Goatfell, from Brodick Castle
A fine pyramidal peak and a magnificent viewpoint, Goatfell is the highest of the mountains on Arran and the culminating point of some dramatic granite ridges. This is the most popular and straightforward route of ascent.
Good footpaths for most of the route; the final section weaves steeply up through granite boulders to the summit.
