Isle of Luing and the Slate Quarries

The Isle of Luing was once the centre of a slate quarrying industry. This circular walk explores the remains of the industry on a now quiet coastline, passing through the delightful village of Cullipool.


Some pathless and wet grassy coastline with one short section across awkward boulders, which cut be impossible at high tide. Much of the rest of the walk follows minor roads.

Public Transport

The walk begins from the ferry terminal at South Cuan.
