Biking on a budget
Cycling is a great way of getting out there at low cost. OS champion Anna Hughes recently undertook a cycling adventure for less than £50, including transit, accommodation and food. Here’s how she did it.
Captured several years ago, this photograph of low-lying fog was taken from the trig point on Sheeans, looking towards Goatfell on Arran.
The Isle of Arran has a huge variety of landscapes from peaceful wooded valleys to the rocky slopes of Goatfell, with a peak at 874m. It's a popular destination for photographers, walkers and wildlife spotters, drawing visitors from across the world. It was even featured on one of the OS picnic rugs! Near to where this photo was taken you will find Brodick Castle, which features on the back of the Scottish £20 note, and has a long an complex history, changing hands repeatedly over time.
