Glen Rosa is one of Scotland’s most attractive glens. It runs north-west from Brodick, on the Island of Arran, before turning north. Small trout abound in the clear waters of the little river Rosa and no roadway mars the perfection of its setting. The wide valley mouth above Brodick is graced on its northern face by Brodick Castle. It was once stormed by the armies of Robert the Bruce and he later used it as a base for the mainland campaign which terminated at Bannockburn in 1314.
