A 'PICTORIAL OVERVIEW' OF and AN "ALTERNATIVE" GUIDE TO

THE KINTYRE WAY and THE SUSTRANS CYCLE ROUTE 78
KINTYRE, ITS DROVE ROADS and OLD HORSE POST ROUTES including 'North- to- South' Ordnance Survey Map National Grid References

LINKED TO THE GEOGRAPH WEBSITE PHOTOS and MAPS
The simple aim of this work is to provide a 'pictorial overview' of The Kintyre Way, the Kintyre section of The Sustrans Cycle Route 78, The National Cycle Network's route between Oban, Campbeltown and Southend, the Kintyre peninsula itself, the old Drove Road and Horse Post Routes crossing mid-Kintyre and Kintyre's 'Wartime Heritage Trails', a further listing of Kintyre's Wartime and other Aircraft Crashes also being found at the end of this document - To that end, each of the listed grid reference points has been 'hyperlinked' to the pages of the March 2005-founded 'Geograph' website, it sponsored by Britain's Ordnance Survey mapping agency, the 'thumbnails' of any available photographs then being displayed on a 'terrain map' of the area of interest. Anyone interested in finding out more about Kintyre and Kintyre's history should visit the now extensive 'document archives' of "Kintyre On Record" which are now online at http://www.scribd.com/Kintyre%20On%20Record and also on Kintyre On Record's own website at http://www.kintyreonrecord.co.uk/articles.php Contrary to the age-old 'natural convention' of citing latitude before longitude, Britain's Ordnance Survey map grid lines are numbered sequentially from the bottom left of the map, the grid numbers on the east-west (horizontal) axis called 'Eastings' and the grid numbers on the north-south (vertical) axis called 'Northings', the 'Eastings' always given before the 'Northings' and thus, in the 6 digit grid reference NR123456, the 'Easting' component is '123' and the 'Northing' component is '456', the grid squares in British 'Ordnance Survey' maps using a one-kilometre square grid spacing Too, that Kintyre is a peninsula and not a 'broad continent' and the first aim being to follow the course of The Kintyre Way from north to south, the listings that follow have been set out with the 3-digit 'Northing' component listed first, the full NR Grid Reference following and, after an 'arbitrally devised' Section Code, it simply based on the progression from one grid square to another, a note given of any prominent features in the area, such as a building, mountain, loch or stream, the columns headed thus N'ly NR Grid Ref Section Code LOCATION / FEATURE(S)

Essential 'travelling companions' for anyone with an interest in Kintyre's history are Frances Hood's 2000-published and now long-out-of-print book, "A Field Guide to The Archaeology of Kintyre" which draws on a range of well-respected 'standard' reference works, many of these too now out of print and, for the convenience and interest of anyone who has a copy of this work to hand, the general headings and page correspondences have also been noted in this document - Also in print and available from local Kintyre bookshops, Andrew McKerral's "Kintyre In The Seventeenth Century" recording particularly turbulent times, not least the course of events culminating in The Massacre of Dunaverty, at the very end of The Kintyre Way and, essential for anyone walking The Kintyre Way is Sandra Bardwell and Jacquetta Negarry's 2007-published Rucksack Readers' guide to "The Kintyre Way" 1 1

ABOUT KINTYRE and THE KINTYRE WAY Kintyre and Its Geography
KINTYRE, including the islands of Gigha, Cara, Sanda and several islets, is the southern-most district of Argyllshire, only the narrow isthmus, between East Loch Tarbert and West Loch Tarbert, separating Kintyre from Knapdale, preventing Kintyre from being an island, its southern extremity terminating in that bold broad promontory called The Mull of Kintyre. Kintyre (Gael, ceann-tir, 'head-land'; Cym. Pentir), the long projection southward from the Scottish mainland, measures 42½ miles in extreme length from N by E to S by W, its width varying between 4½ and 11½ miles. A chain of hill and mountain, culminating in Beinn-an-Tuirc (1,491 feet), runs along its middle, with varied declivity on either side, to belts of low sea-board and it presents, from end to end, a considerable variety and large amount of pleasing landscape containing a greater proportion of cultivated laud than almost any other district of equal extent anywhere in The Scottish Highlands.

Kintyre's West Coast
Kilcalmonell, once the northernmost coast parish in Kintyre, contained the village of Clachan and the greater part of the small seaport town of Tarbert and, until 1891, was united with the old parish of Kilberry in Knapdale. Thus, until united with the parish of Killean and Kilchenzie in 2007, Kilcalmonell was bounded N by West Loch Tarbert and by South Knapdale, E by Loch Fyne and by Saddell and Skipness, S by Killean and Kilchenzie and W by The Atlantic Ocean. Its greatest length, from NE to SW, is 14 miles; its breadth varies between 2¼ and 5 miles and its area, excluding foreshore and water, is now 27,751½ acres. The coast comprises a largish aggregate of sandy shore and includes several small fishing hamlets and harbours. Of the twelve or thirteen fresh-water lochs dotted over the parish, the largest are Lochs Ciaran (8¾ x 3½ furlongs; 353 feet) and Loch Garasdale (4¼ x 3½ furlongs; 404 feet). The surface is hilly but nowhere mountainous, chief elevations from N to S being Cruach an t-Sorchain (1,125 feet), Cnoc a' Bhaileshios (1,383 feet), Cruach nam Fiadh (882 feet), Creag Loisgte (650 feet) and Cruach McGougain (813 feet). Tarbert, sometimes designated East Tarbert, a village and small sea-port, lies 35 miles NNE of Campbeltown and 13½ miles S of Lochgilphead. Tarbert stands at the E end of the isthmus between East Loch Tarbert and West Loch Tarbert, separating the peninsula of Kintyre from the district of Knapdale. That isthmus is only 1¼ miles across and was anciently protected by three castles, one in the centre, one at the head of West Loch Tarbert and one on the S side of East Loch Tarbert. East Loch Tarbert, projecting westward from Loch Fyne, is of small size, only 7 furlongs long and nowhere more than ½ mile broad and but 1¼ miles of ground separates East Loch Tarbert from West Loch Tarbert, it around 10 miles in length and measuring around just ¾ mile in mean breadth, then runs out nearly due SSW seawards and, with three small islets, it has more of the aspect of a picturesque fresh-water lake than a sea loch. Killean and Kilchenzie, which united with Kilcalmonell parish in 2007, was a united parish on the W coast and contains the hamlets or villages of Kilchenzie, 4 miles NW of Campbeltown; Glenbarr, 8 miles N by W of Kilchenzie; Killean, 5½ miles N by E of Glenbarr and Tayinloan, 7 furlongs N by E of Killean. 2 2

