Sannox to Lochranza: Cock of Arran

The second stage of the Arran Coastal Way - a great linear walk in its own right - is regarded as one of the finest of the route. It sticks close to a remote section of Arran's shore, with lovely views across the water to the Isle of Bute and Ayrshire. After passing the cottage at Laggan (where a steep inland alternative climbs the hill before descending to Lochranza) the route becomes rocky and boggy in places before passing the Cock of Arran. Finally an easier section of path and road lead into Lochranza with good views of the castle.

Terrain

After Laggan Cottage the route becomes rocky and wet underfoot in places, easy rocky scrambling over boulders at An Scriodan.
