This evening, I am reporting on one of Scotland’s top ranking prehistoric stone circles, namely Callanish I on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
This evening, I am posting information on the village of Lochranza, a pretty village in a scenic location on the northern tip of the Isle of Arran which in turn lies off the West Coast of Scotland. Here is a diversity of experiences including geology, prehistory, a castle, flora, whisky making, deer, golf and beautiful shoreline scenery. All of this in a relatively compact area.
This evening, I am focusing on Brodick, principal town on the Isle of Arran. The name ‘Brodick’ is derived from the Old Norse for broad bay and points to the period up to the mid-13th century when large tracts of the West of Scotland were under Norwegian control.
