Oban and North Argyll 40 Favourite Walks

Oban and North Argyll 40 Favourite Walks

by: Keith Fergus
As well as many great sea lochs, tumbling rivers and iconic mountains, Oban and North Argyll also boasts ancient, wildlife rich woodlands and several fine gardens. Add to this the Crinan Canal, often described as 'the most beautiful shortcut in Scotland', and some of the most important historical and archaeological sites in the country and you have all the makings of a fascinating walking destination.

From the harbour-side bustle of Oban to the ancient tranquillity of Kilmartin Glen, this guide features 40 walks over varied landscapes that take in the very best the 'Coastland of the Gaels' has to offer. The guidebook covers a large swathe of Mid and North Argyll, sweeping inland from the fractured western seaboard between Crinan and Appin to Arrochar and Bridge of Orchy on the region's eastern periphery. Between these four points lies a landscape awash with sea lochs, with Inveraray roughly at the geographical centre. There are no large urban areas here and Oban is the largest settlement.

Almost all the walks in this guide can be completed in half a day, leaving plenty of time to explore the natural attractions. Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, OS map reference, parking and public transport access. Clear route finding instructions follow together with coloured sketch maps. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way.
