Lamlash, Isle of Arran

Lamlash is the secondary village (after Brodick) on Arran. It is located on the southern half of the island, some three miles to the south of Brodick and five miles to the north of Whiting Bay, and sits on a bay in which the Holy Isle is located.

The Holy Isle owned by the Samye Ling Buddhist Community, who belong to the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. The settlements on the island include the Centre for World Peace and Health, founded by Lama Yeshe Losal, on the north of the island. This is an environmentally designed residential centre for courses and retreats which extends the former farm house. It has solar water heating and a reed-bed sewage treatment system. The approach from the ferry jetty is decorated with Tibetan flags and stupas.

There is a regular ferry service from Lamlash, and the island is popular with holiday makers staying on Arran.

Lamlash Bay served as a naval anchorage during the First World War, and relics of that time are still visible.

The sailing emphasis is obvious from any walk along the shore in Lamlash. The bay itself is home to many moored boats.
