“lovely coastal walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

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

“Best short walk on The Isle of Arran”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

As we live about three miles from the Kings cave walk, we frequently do this walk, as it can be done in about one hour, It has everything in this walk from the pine forest, beach, caves and amazing scenery overlooking the Kintyre peninsular and on a clear day Northern Island. Trainers are needed as some of the paths are uneven, We have seen Otters on the shore, dolphins and basking sharks close to the shore, and red squirrels are found in the pine forests.
