The Kintyre Way was opened in August 2006 and is located in the remote and beautiful Kintyre Peninsula on the West Coast of Scotland. Stretching from Tarbert Harbour in the north, to Machrihanish in the south, the Kintyre Way criss-crosses this lovely peninsula and allows exploration of a wonderful yet undiscovered part of Scotland.

More Island than mainland, lovely Kintyre boasts hidden coves and deserted beaches along the wild Atlantic coast, tiny fishing communities, gentle hills, fabulous local produce and welcoming friendly people.

There are magnificent views to the west to the Islands of Gigha, Islay and Jura and on a clear day, Ireland and to Arran in the east. Enjoy walking through rolling farmland, past inland lochs, coastal plains and sandy beaches. Spot the rich variety of wildlife including roe deer, hen harriers and golden eagles, together with a wide variety of noisy sea birds.
