Cowal Way, The
with Isle of Bute
Michael Kaufmann and James McLuckie

published 2009 • 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" • 64 pages • color photos • maps
ISBN 9781898481324 • paperback/waterproof • $17.95

The Cowal Way runs for 57 miles (92 km) across the Cowal peninsula, which lies west of Glasgow and has ferry links with the Isle of Bute. The route starts at Portavadie on Loch Fyne and ends at Inveruglas on Loch Lomond. There are ferry links also to the Kintyre Way and to the West Highland Way, and thence to the Great Glen Way. It's the missing link that enables Scotland's ultimate long-distance walk, from the Mull of Kintyre all the way to Inverness.

The trail is waymarked and undulating, with rugged terrain and glorious views over Bute and the Firth of Clyde. The area is rich in history and heritage, with wildlife sightings including red squirrel, red deer and golden eagle.

This essential guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on Cowal and Bute:

  • the Way step-by-step, with summaries of distance, terrain and refreshment stops
  • map, tourist attractions and walks on the historic Isle of Bute
  • habitats and wildlife
  • hill-walks, including the famous "Cobbler"
  • planning information for travel by car, ferry, bus and plane
  • drop-down map showing the Cowal Way route (1:110,000)
  • in full color, with over 80 photographs
  • waterproof paper throughout.