Old records tell us that fairs, now long since discontinued, were formerly held in the parish on the Friday before the last Wednesday of May and the Wednesday after the last Thursday of July. Thus, bounded N by Kilcalmonell, E by Saddell and Campbeltown, S by Campbeltown and W by The Atlantic Ocean, the parish of Killean and Kilchenzie has an utmost length from N to S of 13 miles, a varying breadth of 2¼ miles to 6¼ miles and an area of 42,742 acres, of which 441 are foreshore and 192 acres water. The coast-line, extending 18¼ miles south-by-westward, from opposite Druimyeon Bay in Gigha island to a point 1¼ miles W by S of Kilchenzie, projects low Rhunahaorine Point and bolder Glenacardoch Point (102 feet) and is slightly indented by Beallochantuy Bay and several lesser encurvatures. Barr Water, running 8½ miles south-westward, is the chief of thirteen streams that flow to The Atlantic and the largest of ten small lochs are Loch nan Canach (3¾ x 2 furlongs; 475 feet) in the S and Loch an Fhraoich (4 x 1 furlongs; 709 feet) in the N. A narrow strip of low alluvial land lies all along the coast and from it the surface rises rapidly eastward, chief elevations from N to S being Narachan Hill (935 feet), Cnoc na Craoibhe (1,103 feet ), Cnoc Odhar Auchaluskin (796 feet), Cruach Mhic-an-t-Saoir (1,195 feet), Cruach Muasdale (655 feet), Benin Bhreac * (1,398 feet), Meall Buidhe * (1,228 feet), Cnoc Buidhe (1,023 feet) and Ranachan Hill * (706 feet), where asterisks * mark those summits that culminate on the E confines of the parish. Antiquities, other than those noticed under Dundonald and the Giant's Fort, are a number of barrows, hill forts and standing stones. From the Macdonalds, The Lords of The Isles, Dundonald, an ancient castle in the centre of Killean and Kilchenzie parish, passed to the ancestors of The Duke of Argyll and is now represented by rude remains. The Giant's Fort (Gael. Ihin-na-foghniliar), was one of two conjoint ancient circular enclosures in the southern division of Killean and Kilchenzie parish, the other called Fun Fhinn or Fingal's Fort. They have few characters definable by antiquaries; but they attract the attention of travellers and are vulgarly regarded as ancient residences of Fingal and his giants.

Kintyre's East Coast
Saddell and Skipness parish lies on the E side of Kintyre peninsula and was formed out of the parishes of Killean and Kilcalmonell in 1753, the parishes of Saddell and Skipness once again united united about 2005. The parish contains the village of Carradale, 13 miles N by E of Campbeltown and 22 miles S by E of Tarbert, the parish's other villages being Saddell, 4 miles S by W and Skipness, 15½ miles N by E of Carradale. The parish of Saddell and Skipness is bounded NE by the lower waters of Loch Fyne, E by Kilbrannan Sound, SW by Campbeltown, W by Killean and Kilcalmonell and NW by Kilcalmonell. The parish's utmost length, from NNE to SSW, is 24¼ miles; its breadth varies between 1¾ and 5 miles, whilst tapering N and S to a point and its area is 74½ square miles or 47,663 acres, of which 300 acres are water, 480 acres are foreshore and 10 acres tidal water. The coastline, extending 6¼ miles SSE and S along Loch Fyne to Skipness Point and thence 24¼ miles SSW along Kilbrannan Sound, is indented by only one good-sized inlet, Carradale Bay, which projects but one considerable headland, Carradale Point (133 feet high) and mostly rises steeply from the sea to a height of over 100 feet. Of seventeen streams that run to Kilbrannan Sound, much the largest is Carradale Water, formed by the Drochaid and Narachan Burns, runs about 7 miles SSE to the bay and has a considerable volume, Carradale Bay is flanked on the NE side by a rocky headland, the Aird of Carradale (133 feet); is 1 mile broad and 5 furlongs long and opens, with SSE exposure, into the southern part of Kilbrannan Sound. 3 3

The other streams being the Skipness, Claonaig and Saddell Waters; whilst, of fifteen small fresh-water lochs, the chief are Loch Romain (4 x 1 furlong; 612 feet) and Loch Tana (2¼ x 1 furlong; 605 feet). Claonaig Burn, in the NE of Kintyre, is formed by the Larachmor and lesser head-streams and winds 2½ miles SE, past Skipness church, to Kilbrannan Sound, 2¾ miles WSW of Skipness Point. The surface is hilly everywhere, in places mountainous, the principal summits from N to S being Cruach Doire Leithe (1,230 feet), Coire nan Capull (1,095 feet), Fuar Larach (886 feet), Creag Mhor (741 feet), Cnoc an Samhlaidh (866 feet), Deucharan Hill (1,081 feet), Cnoc nan Gabhar (753 feet ), Beinn Bhreac (1,398 feet), Meall Donn (1,138 feet), Ben an Tuirc (1,491 feet), Cnocmalavilach (855 feet) and Bord Mor (1,338 feet). From Ben an Tuirc (Gael. 'Mountain of The Wild Boar'), the mountain lying some 10 miles N by E of Campbeltown, in good weather, there can be a magnificent view of seven Scottish and two Irish counties and the panorama can extend from Corsill Point in Wigtownshire to Ben More in Mull and Ben Lomond in Stirlingshire. The hills are neither steep, barren, nor rocky, but generally covered with an intermixture of grass and heath and, rising regularly and with easy ascent from the shore, they have flat summits, or stretch away into small tablelands. The glens, all running from NW to SE, usually open at their lower ends upon beautiful little bays and they enjoy so great a degree of heat and such happy visitations of fertilising showers, as are highly favourable to agriculture.

South Kintyre
Of CAMPBELTOWN, a plain, 5 miles in length and 3 in breadth, extends from the head of the loch W to the shore of The Atlantic Ocean and from both sides of the loch and of the plain, the surface rises into groups of hills. Those hills to the N are bare and, not exceeding 710 feet above sea-level, do little more than diversify the landscape; but those to the S have a considerable aggrogate of wood and go boldly aloft, with diversity of contour, to a culminating altitude of 1,104 feet in Beinn Ghuilean, 1¾ miles SSE of Campbeltown. The parish of Campbeltown is bounded N by Killean and Saddell, E by The Firth of Clyde, S by Southend and W by The Atlantic Ocean. The parish's length, from N to S, varies between 5½ and 11¾ miles, its breadth between 4½ and 10½ miles and its land area is 44,220 acres. The extent of W coast is about 8 miles, the E coastline being about 4 miles long. Campbeltown Loch, on the E and Machrihanish Bay, on the W, lie opposite each other and render the plain between them much the narrowest part of the parish. The shore on the E is chiefly rocky toward the N, a sandy beach on both sides of Campbeltown Loch and boldly precipitous toward the S; but on the W, except to the S, is entirely sandy. The plain of 5 miles in breadth, already noticed as extending from the bend of Campbeltown Loch to Machrihanish Bay, bears the name of Laggan of Kintyre and presents some appearance of being alluvial, or rather diluvial and probably, at a comparatively recent geological period, lay under the sea. From it, the surface rises N to a hill near Aucha Lochy (710 feet), Ballivulline Hill (600 feet), Ranachan Hill (706 feet), Skeroblin Cruach (640 feet), Easach Hill (1,064 feet) and Sgreadan Hill (1,298 feet); southward to Beinn Ghuilean (1,154 feet), Ballimenach Hill (379 feet), Achinhoan Hill (980 feet), Arinarach Hill (1,031 feet), Tirfergus Hill (853 feet), Skerry Fell Fad (781 feet), The Slate (1,263 feet) and, on the Southend border, Cnoc Moy (1,462 feet). 4 4

