Whiting bay is a pleasant well serviced holiday resort. It is the third largest village on the island (after Lamlash and Brodick) it has been a popular seaside destination since the late 19th century and thrives on a great range of accommodation and a wide selection of places to eat and drink. There are a variety of shops, arts & crafts outlets and a post office ashore. There are plenty of interesting forest walks in this area, especially the well-known trek through the woods of Glenashdale Falls, the island’s most impressive waterfall.
The Giant Grave walk is also well worth taking, and in the burial mound at King Cross visitors can see the evidence of Viking occupation. Moorings are operated by the local community. A donation towards maintenance is welcomed. An honesty box is available on shore.
