All reviews free entry well worth a visit isle of arran next door seafood kilbrannan sound parking area sunny day great views from the top worth a stop short walk smoke house historic scotland run around spiral staircase coastal road roof

Skipness Castle would be easy to miss unless you are taking the ferry to Lochranza, Isle of Arran. But it's well worth arriving early for the ferry and allowing time to meander down the attractive coastal road to Skipness where you find a castle and...More
Skipness Castle looks over the Kilbrannan Sound to Arran. On a sunny day, it’s a stunning view. There’s not a lot to see really but there’s also the Seafood Cabin and shop on site to its worth a visit and a wander around.

Skipness was my favorite castle. We walked in from the ferry. As we approached the area I could feel the history of it. It is also along the Kintyre Way, which is a 100 mile walking stretch. We ended up in the sweet town of...More
I had been walking from Tarbert to Skipness and some spare time before my bus would drive, so I explored the castle. You can climb up the tower, right to the top and enjoy the view. There are a few informative signs about the history...More
