The outward leg of the walk consists of the gentle ascent (with distant backward views of Islay) and descent (with good views of Arran and Ailsa Craig) of a low ridge. There is one stile on this section. The return section is along a quiet shore road. Otters are sometimes seen along the shoreline here and also cetaceans out to sea.
I did not see these but I did see gannets, oystercatchers, ringed plovers, cormorants, eider ducks, shell ducks, swallows and terns.

At high tide the grassy headland near the layby at the start of the walk is a good vantage point for watching gannets diving for fish.
Nearby Davaar Island (see general photo) looks worthy of exploration but can only be accessed by walking across the causeway at low tide.
