Walk Grades

Weather conditions in Cowal are very changeable so it is vital to wear appropriate autumn clothing and sturdy footwear particularly on longer more strenuous walks.

The walk leader is entitled to refuse to take anyone who is not suitably dressed.
Highland Stores in Dunoon offer advice and stock a variety of clothing and accessories.
Easy - mainly flat walking on paths with good surfaces. No stiles, few if any steps.
Fairly easy - gentle walking on paths with uneven surfaces. Gentle or short inclines. Stiles or steps to be expected.
Moderate - varying landscape or shoreline. Marked inclines, stiles or steps to be expected. Suitable for anyone who is reasonably active.
Fairly strenuous - a challenging walk. Fitness and proper equipment required. Steep inclines and rough ground.
Strenuous - long, with varied terrain. Suitable for fit, experienced walkers with proper equipment.
