Make your 2018 New Year's resolution happen on Argyll’s Secret Coast!

Make your 2018 New Year's resolution happen on Argyll’s Secret Coast!
The beaches, mountains, sea lochs and forests of Argyll's Secret Coast combine to make the perfect setting for a whole host of adventures and challenges. Whether you vowed to get fit, learn a new skill or just spend more time in the great outdoors in 2018, you’ll find plenty of opportunities in this beautiful part of Argyll.

Walk the Cowal Way
The Cowal Way is a fantastic 57-mile long-distance route which begins at Portavadie on Argyll’s Secret Coast and ends at Inveruglas on the shores of Loch Lomond. In those 57 miles you’ll get a taste of everything the Highlands has to offer, with rugged terrain and glorious views from start to finish. There are ferry links to the Kintyre Way. Join the two together for an epic adventure!

Bike the Bealach
This circular ride may be only 30 miles in length but it's a tough one and only for fit, experienced cyclists. It includes the forebodingly named, frighteningly steep, and undeniably challenging Bealach Maim. It starts with a big climb out of Tighnabruaich to Glendaruel. Then it’s time to take on the Bealach. It will take all your determination to reach the top! The route continues to Otter Ferry and back to Tighnabruaich via Kilfinan and Millhouse. Find out more about the route.

Learn to kayak
Tighnabruaich Sailing School teams up with Sea Kayak Argyll to offer five-day sea kayak courses based at Carry Farm. Learn to kayak or improve your skills in this stunning location. The course dates for 2018 will be announced soon. Contact Phil at Sea Kayak Argyll for more details.

Set sail
Learn the ropes with a dinghy sailing course at Tighnabruaich Sailing School. With courses for adults and children, beginners and improvers, you’ll find something to suit. If you’ve never sailed before, by the end of the week they’ll have you confident in your ability to manage a boat in reasonable conditions. If you’re looking to develop existing skills, you’ll find the exciting coastal waters always provide varied learning opportunities.

Run or walk the Kyles 10 Miles
Take part in Scotland’s most scenic road run! Sign up for the Kyles 10 Miles which takes place on 8th September 2018. Rise to the challenge of a course that combines inclines, descents, long flat straights and spectacular scenery. From rolling hills leading to superb views of the Clyde and beyond, to welcome descents into woodland copses and secluded beaches, this run has it all. Entries will open in the next few weeks.

Saddle up
One of the best ways to discover Argyll’s Secret Coast is on horseback. With ancient woodlands, a stunning coastline, hills and moors, it’s the perfect place for a riding adventure. This year Wilder Ways is offering a fantastic range of trail-riding treks throughout Argyll's Secret Coast and beyond. Saddle up and get off the beaten track!

Go bikepacking
Have you heard about bikepacking? It’s all about exploring the backcountry on your bike, fully self sufficient. The new Wild About Argyll Bikepacking Trail has just been launched and it goes right through Argyll’s Secret Coast. At 655 km (407 miles) it provides an amazing cycling adventure on gravel tracks, forest roads, singletrail, quiet roads and cycle paths. It’s suitable for gravel and mountain bikes.