Of these Beinn Ghuilean, 1¾ miles SSE of the town, commands a magnificent view of the Ayrshire coast, The Firth of Clyde, Kintyre, the NE of Ireland and the Islay and Jura group of The Hebrides. Sheets of water are Black Loch (1 x ½ furlong), The Reservoir (3 x 1 furlongs), Aucha Lochy (2½ x 1½ furlongs) and three or four others; streams are Machrihanish Water, flowing W and Glenlussa Water, flowing E. DAVAAR or Devar, a small island in the mouth of Campbeltown Loch, rises 300 feet above sea-level, it has an utmost length and breadth of 5 and 4½ furlongs and serves as a natural breakwater to Campbeltown harbour, protecting it from wind and wave and, to the S side of the mouth of Campbeltown Loch, the island is joined to the mainland by a sandbar ½ mile long, bare at low water. SOUTHEND, a village and a parish at the southern extremity of the peninsula of Kintyre, stands 9½ miles S by W of Campbeltown, its parish, comprising the ancient parishes of Kilcolmkill and Kilblane, including the island of SANDA and the adjacent islets, has been called Southend since The Reformation. It is bounded N by the parish of Campbeltown and on all other sides by the sea, its length, from E to W, is 10¾ miles, its breadth, from N to S, varying between 2¾ and 6¼ miles and its area is 31,160 acres, of which 277½ acres are foreshore and 81½ acres are water. The parish's coastline, some 20½ miles in extent, is slightly indented by three or four little baylets capable of affording anchorage to vessels and terminates to the SW in the bold broad promontory of The Mull of Kintyre. It is chiefly sandy in the E, but high, bold and very rocky in the W, its high bold parts abound with caves and presents a striking appearance as seen from the sea. The interior of the Southend parish exhibits a picturesque variety of heights and hollows, pastoral hills and arable vales, low grounds and healthy eminences. Chief elevations, from E to W, are Kerran Hill (775 feet), Tod Hill (610 feet), Cnoc Mor (399 feet), Cnoc Odhar * (907 feet), Beinn na Lice (1,405 feet) and Cnoc Moy * (1,102 feet), where asterisks * mark those summits that culminate on the northern border. Two burns, Conieglen Water and the Breackerie Water, which drain the surface S to the sea, are subject to sudden inundating freshets and sometimes cut out for themselves leaches of new channel. Sanda, a small island, belonging to the parish of Southend, lies at the W side of the entrance of The Firth of Clyde, 1¾ miles SSE of the nearest part of the peninsula of Kintyre, 6¾ miles ESE of The Mull of Kintyre and 10 miles S by E of Campbeltown. Sanda has an utmost length and breadth of 1¼ and ¾ mile and a circumference of 4 miles; consists of sandstone rock and has a tumulated surface, with an extreme altitude of 405 feet above sea level. Moderately high cliffs form part of its shores and one of these is pierced with a very large natural arch and forms a very picturesque object. Two islets, called Sheep Isle and Glunimore, lie off its NE side.

and so to THE KINTYRE WAY
Though Scotland's Forestry Commission were first approached by Argyll and The Isles Enterprise (A.I.E.) about the idea of developing a long distance footpath in Kintyre in 2001, many of the then existing Forestry Commission trails in the area suitable for integrating into the route, it took several years of consultation with over a score of private land owners and the local authority before, after countless changes of direction, the route finally opened on August 12, 2006. 5 5

The Kintyre Way runs from East Loch Tarbert, on Loch Fyne, at the north end of the peninsula, to Southend, overlooking The North Channel between Scotland and Ireland, in the south, the 'way-marked' paths and tracks criss-crossing the peninsula as they connect Kintyre's coastal communities, the ownership of the paths and tracks split almost equally between Scotland's Forestry Commission, Argyll and Bute Council and private land-owners and the route created through the efforts of the local windfarm trusts, the Forestry Commission, Scottish Natural Heritage, The Kintyre Marketing Group and local businesses, Argyll and The Isles Enterprise (A.I.E.), Argyll & Bute Council and VisitScotland. 'Pedestrianism' in Kintyre 'Pedestrianism', like foot racing or horse racing was a popular spectator sport in theBritish Isles during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and, especially with the growth of the popular press, feats of foot travel over great distances gained attention. One of the most famous pedestrians of the day was one Captain Robert Barclay Allardice, the 6th Laird of Ury, called "The Celebrated Pedestrian" of Stonehaven, his most impressive feat being to walk 1 mile every hour for 1,000 hours, a feat which captured the imagination of the public and drew some 10,000 spectators to watch over the course of the event, which took place between the June 1st and the July 12th, 1809 - During the 42 days of this exercise, his average time per mile increased from 14m 54s to 21m 4s, while his weight dropped from 13st 4lb (84.5 kg) to 11st (70 kg) and, if the report of the total wagers was accurate, they were equivalent to some £5 million ($US 8 million) in present-day terms. As a consequence of Allardice's feat, long distance walking competitions were introduced, a popular goal being to attempt to walk 100 miles in less than 24 hours, the successful entrants earning the nickname of "Centurians". That said, it is something of a disappointment that the long distance Kintyre Way presently and completely by-passes the home of one of Captain Allardice's descendents, Mrs Jeanne Macalister, widow of Angus, 5th Laird of Glenbarr, she continuing to have her home here in Kintyre's Glenbarr Abbey, her forebear dying in 1854 and his only surviving child, a daughter, who settled in America. Whilst the promoters of The Kintyre Way seem unlikely to have been aware of these matters, the general focus on the route, walking it in its entirety, from end-to-end, rather tends to turn its completion as a 'challenge', one that is perhaps beyond the interest of many 'ordinary' tourists and indeed both the promoters of The Kintyre Way and too the only, so far, published guide to The Kintyre Way are somewhat dismissive of the potential opportunities that could be opened up for 'ordinary' tourists when they, rather simply, refer particularly to the Bellochantuy and Peninver tracks and paths as 'Spurs', "Neither is relevant to 'end-to-end' Way walkers, but either may interest anybody staying in these villages who wishes to walk up to join the main Way" ! Whither The Weather It also seems that neither the promoters of The Kintyre Way, nor the writers of the only, so far, published guide to The Kintyre Way are to be easily persuaded that there are other times of the year, rather than just 'May or September' or 'probably Spring, early Summer and early Autumn', when there are favourable weather conditions for undertaking the routes and, despite the fact that few of Kintyre's hotels or 'bed and breakfasts' are ever closed, the guide goes so far as to say that 'In practice, short hours of daylight, near certainty of strong winds and heavy rain and very limited accommodation will rule out the the months from October to March for many people', comments that are at best 'unhelpful' and comments, apart from those concerning the matter of some shorter daylight periods, that few 'locals' could generally agree with. True, weather conditions MUST BE be of prime concern for anyone, regardless of whether they be in a group or walking alone but, the wise will take things day-by-day and hour-by-hour and, very sensibly, trawl the very best of the internet weather websites morning and night BEFORE planning and setting out on the new day's trail(s). 6 6

