Activities in the Area
We can advise on days out suitable for sunny, dry, or wet weather.
The Royal Burgh of Inveraray with its fairy tale castle and Victorian jail is well worth a visit and a walk up to the lookout tower provides incredible views of Loch Fyne and the town.
If you choose to eat in Inveraray, do go to The George as it is very, very good.
A unique and special place steeped in history, with its museum, church with the burial stones of the Scottish chieftains and Dunadd castle where legend says the first Kings of Scotland were crowned. Read more »
A circular drive up the west coast, amazing scenery up to Ballachulish and through to Glencoe village, call in at the visitor centre to learn about the infamous battle in Glencoe between the Campbells and the MacDonalds, drive through the Glen and be awed by the splendour. If you have time, park up and walk through the hidden valley, wonderful!
From Taynuilt - up Loch Etive towards Glencoe, a two hour journey, abundant in wildlife, especially the seals.
From Oban - Coastal Connections Boat Trips (covered with glass, so suitable for any weather) the 2 hour Castles and Wildlife trip is recommended.
Isle of Seil
Drive south down the coast road to Seil, to the Bridge over the Atlantic to Ellenabeich. Visit the Museum, hear the history of the slate mining and the terrible storm which ended the industry.
Seafari run wild life boat trips to the Corryveckan whirlpool, these are on high powered ribs, very good.
There is a crazy golf course here also.
I could go on but hopefully this has whetted your appetite to come and stay and be awed by the scenery, the wildlife and the remoteness and of course the food and accommodation we offer.
We look forward to meeting you!
