Great circular walk through woodland, providing lots of pleasant scenery if it is a clear day. The cave is very big and provides a great picnic spot on the shore while taking in the surroundings. The walk back across the shore and then back up...More

Parked at carpark and set off on a 4 mile walk. Went towards the right and looped round the route. Fantastic through forrest, along coast down to caves. Found way back up a wee bit of a challenge because I'm not the fittest. Caves definitely...More

Perfect morning walk with the family - amazing views and lots of interest for the children. Found crabs on the beach and explored the caves. Lots of fun!

A fine walk taking the circular route. Surprisingly large cave with a few others to view as well. Good spot for a picnic on the shore.

This is such a good walk with beautiful views and then once at the caves, its great having a look around them all seeing the carvings and letting your imagination wander.

King's Caves are a natural phenomenon and well worth the walk from nearby Blackwaterfoot. The walk there itself is very enjoyable and lots of sea birds can be seen on the coastal walk. The caves themselves are renowned for their ancient graffiti which is best...More

We wanted to see the caves, but not spend so much time doing the whole circular as we had plenty more to see the day we were there. So we just walked to the caves and back via the shortest route, which was to follow...More

This was a great circular walk from car park east of caves. Walk through forest plantation led to fantastic views over the coast. Diving gannets were truely impressive. The caves on a raised beach took me back to A level classes and isotatic readjustment. A...More

We managed to do the walk just before Ophelia hit the coast. Easy walk combining forest and beach. Not really difficult, a bit boggy in some places.
