King's Cave


King's Cave


There are a couple of ways of doing this walk. The first, and most convenient from Braeriach is to go to Shiskine golf course. From there you follow the track out and you will see a sign near the 3rd tee. From there go through the gate / fence and follow the path. This walk should take about an hour and a half to 2 hours all together.

The other way is to start the walk from the car park in the forestry  -  about 2 miles north from Braeriach. Take the left hand path (as you drive in). This is a circular walk and is approx.  3 miles.



The Doon, Blackwaterfoot, Isle of Arran





Machrie Moor Standing Stones


The walk starts approx. 4 miles away from Braeriach. This is a there & back walk  - approx 3 miles all together.   The path can get a bit wet in winter. There is a small car park about 1/3 of a mile south of the Machrie Bay Tearoom. You then cross the road & follow a cart-track through fields. Dogs should be kept on a lead.

Goatfell

You can ascend Goatfell from Cladach, or from Corrie. This is nearly a mountain though, and the last part is a bit of a scramble, so make sure you take all the proper equipment!
