Description: WALK ONE: GOATFELL
The island's only mountain, at 874m, is a steady but not challenging climb from Brodick Castle. It's 4 miles up, and those wanting an easy day can retrace their steps back down the same way, while for anyone in a more adventurous frame of mind there are options to continue along the ridge and take a different route down. On the recce, we saw deer, red squirrels and a golden eagle!

WALK TWO: MACHRIE and BLACKWATERFOOT
We will start by exploring the standing stone circles at Machrie, and then head through woodland to King's Cave, and finish by following the beach to Blackwaterfoot. This is a flat and easy walk with plenty of points of interest along the way, so we will be taking it at a leisurely pace.

SHORT WALK: GLENASHDALE FALLS
Spectacular waterfalls on a short forest trail, ideal for a half-day before heading for the ferry home.
