The caves are well worth a visit and the walk to them is very pleasant. It's possible to do it as a circular walk which always makes things more interesting. In the event we walked on to Machrie, had a delicious meal in the café at the golf club and took the bus back to Blackwaterfoot.

Very pleasant walk, mainly through Forestry Commission forest on to Seashore which is a good site for lunch if you have taken it with you. Interesting cave with some markings.

Expected to find pirates remnants in the caves, alas none to be found in these vast caves. If parking a car at the car-park off the main road take the path to the right as it is less strenuous, we met an old couple struggling over the top of the hill, when they could more easily walk around it.

This was our first walk we did on the Sunday our first full day on Arran, it has to be said I am not much of a walker unless on flat ground but I managed this walk well. We took the route to the right if the car park thinking since it was raining we could head to see caves... More

The caves are great and the walk from the car park off the main road is lovely. Forrest, cliff and beach all rolled into a fab little walk.

Peaceful and quiet with a fabulous view and a not too difficult walk. Easy to access either by foot or car.

We walked here from the car park on the roadside and not along the shore which would not have the ascent and descent but well worth a visit.

Make sure you park in the Forestry Commission car parks and do a loop rather than start at Blackwaterfoot! We had to walk back along the road... our fault though! Saw a seal up close on the beach, basking in the sunshine. The caves are pretty impressive - the wildlife even more so!

really enjoyed walking out to the kings caves, taking in the views and wildlife, the caves are large and worth seeing the footpath leads you up the cliff and along the edge of a plantation then back out onto the main (quiet) road
