The Kintyre Way, is a segmented long distance walk stretching from Tarbert at the north tip of Kintyre all the way to Southend via the Mull Of Kintyre.
The long distance walk is divided into distinct and manageable sections zig-zagging across the peninsula climbing varied gradients presenting jaw-drapping scenery across the length and breadth of Kintyre.
Additionally there are a number of spurs to walk off of the main route with many of the places not officially featured on the walk accessible by car and can be explored in between.
Begin from the south or the north, that's entirely up to you or enjoy one-off walks on any of the individual sections available on this beautiful walk.
