For Geographers and Geologists the Isle of Arran needs no introduction. It is one of the finest locations for field work in Europe. Lochranza and the Field Centre are ideally situated to take full advantage of the variety of landscapes that the island has to offer. Arran offers a wealth of notable landscape features from spectacular glacial peaks down to cliffs and caves of the raised coastline.
You will have the opportunity to participate in a residential field trip to the Isle of Arran while you are studying at the College.
