Isle of Luing and the Slate Quarries

The Isle of Luing was once the centre of a slate quarrying industry. This wonderful circular walk explores the remains of the industry on a now quiet coastline, passing through the delightful village of Cullipool. There's one very rough tidal section scrambling over awkward boulders, and careful route finding is needed on the return over the hill.

Terrain

Initially grassy coastline, some parts pathless and wet. One short section across awkward angular boulders could be impassable at high tide. The return over the hill is largely pathless.

Public Transport

The walk begins from the ferry terminal at South Cuan.

Start

South Cuan (Luing Ferry pier). Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
