West Island Way on the beautiful Isle of Bute was opened in 2000 as part of the island's millenium celebrations. It was the first of its kind on a Scottish island and is widely regarded as one of Scotland's must-do hikes.
The 32 mile route is sign-posted and can be completed in one day or broken up into parts to complete over several days. The route encompasses a diverse landscape of coastline, beaches, moors and forest. There are spectacular views over the peninsula along the way and plenty of wildlife to be spotted.
