The Isthmus Camping Pods are the perfect place to get your head down before starting the Kintyre Way.  The camping site and cafe is perfectly situated at the beginning of your adventure.  Stage One embarks from Tarbert, in the heart of Argyll & Bute and gently winds its way to Skipness. There is a whole array of flora and fauna to be found on the way. Keep your eyes peeled for the endangered red squirrel and cast your eye to the water to seek out baskng sharks, seals and otters.

The first stage can be covered in just 5 hours or a more leisurely 8 hours. As you wind your way out of the shelter of Tarbert harbour you will ease down to the spectacular views across to the dramatic mountains of Arran within touching distance across the sound. The full Kintyre Way covers 100 miles and encompasses heritage fishing villages, castles, pristine beaches, lonely hills and bustling forests. Take in the whole route over 7 days or use The Isthmus as your base to chose individual routes. We can always pick you up should you need a lift back to base. You can find great resources and maps here.
