Local seafood and produce

There are only a few local fishermen based on Arran and they mainly dive for scallops or creel for lobsters, crabs and prawns (like the Julie-Anne in Lamlash Bay). Often their catches are sold to local restaurants such as the Drift Inn in Lamlash or Mara in Corrie.

Look out for Woodside Farm’s locally grown organic vegetables, fruit, eggs and meat – online, delivered or at their mobile shop- and Robin’s herbs which are grown right by the sea, using seaweed as a fertiliser. Arran gin, cheese, whisky, ice cream, and much more (see Taste of Arran) can be purchased on the island from local producers.
