Below are details of the split and the amount of money generated annually by their subscriptions.A BRIEF VIEW OF ACTIVITIES ON ARRAN.BRODICK CASTLEA stronghold of some kind has occupied this site since the fifth century, when an ancient Irish tribe came over and founded the kingdom of Dalriada. It was probably destroyed and rebuilt many times during its turbulent history. In 1503 James IV granted the castle and the Earldom of Arran to his cousin, Lord Hamilton. That structure was demolished in 1544.

It is also home to the art collection of 18th century author William Beckford of Fonthill whose daughter married the 10th Duke of Hamilton. One of the rooms is known as 'Bruce's Room' but since the castle was all but destroyed in 1455 and 1544, it is unlikely that Robert the Bruce actually stayed in it.
