Routes to Arran

By sea

Arran is one of the most accessible of the Scottish islands, with a regular ferry service from Ardrossan on the Scottish West coast, which is itself just an hour from Glasgow. The crossing to Brodick takes 55 minutes. Check-in is 30 minutes before sailing and it is recommended that you book your crossing in advance as the ferry is often full, particularly in high season.

During the Summer you can also sail from Claonaig near Skipness on the east coast of Kintyre, to Lochranza in the north of the Island and the non-bookable crossing takes only 30 minutes.

For the latest ferry timetables and bookings to and from Arran, please consult Caledonian MacBraynes website.

By air

Regular train services to Ardrossan are available from both Prestwick and Glasgow airports. At Glasgow Airport, a shuttle bus links to train services leaving from Paisley Gilmour Street bound for Ardrossan Harbour. Glasgow Prestwick Airport has its own rail station with services linking to Ardrossan Harbour.

By train

There is a direct train service to Ardrossan Harbour from Glasgow Central station, which connects with the ferry.

Getting to Corrie

Corrie is a 12 minute drive from the ferry terminal at Brodick, or is on the main bus routes around the island.
Full directions will be sent when you book.


Rockview Cottage is at the northern end of the village and is accessible by foot only. The cottage is located in the Corrie conservation area, close to the sea with a cluster of other historic cottages, so very few properties have dedicated parking. Visitors park by the coast and walk up the footpath: this is part of the charm of the cottage as it takes just moments and means that Rockview is tucked away off the main road. If you are concerned about the timing and terrain here is a video of the walk up:
