Argyll and Bute is in West Scotland. This area is made up of Argyll, the Isles, Stirling, the Trossachs and Loch Lomond and it's just perfect if you love fresh air and the great outdoors!

The area offers visitors amazing clean beaches, forests, gardens, islands and wildlife interspersed with activities such as golf, sailing, hiking, camping, exploring villages and towns, water sports, diverse marine, wild and bird life of which several species are endangered and therefore rare.

The islands lend a romantic air to the area tinged with mystique. There's so much to enjoy here from the freshly caught fish and seafood to the prime distilled whisky, top class hotels and golf courses, over a hundred species of birds and rare, spectacular orchids. There is something here for all the family to enjoy and the historic sites range from castles to houses where the clan heritage will entertain and intrigue.

Shopping is great too! There are many designer outlets, boutiques and mainstream centres to enjoy along with spas, arts and crafts, gyms, cinemas and live music events.
