Campbeltown to Dunaverty

The penultimate section starts out from Campbeltown and follows the shore of Campbeltown Loch taking you past the tidal sand bar leading to Davaar Island. From here the panorama opens up and you are rewarded with stunning views of Ailsa Craig and further south to the island of Sanda. This quiet single-track road undulates along the coast line, taking you from high above the cliffs down to secretive bays. On the final stretch you are met with the sandy beaches of Polliwilline and Dunaverty Bay, perfect for taking of those boots and having a dip in the sea.

Dunaverty was also the site of the Battle of Dunaverty or Dunaverty Massacre and the location is now also known as Blood Rock. Little remains of the castle, although the site is protected as a scheduled monument. While here be sure to visit the award winning Muneroy Tea Rooms for a slice of their famous cakes (booking is recommended!).
