Brodick (Scottish Gaelic: Breadhaig) is the main village on the Isle of Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. It is set on the eastern coast of the island, roughly in the central section. It sits below Goat Fell, the tallest mountain on Arran, and in Brodick Bay. The name is derived from Norse roots meaning "Broad Bay".

Features include the harbour which receives the main connecting ferry with the mainland which sails to Ardrossan, and Brodick Castle, a former residence of the Dukes of Hamilton.

[edit] Tourism

Brodick is a popular holiday destination and tourism provides much of the village's economic base. There are many family-owned and independent businesses, such as shops, bed and breakfast establishments, guest houses and outdoor activities. As well as several of the island's busiest hotels, it has both Chinese & Italian restaurants.
It has the island's main ferry terminus ( a second, smaller ferry runs from Lochranza) which connects Brodick to Ardrossan and then the national rail network. The ferries are operated by Caledonian MacBrayne. The MV Caledonian Isles plies this route. The journey generally takes less than 1 hour.

To tempt the tourist and in addition to mountain-walking of the highest quality, the village offers:

  • Arran Brewery, situated in Cladach. It produces Arran Blonde beer, alongside other premium ales which are sold throughout the UK.
  • Arran Aromatics. It produces a range of toiletries on site which are sold throughout the UK[4]
  • Auchrannie Resort. 2 hotels, 3 restaurants and 2 lesiure complex, one of biggest employers on island[5]
  • Creelers, adjacent to Arran Aromatics. A seafood restaurant with locations in Arran and Edinburgh[6]
  • A Pitch and putt course.


The Paddle Steamer Waverley lies in Brodick Bay in front of Brodick Castle, waiting for the car ferry to leave before returning to the pier.
