When the Jehovah’s Witnesses came to my door and asked me if I would like to live in Paradise, I replied I already had lived in Paradise. Paradise to me is a small island off the West coast of Scotland – Arran.
Arran is a 1.05 hour train journey to Ardrossan and an hour’s ferry crossing to Brodick. This island is very dear to me as my ancestors came from crofting communities in the mid 18th century to find work in the heavy engineering industries in Glasgow and Motherwell.

Goat Fell in the largest mountain on Arran. It is quite a hard climb but some fit people can run up the hill and back!
We all have a paradise. Where’s your paradise?
