Argyll and Bute

The Argyll and Bute region has been a favourite with holidaymakers for years and it’s easy to understand why with so much beautiful countryside, lochs and coastline to admire.

The extensive choice of holiday cottages in Argyll and Bute provide the perfect base for great outdoor breaks, lovers of breath taking views and those who simply enjoy relaxing holidays!

With miles of unspoiled coastline, fantastic gardens, a wealth of history and heritage and lots of fantastic opportunities to get out and about amongst lovely countryside, there’s so much on offer here it can be tricky to decide where to spend your days.

The region is perfect for walkers and cyclists who want to escape into an unspoilt landscape of mountains, forests and lochs and its extensive coastline offers visitors plenty of opportunities to get onto the water; there is excellent sailing, kayaking, surfing and windsurfing.

You’ll find holiday cottages that aren’t exactly short of beautiful surroundings that are literally right on the door step, for example take some of Argyll’s stunning gardens such as Benmore Botanic Garden, which has an incredible mountainside setting and a world-famous horticultural collection, including a stunning array of flora from all over the world or Inverary Castle Gardens and stately home on the edge of Loch Fyne covering 16 acres.

Of course whisky plays a large part of Argyll and Bute’s heritage so it goes without saying that a visit to the Oban Distillery is well worthwhile. Learn all about single malt production on the tour then maybe sample a wee-dram afterwards!

If you’re looking for something a little more active then drop by Stramash Activity Centre where you can enjoy lots of adventure and activities including kayaking, mountain biking, orienteering and more.

The lodges are nestled throughout 7 acres of scenic wooded hillside in the peace and calm of Lerags Glen. Only three miles from Oban town centre, the ’gateway to the isles’, this picturesque harbour town is the unofficial capital of the West Highlands. Oban means ’little bay’ in the old Gaelic tongue and with its many attractions, shopping facilities and fine eating establishments, known as ’the seafood capital of Scotland’, it is ideal for those wishing to relax and explore. The town was first made popular in the time of Queen Victoria. She called it ’one of the finest spots we have seen’ and from the early 1800s, visitors flocked to the place aboard the Comet steamship which linked Glasgow and Oban. The Inner Hebrides consist of Kerrera, Lismore, Mull (with the small town of Tobermory which has become famous as ’Balamory’) and the granite mountains of the Morvern Peninsula. Beyond them are Coll, Colonsay, Tiree and Iona. All are accessible to visitors through organised trips. Ferries to the islands run regularly. There are lots of activities for all the family, ranging from an exciting boat trip, a visit to Oban Distillery or any one of thirty spectacular gardens, to the Atlantis Leisure Centre with its water slides, the intriguing Oban War and Peace Museum, and the The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary, a spectacular aquarium with a busy rescue facility for abandoned seal pups. Over 50 natural marine displays with talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day every day. Discovering the surrounding countryside is fun - horse riding at one of Oban’s many riding schools or perhaps take in a round of golf at Oban’s 18-hole golf course. Oban’s tourist information centre in Argyll Square is a great place to find out what’s going on in the area during your stay. Take to the clear waters around Oban and Lorn for sailing, sub-aqua diving, canoeing and sea angling, or cruise to the head of Loch Etive for a unique experience. Lagnakeil’s well-appointed lodges and cosy cottages are set in a haven of tranquillity that is guaranteed to revitalise the most world-weary guest.
