Ardnave Point


Directions: From Bridgend, drive towards Bruichladdich and follow the signs from the main road after Black Rock for Loch Gruinart Nature Reserve. At the reserve's visitor centre at Aoradh Farm, turn right at the sign to Ardnave. Follow the single track road all the way to the end until you see the loch on your left. The car park is on the grass on your right.

Walk: Follow the sandy track which takes you through the dunes on the western shore of Loch Gruinart, following signs to Ardnave Point. The views, especially from the high dunes, are stunning. You can see Killinallan Point, Jura, Colonsay and Nave Island, around half a mile from Ardnave Point. It’s a very quiet area where you can enjoy the sea, the views to other islands, the beaches, the dunes and the wildlife. Return along the same track, or complete the circular walk by passing the kissing gate at the sign on the hill near the grave, and cross the dunes. From there, keep walking over the grass until you reach a sandy track which will take you to Ardnave Farm. From there, you can see the loch and the parking place.
