A view from Brodick across Brodick Bay and Merkland Wood towards Goatfell, which is one of the 4 ‘Corbetts’ on the Isle of Arran. The origin of the name ‘Goat Fell’ is taken either from the Norse ‘geita’ for goat, and ‘field’ for mountain or fell, or the Gaelic ‘Gaoithbheinn’ – Mountain of the Wind. With the sky changing and a storm approaching ‘Mountain of the Wind’ does seem more appropriate.
