Waterfalls

Get lost in the beauty

Living in this beautiful environment, like many aspects, we tend to take things like waterfalls for granted, but of course their beauty can take your breath away, especially if you’re visiting after the ‘fairy rain’ has fallen!

One of the most famous waterfalls on Arran will be Glenashdale Falls. These are most easily accessed via a forestry footpath from the south end of Whiting Bay. There is a viewing platform – not for those scared of heights – the sight of the falls is spectacular, especially if there’s been rain prior to your visit.

Another waterfall that attracts much attention is on The String (B880). Travelling from Brodick this is on your left hand side at a U bend on this busy road. Use the small car park/layby on the right to park your car or bike. In recent years, the site was cleared by the Arran Trust to allow viewing, following a suggestions from a local farmer, Jack Murchie, who sadly passed away before the clearing was completed. It stands now as a testament to Jack and all his community works.

Eas Mor at Kildonan is accessed by a lovely woodland walk. This is fairly accessible and again the falls are just stunning.

Other waterfalls can be seen around the island, up glens, on hillsides and on shoreline, such as the one below the raised beach at Immacher for example – a perfect shower maybe?

Each waterfall is individual and all are beautiful.
