Argyll and Bute Holiday Guide

The Argyll and Bute region of the Scottish Highlands is made-up of the lower western coast and the majority of the Inner Hebrides, making it the perfect destination for anyone looking to explore a mix of scenic seascapes, national parks, and the famous Scottish lochs. Though it is not home to any major cities, the region is replete with quaint villages and towns where you can find places to stay, and take advantage of all the adventurous activities on offer. From boating and windsurfing, to trekking and visiting historical sites, all are within about a half-day's travel from the city-centre of Glasgow.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park

The bonnie banks of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park lie at the eastern border of Argyll and Bute, just north of Glasgow, and their stunning waters and surrounding mountains make for the perfect gateway to the Scottish Highlands. Visitors will soon discover some of the country’s best trekking, camping, watersports, horse-riding, and golf courses, including the world famous Loch Lomond Golf Club. For Foodies, the region is also home to some of Scotland’s best rustic style dining, and the restaurants feature romantic loch-side views.

Stay in the Harbour and Fishing Town of Oban

Whether you’ve travelled by car or train, the trip north from Glasgow along the banks of Loch Lomond and then west towards the coast is one of Scotland’s finest. It features sights like snow-capped mountains and the ruined loch-side Kilchurn Castle, before the landscape opens dramatically upon the fishing town of Oban. Oban provides travellers to Argyll and Bute the perfect mix of comfort and seaside beauty, with a variety of hotels, guesthouses, and B&Bs that can easily be booked using the Expedia search tool.

Oban is not only a great place to explore the surrounding region from, but the town is also home to some of the best fresh seafood in Scotland, the famous Scotch Whiskey producing Oban Distillery, and a variety of historical sites like McCaig’s Tower and Dunstaffnage Castle.

Discover the Inner Hebrides

The town of Oban makes for the perfect jumping-off point to Scotland’s Inner Hebrides, which are a haven for wildlife along with dramatic and breathtaking views of the landscape, its castles and the sea.

The easiest of the Inner Hebrides to reach from the mainland, is the Isle of Mull, which is famed for its colourful town of Tobermory, where legend tells that one of the boats of the Spanish Armada sank in 1588 carrying gold. You might not strike it rich in Mull, but you will discover medieval and baronial castles at Duart and Loch Buie, and at Torosay and Glengorm respectively, along with pristine beaches and sandy coves that make for perfect spots to relax on sunny days.

For an even more remote and isolated adventure, take a trip to the Inner Hebrides' outermost island, the Isle of Tiree, will bring holidaymakers to a gently rolling landscape of rich, verdant machair, and serene beaches. Find a hotels and guesthouses on this pretty island, where you can eat fresh seafood, explore the terrain or head into the water, as Tiree is one of the world’s premier destinations for windsurfing.
