The Cowal Way is a waymarked trail running for 57 miles (92 km) across the rugged Cowal peninsula, an unspoiled area of the Highlands just west of Glasgow. It is best walked from Portavadie on Loch Fyne to finish at Inveruglas on Loch Lomond. The Way has some rugged scenery, the walk is easily broken into manageable sections, and it offers glorious views over Loch Fyne, the Isle of Bute and the Firth of Clyde. The Cowal Way links with both the Kintyre Way (by ferry from Portavadie) and the West Highland Way (by water bus from Inveruglas), creating scope for Scotland's ultimate long-distance walk. This is a fully revised version of the first edition, with new large-scale Footprint mapping and updated text and photos. It contains everything you need to plan and enjoy a holiday.
Michael Kaufmann, now a communications consultant, has previously been a soldier, an olive farmer, a journalist and a photographer. He is currently hiding out in Argyll. While serving as a Community Councillor for Glendaruel, he was inveigled on to the Cowal Way by Jim McLuckie and has been walking it ever since. James McLuckie had a 25-year military career, and on leaving the Army he returned to Scotland to establish an outdoor training centre on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll. As Chairman of the Colintraive and Glendaruel Community Council, James devised the Cowal Way route, seeking to encourage others to visit and enjoy this little-known part of Scotland.
