Please could you note the following OS MAP changes

13th August 2015

News archive

Our 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.

Please be aware that the Explorer 357 was updated and reprinted in Feb 2015 but the other maps currently show our route at Summer 2013. The new Campbeltown to Southend section ( section 6), the Torrisdale to Ifferdale off road section (Section 5) and the deletion of the road walking section from Campbeltown to Machrihanish along the B843 are not shown.

The updated Explorer map is due to be issued in September 2015 with the updates appearing on Landranger from early 2016 (we have not yet been given a firm date). These changes are however easily navigated by following our waymarker poles In the meantime please refer to our leaflet which is downloadable on our website to check on these changes
