Kintyre Way

Kintyre Way

by: Sandra Bardwell and Jacquetta Megarry
The Kintyre Way is a fully waymarked trail that criss-crosses the Kintyre Peninsula for 87 miles (140km). Famous as Scotland's only 'mainland island', Kintyre has rugged coastlines facing west to the Atlantic and east over the Firth of Clyde. You walk past castles, abbeys and prehistoric sites, along deserted beaches and forestry tracks with glorious views and across wild moorland.

The Way begins at Tarbert in the north of the peninsula and meanders southwards to finish at Dunaverty on the south coast of the peninsula. The journey can be completed in six days, although the sparse availability of accommodation means the last two day stages will be long at 20 miles each day. The first section of the guide covers the practicalities of planning and preparation, including accommodation options and suggestions to plan daily walking distances to suit your preferences. Part two provides useful background information including the geography of the peninsula, history and pre-history, habitats and wildlife. Part three describes the route in detail, split into six day sections. There is a full colour map of the route at a scale of 1:110,000 plus over sixty colour photographs.
The staring points for the stages are: Tarbert; Claonaig; Clachan; Tayinloan; Carradale; Campbeltown.
