Situated at the head of Loch Awe in Argyll, this dramatic fortress dates from the 15th century. As well as the fascinating history of the castle which was the original power base of Clan Campbell, make sure to climb to the top of the tower battlements where you can rest for a moment and soak up the striking views across the loch and beyond to Ben Cruachan.
Whether it is dolphin spotting off the Moray Coast or catching a glimpse of a golden eagle souring high above the trees, enjoy a day of wildlife watching across Scotland. Make a day of it and head out into the countryside with your binoculars to see what you can spot. Or enjoy a relaxing boat tour to see what animals you can see off Scotland’s coast.
