Corrie caves

Arran | Corrie | Caves | ★★

[One of the Corrie caves]

Corrie is a straggling coastal village over a mile in length on the coast road between Brodick and Lochranza. It's easy to drive through without stopping, but if you've time to spare, there are a number of caves worth inspecting just uphill from the northernmost of the two harbours. The rock face here used to be quarried for limestone, and were later used as shelters for boat building before falling into disuse. Some of the caves are a decent size but there's no guarantee of roof stability if you venture inside.
