On deciding to walk the Arran Coastal Way I have endeavoured to make fellow walkers aware of the real ale drinking establishments, and otherwise, that we encountered during our journey.

1. En route to Ardrossan, on 29/04/18, we briefly visited the Sorn Inn at Sorn which is GBG 2018 listed. They had Orkney Raven Ale, which was very pleasant. In Brodick we visited the Ormidale Hotel, also GBG 2018 listed. They were serving Arran Best Bitter and Arran Blonde, both at ?4.40 per pint. Excellent.

2. 30/04/18. The Lochranza Hotel had Caledonian Golden IPA. On good form.

3. 01/05/18. Blackwaterfoot Lodge had Fyne Ales, Maverick, on handpull. Magnificent and a very keen owner. The GBG 2018 listed Kinloch Bar had Uisge Dubh Ale (brewed for the bar) at 3.8% and Fair Jenny's Jig at 4.4%.

4. 02/05/18. No real ale at the Lagg Hotel. There was keg Arran Blonde at ?5-90 a pint.

5. 03/05/18. Felicity's at Eden Lodge. No real ale. Harviestoun Bitter and Twisted in 330ml bottles. Schiehallion keg draught. Very gassy and cold.

6. 04/05/18. Pierhead Tavern in Lamlash, also GBG 2018 listed. Excellent. 3 handpulls. Skye Red at 4.2%, Fynefest at 4.3% and Arran Sunset at 4.4%. If only we'd had longer  Grin.
