This superb circuit explores the southern half of the beautiful Isle of Kerrera. Easily reached by a short ferry ride from just south of Oban, the walk has fine views out to other islands and visits the well-preserved and wonderfully atmospheric remains of Gylen Castle.


Mostly on tracks, boggy at times; grassy path to visit the Castle.

Public Transport

Gallanach bus (school times only) from Oban stops at jetty for Kerrera ferry; ferryboat then takes you across to the start of the walk.


Kerrera Ferry terminal. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
