With recent changes, the Kintyre Way is becoming established as a challenging and interesting route for cycle cross and mountain bike enthusiasts.

During 2015 and 2016, a number of upgrades have taken place on the Kintyre Way to improve access for cyclists.  We have been encouraging cycling enthusiasts to trial the route – including a select party tackling the Tayinloan to Campbeltown section during the 2016 Kintyre Way Ultra.

Feedback has been extremely positive – boardwalks and our stile replacement programme has made the route much more cycle-friendly – and in the few areas that require riders to dismount – users can push or carry their bike safely.

Great routes for you to try   see all
