Dun Skeig, Clachan

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This walk both encircles and climbs Dun Skeig, the prominent rocky hill that guards the entrance to West Loch Tarbert. The Dun 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.
