Keil Caves, St Columba's Steps and Dunaverty

Southend has a host of historical attractions as well as fine beaches; this walk attempts to link them all. The Keil Caves were long used as dwellings; St Columba's footprints, chapel and well are a reminder that this is where he landed in Scotland in 563, and the rock of Dunaverty is a reminder of a bloody episode in history.

Tarmac road, sandy beach and grassy tracks. The ascent of Dunaverty is optional on a very rough path above steep drops.

Public Transport

There is a bus service between Southend and Campbeltown.

Car park at Keil Point. Map and directions.
