On Friday 23rd October 2020 the staff team completed the Three Lochs Adventure! This saw us walk and paddle the three inland lochs on the west side of Arran - Coire-Fhionn Lochan, Loch Tanna and Loch Iorsa. A touch wet underfoot, but we made it! This unique challenge was designed to raise funds to help the Centre get through the Covid-19 crisis and on to a positive future. We want to be here to keep doing what we love and indeed what our guests enjoy most when they are with us - getting out and about on our fantastic island. Your support continues to be massively appreciated. To see some pictures from the day, take a look on Instagram or Facebook.
