Kintyre Way Stage 2: Skipness to Clachan

The second section of the Kintyre Way begins with a roadwalk; however the traffic is light and the coastal views over to Arran are excellent. Further on the route climbs across desolate moors of tussocky grass before beginning to descend through forestry plantations. Several lochs are passed before the route finally reaches the small, attractive village of Clachan.


Waymarked tracks and constructed path, but some sections remain boggy.
