Argyll & The Isles
Argyll is where it all began. This is the cradle of the royal seat of Dál Riata. Here, on the rugged western edge of the Highlands, Scotland was born. The region is home to 23 inhabited islands with tranquil beaches and specific island cultures. The mainland mountain ranges will inspire a sense of awe and the Nature Reserves are the best places to see wildlife, including golden eagles, red deer, otters, seals, puffins and more. White sandy beaches, romantic castles, delicious whiskies and many more fascinating experiences await you across the region. For a fascinating time in the Highlands: Go Argyll!
Although the featured attractions, sites and landmarks are always chosen by me, I have made a serious effort to differentiate 4 levels:
- (***) This is, for whatever reason, a very personal favourite! Will definitely be on my itinerary! Could possibly be disappointing for someone else though.
- (**) A major must-see tourist attraction that you can find in many a brochure.
- (*) Worth seeing and possibly interesting if you happen to be in the vicinity.
- (-) A hefty dollop of imagination is a must, but it might be interesting if you know the background.
