Kintyre Way Stage 5: Carradale to Campbeltown

A long stage of the Kintyre Way combining an exciting coastal section, farmland paths, extensive forestry tracks, picturesque Loch Lussa and finally a long section of minor road for the final descent to Campbeltown. NOTE: The first section can be impassable at very high tides - use the A83 instead.


There is a very rough shore section between Waterfoot and Dippen Bay which could be impassable at very high tide and can be avoided by following the road. Otherwise the stage follows paths, minor roads and well-made forestry tracks.

Public Transport

There is a bus service between Carradale and Campbeltown.
