Lochranza to Imachar

The third stage of the Arran Coastal Way begins from Lochranza, and follows the old postie's footpath through the birchwoods high above the road. It then descends to the hamlet of Catacol and its inn, before a long but quiet section round the coast road to Pirnmill village. From here there is a final very rugged jaunt along the coastline away from the road, which is rejoined at Imachar.

Terrain

The Postie's path is muddy and rough in places; it is followed by a long road section. The coastal stretch to Imachar has awkward going over pathless shoreline boulders but later improves.

Public Transport

Bus runs along the A841 linking Lochranza, Catacol, Pirnmill and past Imachar. Traveline Scotland.
