Combining stunning scenery and island paradises, Argyll & The Isles is the ideal area to escape amid awe-inspiring landscapes. Located on the west coast of Scotland, the region is home to 23 inhabited islands, each offering tranquil beaches and their own unique island cultures, while the rugged vistas on the mainland are guaranteed to take your breath away. With seven National Nature Reserves (and many more parks, gardens and wild spaces in between), Argyll & The Isles is one of the best places in Scotland to see iconic wildlife, including golden eagles, red deer, otters, seals, puffins and more.
Explore gorgeous white sandy beaches, stargaze at the night sky, try out world-class watersports, taste delicious single malt whiskies, explore Scotland's Adventure Coast, and many more fascinating experiences await you across the region. Uncover miles of spectacular scenery along the Caledonia Way, or explore the area's 'secret coast' on the stunning Loch Lomond and Cowal Way walking trail.
Don't miss the Cowal Highland Gathering's 3-day event from 27 August which this year is virtual! Join in the fun here.
