaks inviting hill walkers and climbers to peaceful sandy bays overlooked by palm trees growing in the warm climate of The Gulf Stream, due to the proximity of the Gulf Stream palm trees grow in profusion. The ferry from Ardrossan docks at Brodick, the island's main town, where there are two roads which cross the Island; the String Road from Blackwaterfoot in the west to Brodick in the east, and the Ross Road, which runs from Sliddery in the south west to Lamlash, one of the larger villages which overlooks the Holy Isle, home to the Eskdalemuir Buddhist Retreat Centre.
