The Heart of Argyll offers walkers, bicycle-riders, horse-riders, golfers, dog lovers, bird-watchers, fishermen, photographers, water enthusiasts and adventurers a wilderness paradise for short breaks and family holidays.
From Knapdale to Loch Awe via Kilmartin Glen, the scenery unfolds in a series of beguiling panoramas. There are water-oriented activities too, including canoeing, kayaking, dinghy sailing, wildlife boat cruises and fishing, alongside more recent innovations such as quad-biking, kite-flying and beaver-watching.
For golfers, the little nine-hole gems at Lochgilphead, Tarbert, Gigha and Inveraray are great for all the family to enjoy, while further afield the mighty links at Machrihanish challenge the world’s best. For those in search of more traditional sporting pursuits, some of the finest stalking and game shoots in Scotland can be found in the Heart of Argyll.
The rich culture and heritage of the area will also delight many with its ancient Bronze Age sites, historic castles and a full traditional and classical music calendar and events programme.
