The newly-unveiled Kintyre 66 (K66) tourist route sparked the imagination of our regular contributor Ann Thomas.

The Tarbert artist this week ponders the possible traffic implications for visitors drawn to the beautiful route.

The Kintyre 66 – described as ‘Scotland’s answer to Route 66 – is a circular loop taking in the unspoilt west and east coasts of the Kintyre peninsula from Kennacraig to Campbeltown, adding up (more or less) to 66 miles depending on the places visited.

Explore Kintyre and Gigha tourism and marketing group, the people behind the initiative, asks visitors to be mindful of other road users while enjoying the region’s many attractions.
