The Kintyre Way is fairly new. It’s a 161 km self-guided hike which was established 2006. It runs along the length of the Kintyre peninsula.

This gorgeous scenic trail can be hiked year-round. However, read on for our suggestions regarding the best months:

Mid-April - May: Good chance of dry weather. The temperatures go up to 10 - 15 °C. However, Scotland’s weather is unpredictable. For hikers May is often one of the best months: Warm enough, longer daylight, lush and green landscape, wildflowers bloom, less tourists.

June - August: Long, sunny days, warmest time. However, it’s peak season: Most tourists and highest accommodation prices. Annoying midges are at their worst.

September - October: Less busy and midges start to disappear as well. Temperatures in September are between 10 and 16°C in and between 6 and 12°C in October. Idyllic landscape with beautiful foliage. In October deer are rutting. Great time for hiking and wildlife spotting here.

November - March: It can get very cold and days are short. Guesthouses are often closed.
