October 2018: New boardwalk bridges for West Island Way

We’ve added two boardwalk bridges on the moorland pathway on Stage 4 of Bute’s ‘West Island Way’ (above Shalunt Farm). The footbridges will make it easier for walkers to cross the small burns that drain water from the hillside. This high final section of the Way is well worth the effort as it leads to fine views over Kames Bay, Port Bannatyne and the Firth of Clyde.
