Arran Art Trail
The year-round Arran Art Trail evolved from the hugely successful annual Arran Open Studios weekend and launched in April 2017.
We provide both visitors and local people with the opportunity to visit practicing artists and craftspeople in their studios to gain some insight into how they work, as well as what inspires them. Welcoming visitors in also helps assist artists and craftspeople on the island in maintaining a sustainable livelihood.
Arran has a wealth of creative talent, often hidden to the public, and through the Arran Art Trail we hope to create an artistic journey through our dramatic landscape. To find our artists, look out for small studio signs of our logo directing visitors to undiscovered places, some with spectacular views.
