The Caledonia Way - Campbeltown to Oban

The Caledonia Way, National Route 78 of the National Cycle Network, runs from Campbeltown to Inverness - following the Kintyre peninsula and the Great Glen, iconic features on any map of Scotland. It offers a variety of cycling, from challenging on-road hills to lengthy sections of traffic-free path.

The first section is a 122 mile, mainly on-road route between Oban and Campbeltown, offering adventurous cyclists the chance to explore Lorn, Knapdale and the spectacular Kintyre peninsula. Along the way, there are fantastic views of the islands of Jura and Arran, with pretty harbours, castles, abbeys and ancient stones to explore. There are traffic-free sections along the Crinan Canal and in Kilmartin Glen.

An extensive network of forest trails provides further cycling opportunities in the area.
