Views were absolutely amazing at the top of here. Path was well sign posted and easy to follow however we did it on a very fine and clear day.

I climbed Goatfell from Corrie and then back to Brodick. Took about 4 hours round trip. Luckily it was a warm and sunny day so the views were amazing from the summit. Recommend being physically fit and wearing proper hiking boots or trail shoes as...More

We opted for this high level option on day 1 of 4 walking the Arran Coastal Path on a lovely sunny day. This had brought out quite a few walkers, including a large group of young children who made light of the challenging climb. It...More

Goat Fell comes on your first day of the around the island coast route, so you go up from Brodick and come down to Corrie. OK if you own a pair of young knees, but really tough on old ones coming down. It works much...More

Went up from Corrie via North Goatfell. Path extremely well-defined. Very windy on the ridge, but that added to the excitement. Down via the path to Brodick Castle: will be lovely in the rhododendron season.

The route we took from the Freeport by Brodick castle took us two and a half hours to the top and certainly stretched some sinews. We returned via Corrie, it would have been easier doing the route in reverse. Good walking boots are essential, but...More
