Castle Dounie and the Crinan Trail

This fine walk climbs high above the sea to give stunning views of Jura, Scarba and the Argyll coastline. Starting from picturesque Crinan harbour, it ascends to a dramatically situated iron-age fort on an airy summit. The first section of path can be covered by the sea at the very highest tides.


Clear paths and tracks, with steep ascents
