Move aside North Coast 500 - there's a new scenic route in town!
Much like the North Coast 500, the Kintyre 66 (K66) route travels through bonnie Scottish countryside to picturesque destinations with unbeatable coastal views. The 66-mile loop meanders through six incredible areas along the West Coast of Scotland – Southend & Machrihanish, Campbeltown, East Kintyre, West Kintyre, Gigha and Tarbert.
Just off the beaten K66 track, Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village can be discovered in amongst mountains perched on Loch Goil making it the perfect spot to visit before embarking on the route. Adventurous travelers can choose from an array of walks, hikes and outdoor activities just a stone’s throw from the holiday park. Those looking to bag a Munro can base themselves at the holiday park and enjoy well deserved comfort and relaxation. The View Bar & Restaurant offers tasty meals with a panoramic view over Loch Goil and DC’s Takeaway is perfect for those looking the grab food on the go.
For travelers with wee ones in tow, there is plenty to keep them entertained during their stay at Drimsynie.
Along the K66 there’s opportunities to snap photos of amazing wildlife - squirrels, herons, deer, highland coos and eagles are likely to make an appearance. No one will go hungry on this route with unbeatable fresh Scottish seafood available in many renowned restaurants along the west coast. For those interested in history, early standing stones and castles of famous clans will pop up along the way.
Even though it might be a wee bit baltic, it’s worth bringing a wetsuit along for an unforgettable dip in the sea at sunset.
Follow Wilderness Scotland’s Leave no Trace initiative leave everywhere as you found it. As the route can be busy, it’s important to plan ahead and book campsites, ferry crossings and restaurants in advance to guarantee availability.
