Glenan Bay, Portavadie

This boggy but very scenic shorter walk passes through oakwoods and climbs up to the abandoned village of Glenan, a lonely spot, as well as visiting an attractive bay and shoreline.


Woodland and shore paths; the path has some extremely muddy patches in the woods.

Public Transport

Portavadie is served by bus and also by a ferry from Tarbert on the Kintyre peninsula.


Portavadie Forestry car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
