Immerse yourself in Knapdale

Knapdale is bounded to the south by the Kintyre peninsula and to the north by the Crinan Canal. Walkers and cyclists are all drawn to the remote, rugged beauty and wildlife of the area. Knapdale is a place sculpted by the great forces of nature. The western coastline, including the lovely Kilberry peninsula, is fringed with wild, empty beaches. 

Knapdale Forest spreads from coast to coast, and it’s here that beavers have been reintroduced into Scotland. If you love getting active in the outdoors, you’re spoilt for choice in Knapdale. Explore the woodlands, forests and coastline by foot, bike or kayak. You’ll find scenic way-marked trails for all abilities. Knapdale is also home to some fascinating historic attractions.
