Welcome to the Cowal Way
The Cowal Way in Argyll is known as “Scotland in 57 miles”. Only one to two hours from Glasgow and Prestwick International Airports, this accessible part of the Scottish Highlands offers beautiful coastlines, dramatic scenery, engaging heritage and abundant wildlife.
Established in 2000, the Cowal Way is Scotland’s most diverse long distance footpath. It runs the length of the Cowal Peninsula, passing through some of the most beautiful and varied landscape in the Highlands. The Cowal Way begins at Portavadie in the south of Cowal and winds its way up through the peninsula to end at Inveruglas at Loch Lomond, passing through the communities of Tighnabruaich, Glendaruel, Strachur, Lochgoilhead and Arrochar. The route makes use of existing footpaths, forestry tracks, hillsides, quiet roads and traditional rights of way. The views are varied and stunning, including shorelines, forests, hills and lochs. Now one of Scotland’s Great Trails, this quiet and waymarked path also connects with the West Highland Way, Scotland’s most famous long distance route..
