Cycle Cowal - a pedaller’s paradise

1 day to 2 days - 54 Miles

For family-friendly routes or hard-core mountain passes and cake-stop opportunities galore there is nowhere quite like it in the British Isles.


Established in 2000, the Cowal Way is Scotland’s most diverse long distance footpath. It runs the length of the Cowal Peninsula, passing through the communities of Tighnabruaich, Glendaruel, Strachur, Lochgoilhead and Arrochar.

The Colintraive ferry takes you to the Isle of Butefames for having one of the finest Victorian mansions in the UK, and secluded bays for picnics, paddling, and seal-spotting.

Bute makes for a relaxed and tranquil destination, a place of sheltered coves and sandy bays. If leisurely hiking or an easy-going cycle ride round quiet island backroads are appealing, then look no further. Or take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle and the Gothic splendour of Mount Stuart – the House and Gardens of the Marquess of Bute.

Deer Stalking Winston Churchill Venison, Winston Churchill Stalking offers the chance to explore the wildlife in one of the most beautiful parts of the Scottish Highlands with the benefit of experienced local guides.

We can accommodate the sportsman who is interested in Red deer or Roe deer stalking or the naturalist with his or her camera for a general nature ramble throughout this wonderful landscape and habitat.
