Welcome to Argyll, The Isles, Loch Lomond & Trossachs
Wonderfully unspoilt area of Scotland
Coastal and Highland landscapes combine in Argyll alongside a rich culture and heritage and stunning scenery. Enjoy the mighty towering peaks, deep lochs and glorious gardens and the small unique islands of its coast. Thrill-seekers can try a range of adventure sports while forest strolls are perfect for those looking for something a little gentler, and you can experience the tranquility of island life. Explore charming towns and villages, look out for wildlife and enjoy clear waters and empty beaches.
Heritage plays a large part in the background to this area often referred to as the Cradle of Christianity and dramatic castles still guard the coastline and lochs along amazingly scenic roads.
Oban - the Gateway to the Isles, where ferries leave for neighbouring islands, is also known as the Seafood Capital of Scotland and from here you can follow the seafood trail to Inverary by Loch Fyne. Clear waters nurture some of the finest oysters, langoustines and lobster which can be washed down with a warming malt from the 'whisky coast'. Quaint fishing villages pepper the coastline and glorious gardens flourish in the temperate climate. All around a wealth of wildlife flourishes in pristine habitats both on land and in the lochs or sea.
Whether it is a gentle stroll amid stunning seascapes, sailing, kayaking or surfing, fishing or exploring the wonderful cycling around the lochs and glens, Argyll is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. And all this coupled with wonderful wildlife including seabirds and birds of prey such as nesting eagles.
This wonderfully unspoilt area of Scotland is a delight to get to and once there, ferry hopping to fascinating islands is easy. From the south there are good motorway links leading to picturesque routes through striking landscapes.
