Located in the south east of Arran, Whiting Bay looks back across to the mainland. The name reputedly derives from “Viking” Bay, rather than the fish. The village is a popular tourist destination and there are facilities for visitors here, including fine eateries and watersports equipment for hire. This is also a great place to walk from, perhaps through the woods of Glenashdale Falls, an impressive waterfall. I recommend the Giant Grave walk, as well as the burial mound at King Cross, with its Viking associations.
