The local golf club welcomes visitors is within easy walking distance and enjoys an amazing view of Kames Bay and the surrounding hills.
The local pubs serve food at the weekend from locally sourced ingredients and if you are looking for something a little more exotic you could take a trip into Rothesay.
The Post Office has basic groceries and a free cash/ATM machine.
Ettrick Bay Tearoom is 30 minutes walk away along the route of the old tramway and serves everything from tea to a complete lunch. Enjoy the view of Arran [this is its best side] while you have a leisurely lunch. Dont forget to try Alec's cakes before you leave! Walk the calories off along the beach and enjoy the sounds of breaking waves and seabirds.
Take a trip into Rothesay and walk along the esplanade and through the gardens and don't forget to visit Rothesay's famous Winter Gardens, Castle and Musuem. If you fancy going a little further you could catch the bus to Mount Stuart and spend the day looking round the house and its extensive gardens and perhaps stop for lunch or a snack. The Victorian Fernary is on the way to Mount Stuart and is well worth a visit.
If you have time, a great way to see our beautiful island is by the round island scenic open top double decker bus with recorded guided tour, you can catch this just outside the marina gates and hop on and off as you please.
