Blakey to Egton Bridge

Lynne describes her final day on Arran as ‘soggy’. Lynne and Jon arrived in Brodick on Friday afternoon very, very wet but having had an enjoyable day nevertheless, and we’re told they enjoyed some brightness first thing to spur them on their way.

Lagg to Whiting Bay

The penultimate day on the Arran Coastal Path dawned wet for Lynne and Jon. They prepared themselves for a soaking, as they headed off from Lagg in the direction of Whiting Bay, and it did indeed happen. Not once, but twice.

Blackwaterfoot to Lagg

After a long day on Tuesday, Wednesday’s walk from Blackwaterfoot to Lagg was a much shorter one for Lynne and Jon at just 8 miles.
