Tour Island of Arran, Scotland, from the Kilmichael Country House Hotel. This is believed to be the oldest house on the isle of Arran. It is certainly among the richest in its historic associations. Situated at the heart of grounds granted to the forebears of its builders by King Robert the Bruce in 1307, it occupies a spot known to have been inhabited long before that, indeed the name Kilmichael indicates the site of one of the earliest Christian missionary cells, dedicated to St. Michael.
