Ayrshire LGBTQ Group is orgainising a lovely walk as part of Bute Pride LGBT weekender!

Following the West Isle Way, 1st Stage, the walk is a circular route from beautiful Kilchattan Bay. It offers amazing views across the Firth of Clyde to the Cumbraes and Arran – including the granite mound of Ailsa Craig, seen in the distance. It takes in the atmospheric and historically significant ruins of St Blane’s Chapel (Blane went on to found Dunblane Cathedral but he was on Bute first!). It is a convenient walk too, since the Rothesay bus service can be taken to and from Kilchattan Bay. Although short, it’s fairly strenuous and the terrain can be rough in places.

The walk is 5 miles/8km and we will have plenty of time to do the walk and enjoy the views.

The cost is £4.90 (bus fare). We are hoping to get funding to provide lunch, more news to follow.

Meet at Guildford Square at 11.30am. The bus back from the South of Bute will leave Kilchattan Bay in time to catch the last ferry to the mainland. If you are coming from Glasgow for the day, you will need to catch the 9.50am train from Glasgow Central.
