Walkers pictured at Kilchattan Bay after completing Stage One of the West Island Way – in perfect Spring weather for enjoying the fine South End scenery!
Pictured (on a fine April day) is the Information Board and gateway to the Kelspokes (a ruined castle and settlement). In addition to the historical interest this walk offers fine views across the Firth of Clyde and to Little Cumbrae. We’ll be installing new signage soon to help keep walkers on the right track.
Bute Conservation Trust volunteers repair one of the bridges on the West Island Way – on Stage 2 where the path beside the airfield heads to the golf course and Stravannan Bay.
The monthly Saturday morning session for members of Bute Conservation Trust sees volunteers complete repairs to the boardwalk over a sometimes muddy section of the Suidhe Wood path. This walk is a popular walk with residents and visitors to Bute and also forms part of our ‘West Island Way’, one of Scotland’s ‘Great Trails’. (Picture: Billy Shields)
Bute Conservation Trust volunteers visit the South End of Bute to check the condition and signage of the walk to Dunagoil, the site of an iron age hill fort. Dunagoil Bay can be seen in the background.
