Visitors to the region will also discover a vast amount of great sporting activities to enjoy, from hiking Munros to windsurfing off the shores of Tiree. Whatever your interests, Argyll and Bute is certain to provide.
Visit the Achamore Gardens on the Isle of Gigha
All-in-all there are 25 inhabited islands in Argyll and Bute, and one of the smaller ones is the Isle of Gigha, which is only about 14 km² with a resident population of 160 people. The island is, however, well known for the Achamore Gardens, a sprawling 54 acre garden set in a mature woodland that boasts an impressive collection of rare rhododendron plants and would make a delightful visit for anyone with a green thumb.
