Fantastic walk along the cliffs and then down to the shingle beach to the caves. Moderate walk! Kings cave was great loved being able to go inside and view the carvings on the walls. Loved the addition of the spider and web that has been left on the caged entrance. We nearly missed it so keep an eye out. You... More

Quite a difficult walk from blackwaterfoot but definitely worth it. Started walking along the shoreline, with spectacular views over to kintyre. Then a long stretch scrabbling through rocks. Finally walking through grassy area before returning to shore to see the caves themselves. Amazing scenery throughout but we walked really fast on the return trip as it was getting late and... More

Worth a trip , we left from the golf course over the fields following the clear signs for Kings Cave. We returned via the shoreline where the path is surprisingly good.

Great walk along the coast and well worth the short, and fairly easy walk. Parked in blackwaterfoot and walked along the beach to get to the start of the coastal route.

Great rocky walk through the golf course helped stimulate my appetite. Views of Kintyre are magnificent.Best to watch out for golfers and midges. Not one for your best clothes.

This round trip walk starts at a carpark marked for the kings cave. It took us about 40 mins to reach the caves . It is a steep narrow walk down when you are near the caves so not for anyone elderly or with walking difficulties and would be a problem for buggies. there are quite afew caves but the... More

This walk is longer than first seems and full of midges and horseflys all the way along the route. Is quiet steep at places and at times can lose your footing. Interesting caves with markings inside, route clearly visible as many have walked this.
