This second stage of the West Island Way links Kilchattan Bay with the outskirts of Port Bannatyne. The route passes picturesque Stravanan Bay with views to Arran and then climbs over farmland and open moor with varied views. It leads past Loch Fad, a popular fishery and bird watching loch, before a final stretch above Rothesay to Port Bannatyne.


Paths, farm tracks and minor roads - mostly easy going but some patches can be very muddy.
