Kintyre Way Stage 7: Southend to Machrihanish

The seventh and final section of the Kintyre Way is much tougher than what has gone before. The rewards are the fabulous coastal scenery, views in all directions, and a feeling of remote isolation with no settlements or roads visible for much of the day. Machrihanish has all facilities and regular bus to Campeltown.


Farm tracks, moorland with some pathless sections, rough, boggy ground.

Public Transport

Both Southend and Machrihanish are served by buses from Campbeltown.


Southend. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
