Davaar Island
sits at the mouth of Campbeltown Loch.  The Island can be reached on foot by a stony causeway during low-tide, it is important to keep to the safe crossing times as listed in Reception. or can be obtained from the Tourist Information Centre, which is open all year round.  Not suitable for buggies.

Crossing the causeway takes about 45-50 minutes in one direction.   Allow for this on your return journey with the safe crossing times which are available from the Tourist Information Centre in Campbeltown.. The tide comes in very fast!!

Causeway appears at low-tide, allow plenty of time to cross

Painting of the Crucifixion in the 7th cave

On reaching the Island, go to the caves on the right, the painting of the crucifixion is in the seventh cave along.
Because of the rocks, it takes a good 30 minutes to reach the caves. Stout firm fitting shoes are a must as it is very rocky, best suited for those with good health and agility.

However, the walk across the causeway to the Island itself is very pleasant, you get a good view of Campbeltown from it's shores.  An easier stroll round to the left of the island (best to use the track) towards the Lighthouse gives you a good view of Arran
.


DO NOT  ATTEMPT TO REACH THE LIGHTHOUSE FROM THE CAVES,
IT IS VERY DANGEROUS AND EXTREMELY ROCKY.
