Cowal Way new edition

Cowal Way cover

Following major route improvements funded by the Coastal Communities Fund, we have finalised our new edition of the Cowal Way guidebook. It will be released in mid-April, but you can pre-order now, or ask to be notified upon publication. This edition has large-scale mapping by Footprint (1:50,000) which lets you see whether the route is on roads, tracks or path. Its text has been throughly updated, there are fresh photographs and more detail on facilities and terrain.
