The Kintyre Way / Great Scottish Walksadmin2015-06-18T10:40:26+00:00
Welcome to the Kintyre Way
More 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. 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.
161km (100 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. 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 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. Look out for the mile marks which are found throughout the route.
These are undergoing a redesign so to stand out from normal blue route waymarkers, please bear with us as we roll out the new posts.
