On the coast side of the B842 road that runs through Grogport, there is a picnic spot on the beach, with views of Arran across the water. On the other side of the road lies the remnants of a Bronze Age Cist, a stone burial chamber. The Cist is known locally as "The Sailor's Grave" and is estimated to date to approximately 2000 BC.
