West Island Way

The West Island Way was officially opened in 2000 by Janet Street-Porter, the journalist and former president of the Ramblers Association. The route runs the length of the island for about 28 miles (45km) and can be accessed from various points if you want to split the journey.

The West Island Way was the first waymarked long distance island footpath in Scotland. You could walk it between one and five days, but it is best walked over two. It crosses dramatic Bute landscapes, with beautiful coastlines, beaches, farmland, the moors and forests. The route is now part of Scotland’s Great Trails network.
