Goatfell

A wild, rugged landscape with spectacular views

  • At 874m (2,867ft), Goat Fell is a favourite destination for hill walkers and climbers.

  • Venture into this dramatic and challenging upland landscape for panoramic vistas.

  • Look out for buzzards and golden eagles soaring high in the sky.

  • Discover the abundance of flora and fauna here – from dwarf juniper and sweet-scented heather to tiger beetles and emperor moths. 

A hearty climb into the wilderness, Goat Fell is the highest peak on the Isle of Arran, and the perfect viewpoint to gaze across the island and out to sea.

The mountain stands sentinel above Brodick Castle and reaching the summit takes between 2 and 5 hours, so pack plenty of supplies and make sure you are properly equipped. But we think the views of Jura and Ben Lomond are worth it – on a clear day you can even see as far as Ireland.

The Goatfell property also includes 2,400ha of mountains and moorland including Glen Rosa, a spectacular example of a landscape shaped by glaciers.
