    Visit a new Island

    Well, new to you!

    Argyll has 25 inhabited islands – more than any other region in the country. Cal Mac run regular ferry services to most of these islands, meaning you can visit as part of a day trip. Add to this the rich history that these islands possess, and the fact there’s so much to explore, and it’s easy to see why this is an essential ‘to-do’ when visiting the area. Visit the Cal Mac website for a full list of destinations.

    Bag a Munro

    Up for a challenge?

    Climbing a mountain is one thing, but in Scotland there are 282 mountains with a summit of more than 3000ft, including 19 right here in Argyll & the Isles.  These can be tricky to navigate but are certainly rewarding when you get the views from the summit.

    If you fancy something a little more challenging, then we also have various long distance routes near our holiday parks, including the Cowal Way and the West Highland Way.
