  • Arthritis Care Scotland
  • Argyll and Isles Tourism Co-operative
  • The Cowal Way
  • Cowal Walking Group

Our Partners
NHS Living It Up

Kintyre Way Walking Festival & the Kintyre and Gigha Festival
Go Wild in Kintyre! Walk the beautiful and unexplored wild Atlantic coast of the Kintyre peninsula with the Kintyre Way. Along 100 miles over 4-7 days you will discover hidden coves, deserted beaches, woods & forests, castles & fishing villages and an abundance of wildlife. Stretching from Tarbert in the North to Machrihanish in the South, the seven graded & way-marked sections offer a variety of walking terrain from serious hiking to gentle rambles.
The Cowal Way
The Cowal Way in Argyll is known as “Scotland in 57 miles”. Established in 2000, the Cowal Way is Scotland’s most diverse long distance footpath. The route makes use of existing footpaths, forestry tracks, hillsides, quiet roads and traditional rights of way and it runs the length of the Cowal Peninsula, passing through some of the most beautiful and varied landscape in the Highlands.
