Lochranza: Paul Johnstone 1956 – 2016

The ruined castle on its grassy promontory and the steep slopes of the mountains make Lochranza one of the most spectacularly sited villages on Arran.  The sheltered valley follows the river down to the sea where seals and waders can be spotted.  Walk around the coast and you will find a collection of memorial benches.  The weather was as good as it gets when we were there and we saw Arran at its best.

This memorial bench is placed perfectly to give anyone who chooses to rest on its slats a wonderful view across the loch to the village of Lochranza.  The bench remembers Paul Johnstone who died at the young age of 63 or 64.  The inscription says that he is, ‘Forever in our hearts’ and ‘Loved and remembered everyday.’
