You've missed the boat , I mean ferry. It's middle of November now.
They call Arran "Scotland in miniature" as it has a mountain range , lowlands , etc..Not a huge amount to do unless you golf , fish , read , knit , but I still like it . I think there are three sites and various places to overnight. Never been over in the van , but ferry very reasonable due to Road Equivalent Tariff. On my to do list though.
Been a couple of weekends golfing , but in a hotel.
No midges at this time of year and fewer tourists.
You can get a ferry from the "back" of the island to Kintyre area which is worth a visit.
If you decide to go I hope you enjoy it .

Since 2008 after caravanning for 20 years
We were there for a couple of nights last month, lucky with the weather, no rain, cool and sunny. If you do go be aware that the road round the southern end of the island is a bit tight in places. Recommend the distillery cafe for coffee or a meal in Lochranza.
