Old Photograph Putting Green Brodick Island Of Arran Scotland


Old photograph of the Putting Green in Brodick on the Isle of Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. Brodick is halfway along the east coast of the island, in Brodick Bay below Goat Fell, the tallest mountain on Arran. The name is derived from Norse roots meaning " Broad Bay ". The harbour receives the main ferry between Arran and the mainland via Ardrossan. Brodick Castle is a former residence of the Dukes of Hamilton. Brodick is one of the largest town on the island and is seen as the main hub due to the ferry terminal which connects the island to the mainland. The town is host to many homes, hotels and shops, the health centre, nursing home, heritage museum, tourist information centre, Brodick Castle, and a public beach and park.



Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Brodick on the Isle of Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. Brodick Castle was the seat of Dukes of Hamilton. The older part of this Scottish castle is said to be haunted by a Grey Lady who starved to death in the dungeons of the castle because she had the plague. A man has been reportedly seen sitting in the library and a White Deer is reputedly seen in the grounds of the castle whenever a chief of the Hamiltons is close to death. Brodick has the Isle of Arran's main ferry terminus which connects Brodick to Ardrossan on the mainland. The ferries are operated by Caledonian MacBrayne. MV Caledonian Isles plies this route year-round, with MV Isle of Arran providing additional sailings during the summer. Brodick is a popular holiday destination and a base for hill walking. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
