Lamlash is the largest village by population on the Isle of
Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. It lies 4 miles to the south
of ferry port Brodick, in a sheltered bay on the island's east
coast, facing Holy Isle. Lamlash is the seat of Arran's local
government offices and police. The only secondary school and only
hospital in Arran are also located in Lamlash.
A prehistoric ring of stones indicates that an ancient settlement
has existed near Lamlash since antiquity. The name Lamlash dates
back to the 6th Century hermitage of Saint Molaise a Celtic monk
born in Ireland but raised in Scotland, who in c.590 spent some time
in a cave on the neighbouring Holy Island. Commonly known as MoLaise
the Gaelic name of Holy Island was, as a result, Eilean MoLaise.
This gradually evolved through Elmolaise and Lemolash to Lamlash,
which is what Holy Island was called until early in the 19th
