You are invited to join us on Saturday 14 January 2017 for our popular New Year excursion to Arran.
A major attraction this time is the chance to do the return Ardrossan-Brodick sailing on Hebridean Isles, a rare visitor to the Clyde and now making her debut on the Arran run.
The excursion price includes lunch at the 2015 ‘Scottish Hotel of the Year’ Auchrannie Resort, and we have also lined up a bus tour of the south of the island.
Everyone is welcome on this special excursion, traditionally one of the most convivial occasions in the CRSC calendar. Book now to avoid disappointment.
Hebridean Isles’ only previous visit to Brodick was on 29 August 2002, during a rare break from her duties on the Islay run. She waited in the bay until Caledonian Isles (left) departed the pier — copyright photo Andrew Clark
