For hundreds of years Scotland has been attracting visitors who come to absorb the scenic beauty of this northern country, and those wishing for their own picturesque escape will find no better region to head than Argyll and Bute. From your hotel door you’re not only bound to discover a wealth of pristine natural landscape, from towering Munros and forested parks, to stately cities and sandy coastline, but you’ll also discover a wealth of great activities and attractions. For those interested in history, a visit to Iona Abbey, the first Christian site in Scotland is an awe-inspiring pilgrimage, or, if you happen to enjoy something more metropolitan, then a visit to the Oban Distillery, makers of fine Scotch whisky since the 18th Century is sure to be a joy.
Visit the Ascog Fernery and Garden On the Isle of Bute
One of Argyll and Bute’s most notable features is its stunning coastline, which absorbs the warming effects of the Gulf Stream to create an environment perfect for many plants. Because of this, visitors to the region will discover a number of abundant gardens, including the Ascog Fernery and Garden on the Argyll and Bute. From exotic perennials to red Chilean fire trees, the Ascog garden burgeons with life. Its central piece is a Victorian Fernery fed by natural spring and housing a Todea Barbara or King Fern that is over 1,000 years old.
