- The Kintyre Way
- Opened in August 2006 and stretching from Tarbert at the north end of the peninsula, to Machrihanish in the south west, the way-marked Kintyre Way criss-crosses the peninsula, connecting communities and landscape, people and produce. 161km (100 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. The Way passes through Torrisdale and offers the ability for guests to walk a long section without going near a public road.
- Davaar Island
- Wikipedia Davaar Island Page
- Davaar is connected to the mainland by a causeway which is only passable at low tide. Please check carefully with the tourist information office (01586 552056). It is a challenging but rewarding walk. Halfway round the island there is a cave with a stunning painting of the Crucifixion gracing it’s dank walls. It was painted in 1887 by a local teacher, Archibald MacKinnon, who had a vision instructing him to carry out this work. The painting is in very good condition, having been recently restored.
- Beinn Ghuilean
- A woodland circuit heading up the slopes of Beinn Ghuilean with good views overlooking Campbeltown. A short section of the route is shared with mountain bikers so care is needed.
- Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse
- The Mull of Kintyre is the blunt southwestern headland that marks the end of Scotland. Immortalised in song by Paul McCartney, the Mull is a simple but very steep tarmac walk with stunning views across to Ireland as well as along the coast.
