Sannox

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  Scotland  /  Isle of Arran  /  Sannox
Sannox is a village on the Isle of Arran, Scotland. The village is within the parish of Kilbride. The name comes from the name the Vikings gave to the area, Sandvik, meaning the Sandy Bay.HistoryWithin Glen Sannox it is possible to find an Iron Age fort and the remains of a village, abandoned in 1829 as part of the process of the Highland clearances. Most of the inhabitants of this village emigrated to Canada where they built a replica of the church that was constructed in Sannox in 1822.Mining was a source of employment in the area, when in 1840 a mine was opened in the area. However operations only lasted around two decades. Operations ended when in 1862 the 11th Duke of Hamilton closed the mine, claiming that it spoiled the local area. However, the mine was reopened after the close of the First World War, and a railway and pier were built to transport the barytes that was mined there.The source of barytes ran out in 1938 and the mine closed. The railway and pier were removed in the 1940s.GeographySannox sits on the east coast of the Isle of Arran, with a stunning backdrop of scenery in the shape of Glen Sannox.CommunitySannox is the location of the Corrie Golf Club, a nine hole golf course, named after the locally-twinned village of Corrie. It has a few guest houses/B&Bs, as well as the Sannox Bay hotel and restaurant. It is also the location of Sannox Cricket Club.
