Hello everyone! Unfortunately on day 4 we were not graced with very good weather! It was a bit drizzly and misty. As we were driving over some of the roads we actually found ourselves driving through mist, it almost felt like we were driving through the clouds! Me, my mum and my gran visited the east side of the island on a trip to Lamlash and Whiting Bay. I wanted to visit Lamlash as I'd just finished reading The Legacy Of Elizabeth Pringle by Kirsty Wark which is actually set in Lamlash. It is such a lovely little part of the island but I wish I could have seen it on a nice day. You can look out across the bay to Holy Isle. This is a really small island that is very close to Arran. There is even a Buddhist monastery there! Its also Scotland's only 'no take zone'. This means that its illegal to remove any sea life from this area meaning the marine life here is left alone to grow and develop in a natural way, very important!
From here we travelled to Whiting Bay for a spot of lunch. We went to a restaurant called Coast, my mum went for dinner there the last time we visited Arran and she really enjoyed it. I had a brie and cranberry panini, my mum had a bowl of chilli beef nachos and my gran had the tart of the day. Me and my mum ended up sharing the nachos and the panini as they were so tasty. I didn't take any photos of the food on my camera but I did instagram the nachos if you want to take a look on my Instagram. The weather wasn't very good so from here we just went home. It was really nice to get out for a bit and explore a part of the island I was unfamiliar with.
