Arran ferry advice.

So to my question.... would you suggest i book the ferry or just arrive and hope to get on.
We dont know an exact date yet, and thought we could keep our options more flexable if we just arrived and hoped !

I used it last year in preference to the Ardrossan ferry - but I did start from Glen Etive and go back via Islay.

It is a small(ish) island, and from recollection the busses are ok. You could also hire bikes if basing yourself in Brodick and day-walking.
From recollection the last time we went the ferry fare for myself and wife with car was comparable to a couple of nights hotel stay. OK, it was a special offer, but still!
