Kintyre Way 2011 - Part 7 [10:00]
This was our final day on the Kintyre Way and our intention was to end the walk on the tidal island of Davaar (at low tide the Dhorlin appears connecting it to the peninsula). Unfortunately, the tide times clashed with our return flights home so we've left that and the remote continuation to Dunaverty for another time. Out of 5-days walking on the Kintyre Way the stretch into Campbeltown from Carradale could do with a lot more thought I'm afraid. Who want would want to walk along forestry roads then along a single track metal road used predominantly by farm vehicles the exact width of the road? Pretty poor to say the least. Really boring actually and its certainly not hillwalking. A real disappointment. That should simply be left as an alternative route for this particular day and a proper hillwalking route established. Now that shouldn't be too difficult eh? Essentially this was our last day on the Way for this trip and if you had to pick one day to get a good soaking then this unspectacular walk would most certainly be it. One thing you do notice along the Way is the number of empty buildings when a walk like this is crying out for bothies and bunkhouses. Take note someone eh. The Kintyre Way claims to be Scotland's newest (it is) and most scenic long distance walk (which is isn't ). The West Highland Way is the most scenic walk in Scotland and the Rob Roy Way because of all its natural features (Falls of Dochart, the secretive Falls of Acharn and the famous Birks of ...

The Kintyre Way, photo highlights of the 87 mile walk using Lumix TZ10 and LX3 [14:15]
Opening in 1997 the newest long distance walk in Scotland covers the entire Kintyre peninsula starting at Tarbert in the north and finishing at Southend in the south. Well waymarked by bright, light blue marker posts bearing the logo of mountains with reflections they show, not only the way of the route but also the distance covered. This is true until after Largiebaan where the distance markers have not been attached (yet). Parking the car in Tarbert, taking coffee before starting the days trek to Loch Fraioch for the first night wild camp by the loch shore. Waking to a spectacular sunrise we then headed west to Point sands passing through Clachan and Corriechrevie. After a night on the campsite the days trek took us over Deucheran Hill (329 mtr) and through the new wind farm and finally dropping into Carradale after witnessing spectacular views of the isle of Arran just a few miles over the Firth of Clyde. Wild camping here before walking through Torrisdale, Saddell and then heading over the hills again towards Meall Buidhe at 374 mtr. Wild camping again by the shore of Loch Tussa. The next morning saw our descent into the main town of the peninsula Campbeltown with a brief excursion around the heritage museum before departing up the coast to Machrihanish and the very welcoming caravan park there. Having an evening meal at the new Golf Club and a good rest saw us embark on the hardest, and longest section, over the southern headland and along the cliffs at largiebaan ...
