Goatfell, Arran, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on the spectacular mountain of Goatfell on the Isle of Arran in the West of Scotland.

Goatfell rises to a hight of 873 metres (2910 feet) and is located in the rugged and elevated northern section of the island. Here there is an abundance of Alpine forms which produce a spectacular landscape.The geology comprises Tertiary granites surrounded by pre-Cambrian schists with granites forming the higher ground.

Goatfell is popular with climbers and is actually owned by heritage organisation, National Trust for Scotland.
