High Corrie

North Ayrshire

A small settlement located on the slopes above the village of Corrie on the Isle of Arran in North Ayrshire. It comprises a group of whitewashed cottages lying next to the High Corrie Burn on the path leading to Goatfell, with remarkable views out to the Firth of Clyde. High Corrie was home to playwright Robert McLellan (1907-85), John Maclauchlan Milne (1886 - 1957) and journalist Alastair Hetherington (1919-99), who later became controller of BBC Scotland. During the summer months it attracted other notables, such as artist Jessie M. King (1875 - 1949) and museum administrator and broadcaster Ian Finlay (1906 - 1995).
