isle of arran coastal way
« on: 21:08:25, 13/09/20 »
hi has anyone done this walk? how is the terrain? im just wondering why www.scotlandsgreattrails.com has the coastal walk as being longer number of days compared to WHW when the kilometers and ascent is significantly less
i would have thought the arran walk would be more like 4-6 days i was thinking i could do this in 4 and a half if i do about 25kms a day
west highland way-Distance 154 (km) ascent 3155m days 5-8
arran coastal way-Distance107 (km) ascent  390m    days  6-8

Have a look at the Walkhighlands site - covers it in more detail.

Ruth Livingstone, as an addition to her coastal walk around the mainland, spent some time walking round Arran. Here's a link to the relevant section of her blog

So many paths, so little time
