North Ayrshire

Situated 13 miles (21 km) northwest of Brodick on the island of Arran, situated in the Firth of Clyde in North Ayrshire, the small village of Lochranza includes the ruins of a 13th-century castle where Robert the Bruce (1274 - 1329) stayed in 1306 after his time on the island of Rathlin. The village is popular with islanders and tourists for bathing and fishing.

The Highland Boundary Fault runs to the northeast of the village, revealing a disjunction between the rock units, one of the most famous of the three unconformities discovered by James Hutton (1726-97).
