Kilmory Travel Guide - Scotland

This is part of the most peaceful area of Arran and the village of Kilmory has a small village store and post office. The village is near to some fantastic beaches, with huge sandy bays and interesting rock pools. There are many good walks in the area and especially near the coastline where you will generally see large colonies of grey seal.

The Kilmory Cairns are a set of Neolithic chambered cairns, which lie southwest of the village. Skeletal remains and a flint knife were found inside. You can reach one by a signposted forest footpath near the bridge taking you along the riverbank towards the sea. Don't miss out the nearby village of Sliddery.

The name Sliddery comes from Gaelic meaning "field of slaughter". It was here that marauding Vikings foolishly decided that this valley looked like a good place to settle, only to their trepidation. A path leads down to coastal pastures below the old cliff line and on to an outstanding pebble beach.
