Welcome to the Kintyre WayMore island than mainland, the wonderfully unexplored Kintyre peninsula boasts hidden coves, deserted beaches along the wild Atlantic coast, tiny fishing communities, gentle hills, fabulous local produce and a welcoming friendly people.
Perhaps you've experienced some of it - a walk along Westport beach as the Atlantic surf crashes onto the shore; scallops, maybe, eaten at the water's edge; the sun setting over Jura; a shot of Springbank; otter spotting; a blustery picnic at the ruined thirteenth century chapel which marks the arrival point of St Columba prior to his trip to Iona. Now, with the launch of The Kintyre Way, you will be able to explore so much more.
Opened in August 2006 and stretching from Tarbert at the north end of the peninsula, to Dunaverty in the south, the way-marked Kintyre Way criss-crosses the peninsula, connecting communities and landscape, people and produce. 140km (87 miles) long with 4 to 7 days worth of walking, there is serious hiking and gentle rambles, all of which bring home the beautiful reality that is Kintyre.
Most of the route is waymarked by blue posts with the Kintyre Way logo on them . In Tarbert, Clachan and Campbeltown vinyl stickers are placed on lamp-posts to guide walkers while in some remote areas temporary waymarks consisting of blue topped wooden stakes are used. Look out for the mile marks which are found throughout the route.The Way has been created by the efforts of Argyll and the Islands Enterprise, (now known as Highlands and Island Enterprise), Forestry Commission, Scottish Natural Heritage, local windfarm trusts, local businesses, Leader and Argyll & Bute Council.
The Kintyre Trail