WEATHER LINKS Kintyre's weather is 'unique' for Kintyre is near-surrounded by water and professional weather forecasters, though improving with the help of technology, often have bother with their predictions - Although the BBC's forecasts at the end of their BBC 1 'Reporting Scotland' television news programmes are 'interesting', the forecasts following the BBC 1 Northern Ireland's 'Newsline' television news programmes and, for example their Ballycastle weather page, which too allows one to watch a repeat of the the latest televised forecast, are far more informative, Kintyre's weather, generally, coming in from the south-west and The Atlantic Ocean - To further 'complicate' matters for anyone walking The Kintyre Way, the weather can vary from one side of Kintyre to the other and, frequently differ between the north and south ends of the peninsula, in a word, Kintyre's weather is very 'local'. Though there are now many tens of 'weather' websites on the internet, the more reliable of reports appear to come from the AccuWeather website and, to get a proper 'overview' of what is either happening, or likely to happen, one must always check the weather reports and forecasts (sometimes rather slow to load but available in both 'English' and metric measure) for these three stations - Tarbert - Gigha and Campbeltown and, to get some sense of how 'the weather' is moving AND one should also check out the European Rainfall Radar report, its 'animated' screen showing the movement of any rain, to within the last 15 minutes, over the last 3 hours, albeit that the screen time is shown as C.E.T. (Central European Time). It is recommended that some time is spent browsing the various links (and checking the webcams, if they are working too) that are given on the Kintyre On Record weather pages, of particular interest to anyone visiting or walking Kintyre or The Kintyre Way is the short article there which describes how The Atlantic depressions cross the Kintyre peninsula. PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES and LINKS Very few people manage to walk the complete length of The Kintyre Way without, at some point(s), resorting to cars, taxis or buses to get them to starting and finishing points and, not least to help them get to camp sites, 'bed and breakfasts', or hotels for overnight accommodation, such places often at some distance from the route's 'way points'. Though the area's public transport services can get walkers to and from many of the starting and finishing points for each of the routes, none of the necessary connections are highlighted in either the local operators' or Argyll and Bute Council's own public transport timetables or at roadside bus stops and it is sensible here to give some overview of the area's local bus services so that walkers may better plan their routes and their needs for accommodation before arriving in the area. For general purposes, though the necessary online bus timetables can be found on either Argyll and Bute Council's website at http://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/content/roadsandtransport/gettingabout/bus/ or on the website of Campbeltown-based West Coast Motors at http://www.westcoastmotors.co.uk/timetables.aspx . At the time of writing, in May 2009, there are indeed no Sunday local bus services except for the thrice-daily Citylink services, on the west side of Kintyre, between Campbeltown and Glasgow, an 'inconvenience' which may have some bearing on walking itineraries and, in general, walkers too should consider that most of the area's 'rural' services, especially on the west side of Kintyre, are geared solely to the provision of weekday 'school bus' services, the 'cardinal and general principle' of walking being to ALWAYS WALK IN TOWARDS earlier booked overnight accommodation stops, rather than expecting any necessary transport arrangements to work when one completes any route section. 7 7

AN 'ALTERNATIVE' WAY -

A 9-NIGHT 'OUTLINE ITINERARY' FOR WALKING AROUND KINTYRE

For anyone willing to forego the 'challenge' of walking the complete length of The Kintyre Way from 'end-to-end' and prepared to ignore the somewhat featureless hill section between the (summer only) Arran car ferry terminal at Claonaig and Clachan and too ignore the somewhat awkward, mixed, 'on and off beach and road' section between Clachan and Tayinloan's old fish farm, the following scheme is suggested, one that embraces the availability of the area's local bus services and therefore increases the likelihood that one will be safely off the hills and timeously into accommodation for each night. Though there are a number of possible permutations of the itinerary here, the following route sequences, with a little effort, can be made to connect with the area's bus services and minimise the need for making arrangements with others to get one to and from route starting and finishing points and overnight accommodation points. Whilst it is of course up to individuals to make their own arrangements, the 'outline itinerary' suggested here might best be undertaken if walkers were to begin by making their way to Tarbert (Loch Fyne) for their first, 'pre-walk' overnight stay, three nights accomodation, for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, being needed in Tarbert. Monday night would be spent in Carradale; the choice of accommodation for Tuesday night would, as one will see from the 'outline' here, depend on the individual's decision of options and could be at Bellochantuy, Campbeltown or on the island of Gigha; the next three nights, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, would then be spent in Campbeltown and the final night, the Saturday night, might, 'optionally' be spent again in Tarbert, it being the case that that 'final' day's walk actually connects with the last Glasgow-bound Citylink bus, the connection allowing walkers the opportunity to return homeward, or elsewhere, that evening. "FRIDAY" - DAY 0) - GETTING TO TARBERT (Loch Fyne and NOT Tarbet, Loch Lomond) - Coming from Scotland's 'Central Belt', or Oban or Dunoon, by public transport, one should, at the latest that day, take the 18.00 Route 926 Campbeltown-bound Citylink bus from Glasgow's Buchanan Street Bus Station, that service also connecting with the services from Oban and Dunoon when it arrives in Inveraray at 19.45, the bus then arriving at Tarbert's Turning Circle at 21.05 BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL ON ALL CITYLINK SERVICES TO and FROM GLASGOW as 'unbooked' passengers are often turned away ! TOO, make certain that you have booked your accommodation in Tarbert well in advance as there are often events in the village which put heavy demand on accommodation in the area. "SATURDAY" - DAY 1) - Tarbert (bus) - Skipness - Tarbert 1) After an overnight stay in Tarbert - Take the Route 448 bus from Tarbert to Skipness, it leaves Tarbert's Information Centre at 07.41 am on schooldays and at 08.13 am on non-schooldays and Saturdays (no Sunday services) and arrives in Skipness village at 08.12 am / 08.44 am - The 11 mile / 18 kilometre walk back into Tarbert can then be relatively easily accomplished without any concern about 'how to get home' - Importantly note that, if one were one to walk from Tarbert TO Skipness, the LAST BUS leaves Skipness at 16.09 on schooldays, 17.44 on non-schooldays and Saturdays (no Sunday services). "SUNDAY" - DAY 2) - Tarbert (bus) - Achnafad - Fish Farm - Rhunahaorine - Tayinloan 2) After an overnight stay in Tarbert - Take the 12.15 Route 926 Campbeltown-bound Citylink bus from Tarbert's Turning Circle to Achnafad (just north of Tayinloan and north of the old fish farm) arriving at Achnafad around 12.45 or so - Follow The Kintyre Way markers along the shore line and round Rhunahaorine Point and to Point Sands Caravan Park and, continuing along The Kintyre Way to the Gigha Ferry Terminal and on to Tayinloan village itself - Return to Tarbert on the LAST BUS, the 17.32 Route 926 Glasgow-bound Citylink bus.

