Go Wild in Kintyre! Walk the beautiful and unexplored wild Atlantic coast of the Kintyre peninsula with the Kintyre Way.
Along 100 miles over 4-7 days you will discover hidden coves, deserted beaches, woods & forests, castles & fishing villages and an abundance of wildlife. Stretching from Tarbert in the North to Machrihanish in the South, the seven graded & way-marked sections offer a variety of walking terrain from serious hiking to gentle rambles.
The route is shown on Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger sheets 62 (North Kintyre) and 68 (South Kintyre). For 1:25,000 use OS Explorer 356 and 357.
Getting here is easy – either by road, sea or air. Tarbert the staring point is just over two hours’ drive from Glasgow on the A82 and A83. There are several daily buses as well as a twice-daily flight from Glasgow to Campbeltown.
