Publisher's information 2007


The Kintyre Way opened in 2006 and is a fully waymarked trail running for 89 miles (142 km) southward from the beautiful natural harbour of Tarbert to Dunaverty, near the Mull of Kintyre. Criss-crossing the entire peninsula, you pass castles, abbeys and prehistoric remains, sometimes walking along rugged coastline, sometimes high on forestry tracks with glorious views over Arran, the Firth of Clyde and towards Ireland. You will enjoy many wildlife sightings in this peaceful area, famous as Scotland only "mainland island". This essential guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: a drop-down map showing the whole route (1:100,000 approx); the Way step-by-step, with summaries of distance, terrain and refreshment stops; habitats and wildlife; whisky-making in Kintyre; side-trip to the island of Gigha; and planning information for travel by car, ferry, bus and plane. The book is printed on waterproof paper throughout, and has over 50 photographs.
