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 where the original route was destroyed by rockfall and erosion. Careful route finding is needed on the return over the hill.
Initially grassy coastline, some parts pathless and wet. One short section across very awkward angular boulders is impassable at high tide. The return over the hill is largely pathless.
The walk begins from the ferry terminal at South Cuan.
