the Isle of Arran information,
accommodation and large images.
Whiting Bay is situated about 8 miles
south of the ferry port of Brodick, about
4 miles south of Lamlash.
Steamers from Glasgow used to dock at
Brodick and Whiting Bay, and the mainland
ferries ran to Whiting Bay up to 1954.

the steamers from Glasgow ended their
services, Whiting Bay became a very

to the Glenashdale Falls, Giants Grave
and Iron Age Fort. The main trails for
the walks are from the Ashdale Bridge, on
the south side of the town.
