Walking

From a day's walking of a single section, through to the full 100 miles taken over 7-10 days, the Kintyre Way gives you uniquely unspoilt access to hugely varied countryside and coastline.

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.
