Location & Travel
The Isle of Arran is known as “Scotland in Miniature,” with more than 60 miles of rugged coastline, lowland marsh, soaring peaks, historic ruins and seemingly endless gravel roads. Arran has also become one of the UK’s major trail riding destinations, with trails ranging from steep and technical to fast and flowing. In other words, it’s the perfect location to host the Grinduro.
The Grinduro experience begins at the port of Ardrossan, which is close to major road networks and less than an hours drive from Glasgow. But why not leave the car at home? The port of Ardrossan is also easily accessible by train, with its own train station offering connections from Glasgow rail stations every hour. Glasgow also offers an international airport, making travels easy and stress-free if you’re coming from a distance.
Arran is only accessible by ferry and inclusive in the entry is return travel as a foot passenger and secure parking for your vehicle at the ferry terminal. Bikes and luggage will be transported by the event allowing you a relaxing sea crossing and a chance to ease in to the Grinduro weekend. When arriving on Arran you will be transported to the event village and reunited with your bike and bags.
We’re offering free camping at the Grinduro site in Lamlash (see below), but if you’d rather stay in a hotel, you can find options here.
