“The Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST) is a community-led organisation that has made a huge difference to the conservation and restoration of the seas around Arran and the Clyde for the past 25 years. We stand for a diverse, abundant and beautiful marine environment for everyone.”
A new snorkel trail featuring some of Arran’s most beautiful bays and beaches was launched on Saturday 17th July. The self-led trail identifies areas for beginner and advanced snorkellers to explore all around Arran’s coast and discover what lies beneath the island’s waves.
COAST Summer News
As we celebrate a quarter century of COAST, we look forward to the possibilities of recovery, not just conservation, of our National inshore waters. We continue to spread the marine conservation word far and wide, look forward to welcoming you onto events this summer and having marine researchers in our seas once again.
We recently received a very generous donation from Dr Allan, which in part was comprised from bequests from his father’s cousin, the late Alan Tod. Dr Allan donated this money due to his and Alan’s life-long attachment to Arran – including many happy holidays fishing in Lamlash Bay.
