Isle of Arran – Ailsa Craig
The foreground island is called Pladda and the island on the skyline is Ailsa Craig which is merely 240 acres in the outer Firth of Clyde, 10 miles west of mainland Scotland. Blue hone granite has long been quarried here to make curling stones. The now uninhabited island is formed from the volcanic plug of an extinct volcano. More pictures of Arran by Mobscooter...
