Coastal views and a climb to see Arran's famous Sleeping Warrior
This intriguing coastal forest has two very different trails to explore. You can wander through woodland next to the shore on an easy level track looking out towards Bute, or climb high through the trees to see stunning views over the Sleeping Warrior and the north end of Arran.
Fallen Rocks Coastal Trail
A gentle stroll along the wooded shore of the Firth of Clyde to these giant boulders, where you can look for seabirds and porpoises.
Generally flat and wide loose gravel track. Short section to the rocks is firm but narrow, with some short fairly steep slopes and a narrow gate.
Allow 1½ hours
The trail is named after a spectacular rockfall at the far end of the forest track. The Fallen Rocks are on the Arran Coastal Way.