"MONDAY" - DAY 3) - Tarbert (bus) - Tayinloan / Killean - Carradale 3) After an overnight stay in Tarbert - Take the 'Tayinloan or Campbeltown' head-boarded bus (Mondays to Fridays only, regardless of school days or school holidays) Route 449 bus from Tarbert's Turning Circle at 07.25 am and (after transferring buses at Tayinloan on school days, the bus going straight through to Campbeltown on others) a mile or so further on, in sight of the buildings beside the main road at Killean Estate, arriving there around 08.15 am, get off at the start of the forestry road which founds The Kintyre Way to Carradale - Even if one is not staying in Carradale overnight, the 16 mile / 26 kilometre walk, quite hilly but on a generally well-kept Forestry Commission road, should be completed in good enough time to enable one to perhaps even catch the 16.45 Route 300 'Campbeltown' bus, the LAST 'Campbeltown' bus being the Route 445 at 18.15, both of these services operating daily, again there are no Sunday bus services. "TUESDAY" - DAY 4) - Carradale (bus) - Saddell - Bellochantuy 4) After an overnight stay in Carradale - Take the 07.55 am Route 445, 'Campbeltown' bus, to Saddell village, it arriving there at about 08.15 am (or, if overnight in Campbeltown, then taking the early morning 07.00 am Route 300 Carradale school bus or otherwise the 09.30 Route 300 Carradale bus to Saddell village, arriving there at 07.25 am / 09.55 am) and, following the way-markers, cross Kintyre, via the head of Loch Lussa, to Bellochantuy - The 9 mile / 15½ kilometre walk might be accomplished in sufficiently short time to allow one to catch the 13.10 Campbeltown-bound Citylink bus at Bellochantuy and, having reached Bellochantuy, the following options open up "TUESDAY" - DAY 4a) - Bellochantuy - Gobagrennan - Peninver (bus) - Campbeltown 4a) If energy not flagging, take the 13.10 Campbeltown-bound Citylink bus from Bellochantuy into the start of the built-up outskirts of Campbeltown, arriving there about 13.25 and then, rather than leave the option till the following day, take the Gobagrennan road, going north, to the Peninver junction and bear east down to Peninver village - The 10½ mile / 18 kilometre section might be completed in time to catch the 17.15 Route 300 'Campbeltown' bus, the LAST 'Campbeltown' bus being the Route 445 at 18.45, both of these services operating daily, again there are no Sunday bus services. "TUESDAY" - DAY 4b) - Bellochantuy - Tayinloan - Gigha 4b) On Tuesdays only, there is a 13.25 Route 449 'Lochgilphead' service which goes north, via both the Gigha Ferry Terminal and the Portavadie Ferry Terminal, in Tarbert, right through to Lochgilphead - Take the 14.00 ferry to Gigha and, after an overnight stay on the island, either return to Tayinloan next day on the the 07.35 am ferry which only runs on schooldays and has a directly connecting Route 449 bus for Campbeltown, arriving there at 08.45 am - This gives one more time to traverse the Gobagrennan to Peninver part of The Kintyre Way, the returning bus connections to Campbeltown as in 4a) above. "WEDNESDAY" - DAY 5) - Tayinloan - Gigha - Bellochantuy (bus) - Gobagrennan - Peninver (bus) - Campbeltown 5) If deciding to stay overnight in Bellochantuy, or overnight in Campbeltown then, as in 4) above, the day may be spent exploring the Gobagrennan to Peninver part of The Kintyre Way, the Route 449 bus from Lochgilphead, running from Mondays to Fridays only, passing through Bellochantuy at about 08.30 am and arriving in Campbeltown at 08.45 am, it too connecting with the 09.30 Route 300 bus to Carradale and giving the options of walking north from Carradale to the Arran Car Ferry Terminal at Claonaig, see 8) below, or of walking The Kintyre Way back from Saddell to Bellochantuy, see 4) above, or walking from Carradale to Killean and Tayinloan, details for these these links and connections following below.

