Rail & Sail - Loch Eck Loop
Cycling - Loch Eck Loop
A loop around Loch Eck provides a great day out for mountain bikers of all abilities. Starting and finishing at Benmore Botanic Garden and the Benmore Cafe, the 35km route is accessible by bus from Dunoon, except on Sundays. Alternatively a 13km cycle one way on quiet roads and paths leads from the Dunoon ferry terminal to the start.
Almost entirely traffic-free, this is a great day out on the bike for families, with magnificent views of Loch Eck, Beinn Mhor and the west coast islands of Jura and Islay. The loop includes a section of the Wild About Argyll Bikepacking Trail on the eastern shore of Loch Eck.
