About Us

Arran Active Ltd is based on the beautiful Isle of Arran in Scotland, a breath-taking small Island on the west coast known across the UK as ‘Scotland in Miniature’. Easily found on Brodick sea front and only a minutes stroll from the ferry terminal.

As the Islands largest outdoor clothing and equipment supplier we are delighted to stock a broad range of products including technical equipment for mountaineering, hiking, camping, casual fashion, toys and local souvenirs. We hold stock from major brands such as Rab, Crag Hoppers, Mountain Equipment, Regatta, The North Face, Osprey and many more. We also sell more formal and casual clothes from brands such as Hoggs of Fife and Rieker. If your looking for something more local we also stock a wide range of products from both local causes and business’s such as Arran Mountain Rescue, C.O.A.S.T, Arran Whiskey and Arran Gin.

Our Heritage:

Arran Active is owned by Andrew and Juliette Walsh who moved to Arran in 2005 to run a small outdoor shop based in Cladach Visitor Centre at the foot of Goatfell. Demand for outdoor sports equipment on the island grew over the years and, in 2016, we moved to our new large premises on Brodick seafront.

To this day our business remains a family-owned, community-facing, truly independent supplier of outdoor equipment for locals and visitors.

Our Team:

We’re proud to have a great team of friendly and knowledgeable locals who will be delighted to help you during your visit. All of our team live on Arran and have a passion for the outdoors; they will be happy to share their own experiences and as well as offer product advice across our ever increasing range.

You are also likely to meet our owner Andrew and manager Lisa when in store – so no matter what your need you’ll be sure to get the best advice from the team when you visit or contact us.
