Goat Fell - Wintry Hike in May

Date walked: 12/05/2021

Goat Fell and the A'Chir Mhore Ridge on the Isle of Arran (Scotland) was the initial plan, however the weather forecast changed and the ferry tickets were already booked and we decided to give it a go anyway - who knows if the forecast is right? It was!

We changed our initial plan according to the wintry conditions: snow fall, high winds and a windchill of around -10 degreee celsius and just hiked up to Goat Fell. The path is perfectly market, layed out with big rocks and it feels via the tourist route more like a walk then a hill hike.


That was for sure not the last visit to the Isle of Arran ;-)
