This walk follows a track along the west side of Bute with great views across the Kyles to Kames and Tighnabruaich in Cowal. The interest is in the various diversions from the track to visit the remains of several chambered cairns and the ruins of a chapel.


Fairly level track to Kilmichael. Visiting the archaeological remains involve detours from this uphill through woods and fields, on steeper paths with some muddy and overgrown sections.

Public Transport

No public transport to the start. The walk could be started from Ettrick Bay, adding 4km each way.


Parking area at end of minor road below Glecknabae Farm. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
