We are an American family who are living in Glasgow for a year. We are trying to see as much of Scotland before we leave. Last night my husband decided that we should go to Arran for the weekend. So now I am trying to research everything I need to know, but I seem to be getting confused (which is easy for me to do)! Is there more than one ferry to Arran? If so, where is the best place to catch it? Also, should we bring our car? We have two kids with us, a 4 & 6 year old. I hear the bus system is great, but do they go to most of the "touristy" places? We are also thinking of staying in one the the youth hostels. Is there one that is more central than the other. What are the major "to do" things, keeping in mind that we will have kids with us? Any other suggestions or information would be great!
