This route avoids the challenging boulder scrambling and tidal sections around Bennan Head and Dippen Head on the main Arran Coastal Way route - you can switch between the two routes at Kildonan to avoid either or both of the two headlands. Avoiding Bennan Head involves a detour up to the road until Kildonan; the route avoiding Dippen Head climbs high into the forest before descending to Whiting Bay.
First shore section gives some rougher, wetter going; once turned inland, the route follows good tracks or minor roads, with a final descent on a woodland path.
Lagg, Kildonan and Whiting Bay are all well by bus.
