Why should I go walking at King's Caves on the Isle of Arran?

The trails found here make for a superb coastal walk visiting a series of caves sculpted in the sandstone cliffs.

The Historic King’s Cave is one of several locations in which Robert the Bruce is said to have had his famous encounter with a spider!

From Blackwaterfoot you can venture along the beach and through the clever boulder-field path that is a part of Arran Coastal Way. Alternatively, you can start at the clearly marked forestry car park between Blackwaterfoot and Machrie, which offers a circular route back to the same car park – or join onto the shoreline back to Blackwaterfoot. There is also a bus that runs along the A841 to shorten the walk slightly!

  • Appropriate footwear is recommended
  • Lasts roughly 1 and a half hours
  • 5km of trail in total