"THURSDAY" - DAY 6) - Campbeltown (bus) - Southend - Machrihanish (bus) - Campbeltown 6) After an overnight stay in Campbeltown - Take the 07.55 am Route 444 Southend bus to the very end of its route, arriving at Keil Gate about 08.18 am and then follow The Kintyre Way markers north to Machrihanish - Though the 21 mile / 34 kilometre walk is the very longest section of The Kintyre Way and the terrain not always easy, the walker has at least the chance of catching any one of three buses back to Campbeltown, the 17.55 Route 200, arriving in Campbeltown at 18.13; the 18.35 Route 442, arriving in Campbeltown at 18.53 or the very LAST BUS of all, the 22.35 Route 442, arriving in Campbeltown at 22.54, all three buses running daily, though, of course, there is no Sunday service. "FRIDAY" - DAY 7) - Campbeltown (bus) - Southend - Learside - Campbeltown 7) After an overnight stay in Campbeltown - Though on the Sustrans National Cycle Network, as Route 78, but not on The Kintyre Way itself - Take the 07.55 am Route 444 bus to Southend and then return by the eastern 'Learside' coastal road to Campbeltown - The approximately 14 mile / 23 kilometre walk on a reasonably surfaced, single track, public road via Macharioch, slightly shorter via Kildavie, is well worth the effort. and, "SATURDAY" - DAY 8) - Campbeltown (bus) - Carradale - Claonaig (bus) - Tarbert or Campbeltown 8) After an overnight stay in Campbeltown - Take the 09.30 Route 300 bus to Carradale and then, following the Sustrans National Cycle Network 'Route 78' signs, head north on the B842 for the Arran Car Ferry Terminal at Claonaig - The approximately 14 mile / 23 kilometre walk on a reasonably surfaced, single track, public road and one should arrive comfotably in time for the Route 448 bus from Skipness to Tarbert, it leaving Claonaig at 16.15 on schooldays, 17.44 on non-schooldays and Saturdays (no Sunday services) and arriving at Tarbert's Turning Circle at 18.10 - Walkers could then either take the 18.15 Route 926 Glasgow-bound Citylink bus homeward, it arriving in Glasgow at 21.15, or could choose to spend another night in Tarbert or elsewhere, the Glasgow-bound Citylink bus arriving in Inveraray at 19.25 and connecting with buses to both Oban and Dunoon. As stated earlier, there are a number of possible permutations of the itinerary here and, for those who feel they have missed out on something, the only section of The Kintyre Way not included in the 'outline itinerary' here, is the hill section of the walk, from Claonaig to Clachan, that easily enough remedied if, for example, the enthusiastic walker chose to come to the area a day earlier than suggested here and, having spent the 'Thursday' night in Tarbert, took the Route 448 bus from Tarbert to Skipness, it leaves Tarbert's Information Centre at 07.41 am on schooldays and at 08.13 am on non-schooldays and Saturdays (no Sunday services) and arrives at the Arran Car Ferry Terminal at Claonaig at 08.06 am / 08.38 am and then followed The Kintyre Way markers south and west, across the moorland, to Clachan village - The 10 mile / 16 kilometre walk could then be covered in time to catch, at latest, the 17.45 Route 926 Glasgow-bound Citylink bus back in to Tarbert, arriving there at 18.15.

WARTIME HERITAGE TRAILS - East Side of Kintyre - Campbeltown - Skipness - B842
Skipness Observation Posts - NR912575 and NR898573 Skipness Bombing Range - NR910574 - On the south side of the cemetery, a concrete arrow, now part overgrown but still well visible, points southwards to the start of what was the bombing range on the east side of Kintyre. Sunley's, an English company contracted to build all the new facilities out at Machnhanish for the RN Fleet Air Arm, were also assigned to build the area's observation posts. All these constructions were built in a highly recognisable type of red brick, an unfamiliar building material in Kintyre. D-Day Gunnery Range - Kilbrannan Sound - In the months leading up to the D-Day landings, Royal Navy ships conducted gunnery practice from Kilbrannan Sound onto remote areas in the Kintyre hills. The target was a small loch between Ballochroy and Crossaig. Up in Ballochroy Glen can still be found a sign warning 'persons entering' the area of danger of unexploded shells. Crossaig Observation Posts - NR838522 and NR833506 Crossaig Bombing Range - NR838522 and NR833506 - A Swordfish aircraft crashed on the beach at Crossaig, near Skipness, when using the bombing range. One of the WRENs working on one of the nearby observation posts managed to pull one of the airmen from the wreck but he did not survive the accident. 1 4 14

Carradale Observation Post - NR833817 - The original 1939-1945 lookout post was sited on the Castle Hill at Carradale golf course. This site is now used as a shelter for golfers, the post-war observation post consisted of underground rooms, situated on the Shore Hills and the bunker is still there. It was closed in 1992. Kildonan Road Block - NR780278 Glen Lussa House - NR763254 - Unoccupied at the time, the house was requisitioned as accommodation for The Women's Land Army. Twelve girls occupied the six bedrooms. Kilchousland Gun Emplacement(s) - NR752223 - These emplacements, obviously intended to protect the entrance to Campbeltown Loch, were never fitted out. However, German U-Boats were active off the coast and U-33 secretly visited Carradale in November 1939 but was spotted by a school bus user who 'phoned the navy control room in Greenock. HMS Gleaner sank the U-33 off Pladda in February 1940 while on an expedition to mine the approaches to the Clyde. Campbeltown - Boom Defence Depot - In November 1941 an anti-submarine boom was laid out across the entrance to Campbeltown Loch between Trench Point and Davaar Island. The 'boom' was a steel net, reaching 90 feet deep and about 2000 feet long. Two officers, three WRENs and twenty-two ratings serviced 'the boom'. It was removed in July 1945, a job which took several weeks to complete.

Clachan, Balinakill Hotel - This was once the country house of Sir William Mackinnon, co-founder of Keil Technical School for Boys that opened in Southend in 1915. In 1924 the school had moved to Helensburgh but, because of the threat of enemy action there, the pupils and staff took up residence in Balinakill House for the duration of the war.

WARTIME HERITAGE TRAILS - In and Around Campbeltown
Campbeltown War Memorial - This was erected by public subscription (over £3,000 was raised by some 2,000 subscribers) to commemorate Campbeltown men who gave their lives during WWI - 349 men were killed. The memorial was designed by architect Alexander N. Paterson and, after several years of prevarification about its siting, was finally unveiled on November 3, 1923 - After WWII, the names of the fallen were added to those fallen in WWI. Royal Hotel, Kinloch Road - Requisitioned in part as an officers' mess for the ASDIC (Anti-Submarine Detection and Interception Corps) trainees. On November 6, 1940, during the first of only two direct enemy attacks that Campbeltown experienced during the war, The Royal Hotel was partly destroyed by bombs from a single German plane. Two people lost their lives in the attack. Victoria Hall - Home to the Kintyre Territorial detachments of The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders since it was built in 1918, the Victoria Hall was requisitioned as accommodation for the ratings of the Rescue Tug Service based in Campbeltown during the war. The officers of the service stayed on two yachts moored in the harbour and kitted out for the purpose, the 'Minona' and the 'Majesta'. In November 1940, during the first enemy attack on Campbeltown, the Victoria Hall's clock tower was damaged and had to be demolished. The Rescue Tug Service Base was closed in December 1945. 3 0 30

