Kilmartin is famous for its density of prehistoric monuments and historical sites in Scotland. Its fascinating archaeology attracts many history lovers. Beside history attraction, the area within The Heart of Argyll offers some beautiful short forestry walks. You can find one of them at Crinan. This trail starts from picturesque Crinan Harbour and ascends to Castle Dounie, an Iron Age Fort on a high hilltop above Crinan. There are panoramic views over the Crinan basin and across the sound to Jura and Scarba, divided by the famous Gulf of Corryvreckan and its whirlpool.
