This walk both encircles and climbs Dùn Skeig, the prominent rocky hill that guards the entrance to West Loch Tarbert. The Dùn is crowned by iron-age remains and is also a superb viewpoint. The walk passes through areas grazed by livestock and has a couple of extremely boggy patches.


Farm tracks, short section of minor road and a short pathless section to the summit. Not all the gates on the walk open and so some may have to be climbed. Return track is waterlogged in a couple of places.

Public Transport

Clachan is well served by buses between Tarbert and Campbeltown.
