Snow Capped Mountain
I had to drop my car into the garage yesterday to have a service done and to get the clutch checked (ouch, I think that may cost some money). I left the garage and took a walk home, I brought my camera with me as it was an ok day for a change. The walk home only usually takes about half an hour, but it ended up taking me an hour- I blame the camera lol.
I walked back via the beach and the snow capped mountains of Arran was looking stunning so I had to take a picture to show you.
The profile of the island is also referred to as the 'Sleeping Warrior' due to its resemblance to a resting human figure. I had never noticed that before until we were coming back from a holiday a couple of years ago. We were coming back over in the ferry and the profile really did look like a sleeping warrior.
The highest point in Arran is a mountain called Goatfell which is a popular place for people to visit - we didn't climb it though. It reaches up to 2,866 feet. The name Goatfell is believed to mean either 'Mountain of Wind' (from the Gaelic gaoth) or 'Goat Mountain' (from the Norse geita).
So there you a few interesting facts on Arran.
