Argyll & The Isles

Castle Stalker in Loch Laich


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 and see Argyll.
