Kintyre Way Stage 3: Clachan to Tayinloan

The third section of the Kintyre Way, apart from a roadwalk at the beginning, keeps right by the coastline providing a total contrast to the rest of the route. There are great views across the water to Jura, Islay and Gigha and some fine beaches. This is a wonderful walk for birdwatchers, so don't forget your binoculars.


Flat coastline. The first section is on a fairly busy road, then a sometimes muddy path beside the shore. There are long sections along pebbly beaches and some sandy beach.

Public Transport

Both Clachan and Tayinloan are linked by buses between Tarbert and Campbeltown.