Albert Halls, Kinloch Road - Belonging to the Lowland Free Church, the halls were taken over by Argyll County Council as the official centre for the Air Raid Precaution services (ARP). Here were held the stocks of equipment necessary for the protection of people during air raids or enemy attacks. Campbeltown's first 54 ARP wardens were appointed in August 1939. Kinloch Mission Hall, Kinloch Road - The hall belonged to the Free Church and in 1939 was taken over by Argyll County Council to become a gymnasium for displaced Grammar School pupils. For a little while the hall was a depot for the collection of sphagnum moss - an initiative of John (Jack) Craig of The County Garage. The moss was used for the making of surgical dressings for war hospitals. The depot moved to John Street and the hall became a centre for The Home Guard. Kinloch Park - In May 1942, a small parcel of land of the park (opposite the present-day Tesco supermarket) belonging to the Town Council was requisitioned by The Admiralty in 1942 for use by The Air-Sea Rescue Service. The Town Council was to receive 5 shillings (25p) per annum in compensation. Kinloch School - Millknowe and Dalintober - This school became the recipient of all the evacuee children that came to Campbeltown. These were both the so-called Government evacuees, evacuated on the Government scheme, as well as 'private' evacuees who had come under arrangements made by parents or guardians. According to the school log book, there were still evacuees attending in 1946. Lochend Free Church Hall - Now demolished, but at the time on the site of today's Tesco car park, this hall was also used as a training centre for the Rescue Tug Service. Dalintober/Lochruan Housing Scheme - Princes Street/High Street - In 1942, The Admiralty requisitioned this scheme of new council housing, whilst still in the process of being built. Renamed 'Nimrod B', the complex provided additional accommodation for Royal Navy personnel when the Grammar School became overcrowded. The scheme was released from Admiralty use in 1946. Dalintober Primary School, High Street - After the Grammar School had been requisitioned, the west building of Dalintober School, which was not in use, was made into eight classrooms for displaced pupils. Albyn Distillery Warehouse, The Roading - The basement of the distillery was temporarily requisitioned in December 1941 by Argyll County Council as an emergency mortuary. It was relinquished in June 1942. Longrow South - The 'Victory Club' for servicemen was situated on the south side of the street between today's chemist's shop and The Bank of Scotland. Locarno 'Middle' Café, Longrow - Now 'Gallerie 10', one of three cafés run by the Grumoli family. The Old Court (Police) House, 14-22 Bolgam Street - Owned by the Campbeltown Magistrates and The Town Council, this building, dating probably from the eighteenth century, was first a courthouse and then a prison, later a police station. In July 1940, The Women's Voluntary Service (WVS) opened it as a clubroom and canteen catering for some 100 military personnel every day and 150 men every evening. Mayfair 'Top' Café, 43 Main Street - Another of the three Grumoli-run cafés, it opened in 1938 and turned into a club for H.M. Rescue Tug Service officers. Argyll Arms Hotel, Main Street - Naval officers' mess. 3 1 31

White Hart Hotel, Main Street - Also used as a naval officers' mess. Lorne Street Church Hall - After the requisitioning of the Grammar School, the church hall was turned into classroom accommodation for Infants I and II and Primary classes I and II. Old Grammar School, Castleacres - Now the Community Education Centre, in April 1940 The Admiralty requisitioned the old Grammar School as theior main antisubmarine training and accommodation centre, HMS Nimrod. When this site became overcrowded more accommodation was requisitioned elsewhere in the town. Drill Hall and Armoury, Argyll Street -Following the requisitioning of the old Grammar School, this Territorial Army Hall became school accommodation for displaced pupils. Later a canteen opened here to supplement the clubroom and canteen in Bolgam Street. Territorial Drill Hall, Argyll Street - Used too as a canteen. Masonic Lodge, St. John Street - At first requisitioned for music and PT classes for displaced Grammar School pupils, the hall was later used as accommodation for naval personnel. Kirk Street (Highland Church) Hall - Belonged to The Kirk Session of The Parish of Campbeltown and, after the requisitioning of the Grammar School, became accommodation for displaced Primary III, IV and V pupils. Nissen Hut, St. John Street - Was erected for the ablutions of the occupants of the nearby Masonic Lodge. Picture House and Rex Cinemas, Hall Street - The Picture House, seating 640, was opened in 1913 and the 1,140-seat Rex in August 1938 - A fire in February 1944 temporarily closed the Rex until October that year. Nissen Hut, Hall Street - Erected on the east side of Hall Street as an engineering workshop for The Royal Navy. The New Quay - Training in anti-submarine warfare for The Royal Navy was originally carried out at HMS Osprey at Portland but, in August 1940, these facilities were badly damaged in a bombing raid. A new base, HMS Nimrod, was commissioned at Campbeltown and this was to become the navy's ASDIC instruction and accommodation centre. In October 1940, The Admiralty requisitioned The New Quay for naval purposes for a compensation of £125 per annum. In August 1943 another portion of The New Quay and Campbeltown's Town Slipway were also requisitioned for a signals' hut, the Town Council receiving an additional compensation of £25 per annum. Quarry Green, Kilkerran Road - Part requisitioned by The Admiralty, a Nissen Hut was erected as an engineering workshop-cum-diesel storage unit. Stronvaar House, Kilkerran Road - Owned by Mrs Margaret Merson, proprietrix of The Royal Hotel, this large private house was requisitioned by The Admiralty as a communications centre. It was also the scene of a tragic accident in December 1943 when Thomas Macdonald, a 16-year old messenger boy, was accidentally shot by a sentry when delivering a telegram, the boy dead by the time an ambulance arrived. North Park House, Kilkerran Road - Owned by His Grace, The Duke of Argyll and too requisitioned by The Admiralty.

Ardnacraig, Kilkerran Road - Another of The Duke of Argyll's houses, requisitioned by The Admiralty to provide accommodation for WRENs. Rifle Range (beside Bengullion Laundry) - The range, established some twenty years earlier for The Territorial Army, was used too by personnel from HMS Nomrod. Plantation, Kintyre Park - Requisitioned by Scottish Command in February 1943 for theerection of an ammunition shelter. Dalintober Pier - Owned by The Town Council since 1847, the pier was requisitioned by The Admiralty in September 1941 in return for £10 compensation per annum Then extended, the pier was used for mooring air-sea rescue launches. The Old Quay - Progressively requisitioned by The Admiralty as their needs developed - In February 1940, the stores and three offices; in May 1940, the north-west turnstile offices; in April 1941, The British Workmen's Coffee Rooms; in 1942, a small portion of the south-east end of the turnstile building and too, early on, a small hut for use as the Rescue Tug Service's administrative office. Belmount, Low Askomil - Commandeered by the Air-Sea Rescue Service for use as their headquarters, the launches operating from Dalintober Pier. Trench Point (Shipyard) House and land - Used by Boom Defence personnel for accommodation and storage. Askomil Walk and The Second German Air Raid - On February 9, 1941, the Askomil Walk took the full brunt of Campbeltown's second and last experience of enemy action. After attacking the Sranraer to Larne ferry, which survived, a group of enemy aircraft turned towards Kintyre and dropped eight mines in Campbeltown Loch, two exploding on land at the Askomil Walk. The house of the much respected A.I.B. Stewart, the town's procurator-fiscal, was almost completely demolished and Mr Stewart killed. 'The Bungalow', occupied by Frederick Pendle, engineer with The Campbeltown and Mid-Argyll Electric Supply Company (electricity coming to Campbeltown in 1935) was also destroyed and Mr Pendle too killed. Fifteen other people were injured and a large number of houses in the vicinity suffered varying degrees of damage as the enemy aircraft dropped bombs and incendiaries around the area. Drumore House, Glasgow Road - Requisitioned by The Royal Navy as a second military hospital, the other being the newly built Keil Hotel at Southend. Kilkerran Cemetery - The last resting place of many war victims who died in air crashes.

