Visit Brodick and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Brodick, North Ayrshire , is a small town on the Isle of Arran. At the centre of the East coast, and in a bay of particular beauty, it stands as the island capital. Daily steamers from the mainland touch at it first. At Brodick you find boating, bathing, sea fishing, and some of the finest views in Arran. It is also well placed for walking or climbing expeditions. Goat Fell, which overstands the North of the bay, can be climbed in one day from Brodick. Brodick Castle is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is open to the public daily in summer except on Sundays. The castle, parts of which date from the 14th century, was enlarged in the 17th and 19th centuries. Its gardens, which contain rare rhododendrons, semi-tropical plants and shrubs, and a walled rock-garden, are much admired.
Sir James Douglas stormed Brodick Castle at the beginning of Bruce's campaign, and it was from Brodick that Bruce launched his liberation of the mainland, which seven years later was to lead to the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.
