Take a scenic walk through Kilmartin Glen as you encounter one of Scotland’s richest ancient landscapes, home to many monuments, of which 150 are prehistoric. Located between Oban and Lochgilphead and surrounding the village of the same name, Kilmartin Glen is considered to have one of the most important concentrations of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in Scotland.

Puck’s Glen is deservedly the most famous short walk on the Cowal Peninsula.