WARTIME HERITAGE TRAILS - From Campbeltown to Machrihanish - B843
Dalyvaddy Farm - Strath Airfield - NR677199 - When in 1933 civilian scheduled flights were started in Kintyre, this field, the Mitchell's field at The Strath, next to the old 1918 airfield, was the preferred landing place. An aircraft hangar and two other brick buildings erected beside Dalyvaddy Farm still survive. Drumlemble Radio Station - NR662188 - Erected by RN Fleet Air Arm to divert German bombers. Ugadale Arms Hotel, Machrihanish - This hotel, later called The Machrihanish Hotel, was built in 1898. The Fleet Air Arm requisitioned it as accommodation for their personnel. Machrihanish Air Station - The original Machrihanish airfield, constructed in 1918, had become disused after WWI. The flat land of The Laggan, between Campoeitown and Machrihanish, was perfect for an airfield and between 1940 and 1941 the English-based firm of Sunley's constructed a new airfield for The Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm, it called HMS Landrail. Over the war years it was to be home to over 200 air squadrons flying Swordfish, Chesapeakes, Blenheims, Masters and Fulmars and would become one of the three busiest front-line air stations in the UK. The base of convoy escort squadrons and anti-submarine squadrons, the airfield was closed in 1946. N.B. The Royal Navy 3 5 35

calls its aerodromes, like its on-shore buildings, as if they were ships. They are distinguished by being called by the names of birds - Landrail is another name for the corncrake. Machrihanish Gun Emplacement - NR650211 Machrihanish Observation Post - NR677199 - Built beside the site of the Fessenden Radio Mast. Davaar Island Observation Post - NR761206 - This post was built just beside the lighthouse but functionally was unrelated to the east coast bombing range.

Keil Hotel, Southend - NR676078 - In 1939 Captain James Taylor, a retired farmer, saw his newly built, 28-bedroomed, 'Keil Hotel' requisitioned by The Admiralty, based in Campbeltown, as a hospital. It would not open as a hotel until after the end of the war.

KINTYRE AT WAR : 1939 - 1945
Though the story of Kintyre's war can be read online in the ' Kintyre On Record' document archives, there are many who, because of the size of the document (over 300 mb) and slow internet speeds and connections, have been frustrated at their attempts to download the file from the scribd.com lists. The full contents of the "Kintyre At War : 1939 - 1945" file can be seen on scribd.com and an abridged list of the file's contents are also online, on the Kintyre On Record website where anyone interested can find details of how to order a copy of the complete, 400+ page long file on a CD, the file, written in Microsoft 'Word', a format which might also be viewed in one of the free versions of the 'Open Office' word processing program. Importantly, especially for those who have struggled with German dictionaries, there is a 60-page long collection of glossaries focusing on German military and naval terms and abbreviations and for that alone the file has already seemed to have been of great interest students and historians. 4 0 40

Bellochantuy - Argyll Arms Hotel - This was the site of an early war incident. Stray machine gun bullets from what was later thought to be an RAF plane hit a garage shed opposite the hotel. Although shell cartridges were found, it isn't clear why either a British or an enemy aircraft would have aimed at that target. 5 7 57

Bellochantuy - Cefoil Seaweed Factory, near Putechan - Remains of a seaweed factory opened in 1934 that was owned by Cefoil Limited based in Maidenhead. This factory processed seaweed into products of wartime value such as camouflage paint, parachute silk, cellophane paper etc. It was closed in 1942 and the production transferred to newly-built factories near Oban and at Girvan.

Tangy - Road Block - NR653278 - Roadblocks were under police control and only rarely manned. Tangy - Breackachy Radio Station - NR671268 - Above the Tangy road HMS Landrail erected a radio station matching the one at Drumlemble. This has now been converted into holiday cottages changing its appearance considerably. Tangy - Tangy Rd/Drumalea Farm - Dummy Airfield - NR668269 - A generator installation was set up to power a carefully positioned set of dummy airfield landing lights - NR667221 - which were lit up when enemy bombers were detected in its vicinity. This was installed to divert the enemy from the Fleet Air Arm installations at Machrihanish. The generator building was manned by a small group of Campbeltown-based men during the hours of darkness.

Many sources were used to compile this list and the information is as complete as possible at time of printing - Please remember that almost all of the sites in this list are now regarded as WAR GRAVES and should be treated accordingly - The only things that should be taken from the sites are photographs and the only thing left should be footprints. This list was compiled in August 2003 by Duncan Mc Arthur with much help from Bobby Duncan, Alistair MacKinley, Chris Blair, RAF Atlantic House, RAF Machrihanish, CAA Atlantic House and Campbeltown Registry Office and many thanks must also go to Alan Leishman of Ardrossan who must have spent hours in Edinburgh researching the various incidents.

WELLINGTON (HX420) February 17, 1943 - NR731291 - This aircraft crashed on Earsach Hill, above the Lussa Glen. Not much is known but not all the crew died in the crash. The survivors arrived at Drumgrave farm and were taken to hospital. Hopefully more details will be found soon. Some of this wreck still remains on the hill just below the cairn. Large amounts of ammunition are also on the site. The crash site is very difficult to get to owing to the amount of trees planted below the summit. The crew that are known to have died were J. Pool, pilot (died later from injuries), buried in Cheshire and Sgt Hoyle, navigator, buried in Leeds WHITLEY (P5041) January 23, 1941 - NR598094 - This aircraft crashed on The Mull of Kintyre. Little is known of the crash. Wreckage is scattered near a burn north of a later-crashed Neptune.

Billing, F/Lt., RAF; D. J. P. Bradley, ACM.; A. R. Hooker, Sgt. and H. Pilling, Sgt.. Most of the wreckage consists of small parts at the impact site however large immovable parts are imbedded in the banks of the stream including undercarriage parts etc. The aircraft is reported as having a full bomb-load which exploded on impact. The state of the wreckage bears this out. The aircraft also caught fire, again evident from the wreckage. Well up the stream from this site lies additional wreckage from the later-crashed Neptune. Most recently, on June 2, 1994, the CHINOOK HELICOPTER ZD576 crashed on the hillside above The Mull of Kintyre lighthouse - All four of its crew, F/LT Johnathan Tapper, F/LT Richard Cook, M/SGT Graham Forbes and SGT Kevin Hardie and all 25 of the aircraft's passengers were killed, a memorial cairn now erected near the site of the crash, a 145-page long 'Computer Weekly' report online at http://www.computerweekly.com/blogs/tony_collins/2008/06/chinook-zd576-a-rare-if-unique.html
