Isle of Arran


A couple weekends ago I took a trip with a bunch of university students to the Isle of Arran, which is an island of the west coast of Scotland (not too far from Glasgow). I went with the intention of climbing Goat Fell, which is the tallest peak on the island. The weather was great which made the ferry ride over to the island very nice.

We ported in Bordick and set off for the mountain right away. It took between three-four hours to reach the summit. The others decided to turn back at some point, but I'm not the type to quit a nice hike, so I finished the hike alone. The view at the top was breathtaking, you could see for miles in every direction.

I decided to take a different route back down the mountain and ended up spending a little too much time taking photos. I lost track of time and before I knew it, I only had an hour to make it back to the ferry. It was complete misery trying to do a 2 hour hike in only one hour, but I made it back to the ferry just as they were taking off. I was looking like a hot mess; gushing sweat, clothes/shoes soaked from crossing streams, filthy, and completely exhausted.

It was worth it though... It's always an adventure!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day. Enjoy!
