Whiting Bay Isle of Arran

Whiting Bay on 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. After the ferries stopped operating, and the steamers from Glasgow ended their services, Whiting Bay became a very quiet, scenic, residential town.

Today, Whiting Bay is popular for its long peaceful beach, and walking routes 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.

The town also has a popular Golf Club with great views over Whiting Bay, and across the sea to the Scottish mainland. For other popular golf courses around the island, that together make interesting golf holidays, view Arran Golf.

Whiting Bay has 1 hotel, 4 B&Bs or Guest Houses, and a large number of Self Catering properties. The town is a popular base for exploring the island, especially for anyone looking for a quiet peaceful holiday.
