welcome to the beautiful island of arran

The Arran Trust is the island's visitor gifting scheme. The Trust funds projects which look after the beautiful landscapes and environment of Arran. With your help, the Trust can work alongside businesses and community groups to improve sustainable practices and aims to safeguard the future of this beautiful island.

Whether you are a business owner who would like to get involved with the Trust, an island visitor who would like to donate to the Trust or a community group who would like to apply for a grant, we would like to hear from you!

As our good friend Billy Connolly says:

"The Isle of Arran is the true Gem of the Clyde. Loved by the residents, and adored by visitors, it is truly a miniature Scotland."



Our membership is made up of a large number of hotels and guest houses of all sizes, caravan parks, holiday cottage companies and a broad spread of Island businesses.
