As previously mentioned, there are some forestry works in place at the moment which should not have been an issue, but mixed signals saying "diversion" and "road close" next to each other made it difficult to follow the right path. Ending up walking for more...More

Arrived at the beginning of the walk to find that our planned trip couldn’t happen! Agree that forewarning would have been nice but I’m wondering exactly where previous reviewers would have seen these notices?? From our original planned start we could only see the giants...More

I had carefully planned enough time for us to do this walk before getting the ferry back (the walk length varies, around 3-6 miles depending on path route). We chose this walk as the distance and duration was right for our family of 3. But...More

Best waterfall in Scotland? First time there and it was a great experience. March 2019 in a rainy day with lots of water. Impressive place!

Couldn't see the falls. Footpath closed due to forestry commission felling. No warning when we started the walk or in the website. Really unfortunate as we had come a long way and couldn't enjoy it.

Set overlooking The Holy Isle and Whiting Bay, the Glenashdale Falls are probably the best on Arran. As most people will vouch, they are most spectacular after or during prolonged spells of rain so February is as good a month as any in the winter...More

This is a not-too-strenous walk with a lot of variety. On the circular route you will see waterfalls, an iron age settlement and neolithic burial mounds. Round if off with a lunch or a drink in the Coffee Pot. We parked near the Coffee Pot,...More

I believe you can go to the bottom of the falls. On the day we were there it was raining so I don’t know where the sun falls. But it was so pretty and. We loved it.

Yes it is but keep it on a lead near the falls as there is a huge drop. The forest walk around tge area is great too but caution with Arrans Adders as they are protected.
