Two days walking on Arran

Arran from Ardrossan Harbour

The past couple of days Anne and I were on Arran for a walk from Whiting Bay to Lochranza staying in Brodick overnight on route.
We left our overnight bag in the ferry terminal at Brodick and caught the bus to Whiting Bay to start the walk up Glenashdale past the waterfalls. Just past the waterfalls we had our fist little route problem getting to the forest track, the way was blocked by bramble bushes so we ended up walking half a kilometre instead of 20metres.
On route through the forest tracks we came across a couple of very large toadstools see them in the photos.
Next day after a good nights sleep at the B&B we dropped off the overnight kit again and headed up Glen Rosa. The cloud was down on the tops so we decided not to go high but went over the bealach scramble into Glen Sannox, of course the cloud lifted but by then it was too late to change our mind.
I had hoped to make our way round the Cock of Arran to Lochranza to complete an end to end but we didn't have time so caught the bus at Sannox back to the ferry.

A lovely couple of days view photos here
