The Kintyre Way is a charity run by a board of voluntary Directors and has a membership of over 100 local businesses and individuals.

The Kintyre Way had its origins in the 1990s when a group of Kintyre walkers and businessmen started promoting the idea of a long distance path in Kintyre. Today, we cater for over 3,500 visitors a year who cover the 100 miles throughout the year and in all weathers.

Our success has been underpinned by our volunteers, fundraisers and members who have continued to support the Kintyre Way.
