Peninsula Paths is a local organization convened to promote paths and their use on the peninsula and in particular ,“the Peninsula Way”, a walking route between Kilcreggan pier and Garelochhead railway station. This has been surveyed with the financial assistance of Forward Scotland and Argyll & Bute Council. Copies of the report with the maps used in drawing these sheets, as produced by Kirklee Landscape architects in March 2005, may be seen in local libraries.
Members have been active in clearing paths and establishing relations with the forest management. Recreational access to the woodlands managed by Tilhil is encouraged and various paths have been cleared and marked with green walker discs by Peninsula Paths. Note there has been disturbance and that routes may be closed for felling operations.
Ministry of Defence Police Compass initiative
If walking on M.O.D. land, a call to 01436 850361 may avoid the embarrassment of being checked out. Also please report any suspicious objects such as abandoned munitions.
Waterproof boots are recommended for all off-track routes, as the topsoil is a thin overlay on impervious slate rock types and thus often saturated. Pockets of clay can also make heavy going. Be careful when crossing the peat bogs on the moor, which may be dangerous in wet weather.
