Isle of Arran Wild Camping

We based ourselves in Glen Sannox for this camping trip being near to water, flat and close to an eating establishment, the Glen Sannox Hotel.  The hotel provided some shelter and respite to four travellers at the start of the adventure.

The team was increased when Ian and Henry joined us.
The plan for the weekend was Mullach Buidhe on the east side of Arran. 

We were blessed with beautiful sunshine the whole weekend with no midges which was an added bonus especially when sleeping under canvass!!

For a change the members headed to the west side of the Island and climbed  Mullach Buidhe which was a superb ridge walk.  The views were breathtaking, looking over onto the Paps of Jura, Islay  and of course views of the many peaks and ridges on the island itself. Arran is not just about Goatfell it has so much to offer and being an Ayrshire mountaineering club, members are very fortunate to have Arran on their doorstep.
