    This is a short-and-sweet coastal walk that takes you to the most spectacular megalithic monument on the Kintyre Peninsula and the lowest trig point in Scotland. With 9.77 miles (15.7 km) of distance, 275 feet (84 m) of uphill and 325 feet (99 m) of downhill, this is an easy hike. The itinerary gets much harder from this point onwards, however.The stage begins along Tarbert Road. Whilst there is a pavement for the most part, traffic travels quite fast so take care. You then take a footpath to the right, head along the coast past Corriechrevie Beach and continue on the road. A short-step later, it is worth a brief detour to see the mystical Ballochroy Standing Stones, three magnificent stones that ancient people used to frame the winter and summer solstices.The trail soon veers away from the road, continues down a grassy track and heads along a stretch of shingle beach to Rhunahaorine Point, where you get fine views of the Island of Gigha and see the lowest trig point in Scotland.The rest of the stage continues along the shingle with fantastic views and stunning birdlife displays to the Tayinloan Ferry terminal, where you take the road into the village itself. Here, you find some accommodation, a shop, and a cafe beside the ferry.
