I'll be there, I love Arran and my Great Granny came from Arran, so i've been a few times. I'll probably be there in advance of you lot as I hope to camp for a couple of days. Tarmac circuit of the island is nice if you stick to the coast, inland roads are mega steep, did it once anti clockwise on a Brompton :shock: :lol:

Eager to try the red or black graded routes marked out by the Arran MTB Club. I could email them and ask nicely if one or more of their members might like to join us and guide us around the route on the day :wink:

Looking forward to it :wink: ,

I'd like to go, i take it bikes are free on the ferry so you just dump your van/car/whatever on the mainland and pedal onboard?
Is it mostly offroad and what sort of distance are you looking at, overall?
