About Wee Toon Trail
Beinn Ghuilean dominates Campbeltown's skyline and it has some great mountain bike trails and walks. What are you waiting for..?
The Blue Trail offers easier cycling and fine views of Davaar Island and Campbeltown. Suitable for beginners & families, this 2.7km trail is an unsurfaced forest track, with easy climbs and descents.
The Red Trail will get your heart pounding and test your cycling skills. Suitable for proficient mountain bikers who are used to off-road cycling, this 2km trail is a little steeper and tougher with narrow (0.3m) track and technical sections.
Challenging climbs and descents lead in to berms, boardwalks, moderate steps, drop-offs and cambers.
- A map of the trails is in the Mid-Argyll cycling leaflet (PDF 2.7Mb)
Watch out for other forest users
Walkers are welcome on the trails too - so if you're cycling watch out for walkers and vice versa.
Why not start at the bike friendly Aqualibrium leisure centre? It only takes 20 minutes to cycle up to Beinn Ghuilean from the centre.
How to get there:
From the Main Street in Campbeltown, follow signs for the A83 to Machrihanish until you reach Witchburn Road.
After passing the Creamery turn left into Tomaig Road. At the end of Tomaig Road you will find a wooden gate into a field.
Cross in to the field using the style and follow the track through the fields, crossing two more styles to reach the woodland.
Please keep dogs in the lead while in the fields, taking care not to disturb the livestock.
