The west coast of Scotland and the region of Argyll and Bute are home to some of the country’s most vivid and beautiful landscapes, and a stay at one of the coastal hotels makes for the perfect stop before jumping-off on a visit to the islands of the Hebrides.
From the grassy hills and famous waters of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park — the gateway to the Highlands — to the quaint fishing and port-towns like Campbeltown and Oban—home to famed whisky distilleries such as Oban Distillery—visitors will find that Argyll and Bute offers-up a grand serving of natural splendour and rich culture.
