The Cowal Way in Argyll Cowal is part of Argyll, in the SW of the Scottish Highlands. Paradoxically, at one and the same time it is very accessible yet very little known. Despite its barriers of sea and hill, this is especially surprising because there is so much to recommend it - beauty, great peace and wildness, together with a long a fascinating history. The Cowal Way, conceived by Jim McLuckie of Colintraive and Glendaruel Community Council, is a mini long distance footpath running the length of the Cowal Peninsula. This pocket sized guide book describes, in six day-by-day sections, a continuous walk across the Cowal Peninsula. The guide begins with brief introductions to the Way and the Cowal Peninsula, followed by a summary of each of the thirteen walks. It is packed with full colour section maps, all kinds of information specific to each section including geographical, historical and archaelogical facts and a most useful "Walking and Safety Tips" section.
