The Kintyre Way

The Kintyre Way - Campbeltown

Join us at our all-important AGM in Tarbert!

Why not join us at our Annual General Meeting, which takes place at 11.30 am on Saturday, November 11, at the Templars Art and Leisure Centre in Tarbert?

The AGM will welcome all members of the public with an interest in protecting and developing our long-distance walking route, which also serves as a vital asset for the well-being and future economic health of local communities. A light lunch will be served and anyone wishing to come along can book their place by email. Alan Milstead, Chair of the Kintyre Way, said: “This is the ideal opportunity to show your support of Kintyre’s long-distance route and a fantastic opportunity to meet Friends and Supporters of the Kintyre Way. “You will also be able to find out more about the amazing work we do ... and how you, too, can work with us. “If all the fun chat builds up an appetite, you can also enjoy a light lunch, which will be provided for all of our guests.” Carron Tobin, who is leading a major consultation project for the Kintyre Way and SCOTO (Scottish Community Tourism), will give invaluable feedback on its recent series of workshops and reveal the interim findings. Carron said: “This important initiative has involved thoroughly engaging and informative meetings with stakeholders right across Kintyre and beyond and culminated in nine workshops that allowed much closer engagement with local communities. “Its primary aim is to identify the incredibly wide range and variety of opinions on how the Kintyre Way can best improve the lives and economies in the different localities.”

There will also be discussions at the AGM centred on the recent Kintyre Way survey, which has so far attracted 130 insightful responses with readers still able to take part. It’s very easy and takes just a couple of minutes (there’s even a prize draw for all those who take part!). You can use the link here.
