  • 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.
     
    Perhaps you’ve experienced some of it – a walk along Westport beach as the Atlantic surf crashes onto the shore; scallops, maybe, eaten at the water’s edge; the sun setting over Jura; a shot of Springbank; otter spotting; a blustery picnic at the ruined thirteenth century chapel which marks the arrival point of St Columba prior to his trip to Iona. Now, with the launch of The Kintyre Way, you will be able to explore so much more.
     
    Opened in August 2006 and stretching from Tarbert at the north end of the peninsula, to Dunaverty in the south, the way-marked Kintyre Way criss-crosses the peninsula, connecting communities and landscape, people and produce. 140km (87 miles) long with 4 to 7 days worth of walking, there is serious hiking and gentle rambles, all of which bring home the beautiful reality that is Kintyre.
     
    Plenty of accommodation along the route, can be walked in sections to suit time and capabilities check out web site for all information including Geocaching project.
