The Kintyre Way route is way-marked by blue posts sporting the Kintyre Way logo. In Tarbert, Clachan and Campbeltown vinyl stickers are placed on lamp-posts to guide walkers. Look out for the mile marks which are found throughout the route. You’ll also find seating made with local materials positioned at various viewpoints along the way – perfect for taking a breather!

Although the route is generally considered as staring in Tarbert in the North to Macrihanish in the south the route can also be walked south to north and is fully waymarked in both directions.


The Kintyre Way is also shown on Ordnance Survey 1:50 000 Landranger sheets 62 (North Kintyre) and 68 (South Kintyre). For 1:25 000 use OS Explorer 356 and 357.
