And further to my last post I can’t resist commenting on the woeful condition of the Cowal Way. I’m not expecting it to be a manicured path with steps and railings (in fact I would hate it to be like that), but at the moment it is hardly a path at all, and the guide poles are so widely spread out in places as to provide very little help for someone trying to follow it. I’ve noticed this both on the Lochgoilhead to Strachur leg and in the other direction out towards Artgarten, and it’s a shame because it has the potential to be just as nice as the West Highland Way.
The picture shows a typical stretch of the ‘path’ near Beinn Bheula.
