Walking in Argyll

Cowal is a beautiful peninsula with a huge array of local walks. It’s so easy to reach from all major cities in the Central belt and offers extensive walking opportunities for the beginner and enthusiast. This is a rugged and mountainous landscape with varied coastline, tranquil lochs and extensive forests, packed with wildlife, including the famous red squirrel.

Hunter's Quay Walks

The beautiful countryside around Hunter's Quay Holiday Village is perfect for taking a stroll. Whether you wish to take a short walk or a longer, more adventurous trek through the surrounding woodlands, there is a route to suit your requirements.  We've compiled four walks here, ranging in duration from 30 minutes to two hours.

Drimsynie Estate Walks

A favourite with holiday goers, the Drimsynie Circular Walk starts in the Drimsynie House Hotel car park and is clearly signposted, taking you all the way to Corrow Farm. This walk is most enjoyable on a sunny day and very popular with dogs! 

One of the most popular walks in the local area, The Dukes Pass Circular starts in Lochgoilhead village and takes about 3-4 hours to complete - If you are thinking of taking kids along, make sure you pack a picnic! The route takes you across the rugged Ardgartan Peninsula in the section above the east shore of Loch Goil. 

The Dun Na Cuiache Woodland Walk is a little further away, taking place around Inveraray Castle. It offers an extensive selection of stunning scenery, as well as a great traditional tearoom if you fancy a break!

Loch Awe Walks

The Inverawe Nature Trails are based around the Inverawe Smokehouse, a popular attraction located near Loch Awe Holiday Park. The walks are particularly popular with locals and dog walkers, exploring many a hidden cove of forest and making wonderful use of the lochside.
