Walking in Cowal Peninsula


Cowal offers fantastic walking, from short strolls to epic routes. What better way to explore the lochs, hills and coastline of this beautiful part of the west coast of Scotland than on foot?  The landscapeof coastline, forest, hill and glen provides a huge range of varied routes of different lengths, suitable for all abilities.

The most famous walk is the long-distance Loch Lomond and Cowal Way, which begins at Portavadie in the south-west and ends at Inveruglas on the shores of Loch Lomond. Some sections are rough and boggy and you will require some navigational skills, but it’s well worth the effort. Why not plan your holiday to coincide with Cowalfest, a walking and arts festival that takes place every year in October.
