Discover Argyll and Bute

Scotland is renowned for its whiskies. Argyll and Bute is home to many of Scotland's best distilleries and a visit to them is both educational and entertaining. Skills that have been passed down through generations, as well as the untouched environment and pure waters throughout the region, all contribute to the area's amazing whiskies. The isle of Islay is home to nine of these distilleries, including Bowmore, which is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. They all welcome visitors, offering guided tours and a dram (a small drink) of local whisky. Many of the places in Argyll and Bute have their own distillery, including the minute Isle of Jura, explaining its notoriety as the Whisky Coast. 

With so many islands and coastal landscape around Argyll and Bute, it would be hard not to get involved in some outdoor activities whilst there. Typical pursuits such as walking, cycling, horse riding and golf are all great ways to experience the beautiful natural landscape. However, the coast begs for water lovers. With an abundance of sea lochs and reefs to explore, water activities are a fantastic option. Try sea diving in the clearest waters of Scotland and visit the wreck of The Hispania, off the coast of Mull, which is surrounded by sealife. Sailing and kayaking are both great ways to discover untouched beaches and secret islands around the coast. The isle of Tiree also holds the Tiree Wave Classic, a fabulous windsurfing event. For those seeking something extra-special, there are guided boat tours that allow you to swim with the basking sharks deep in the sea. 

Scottish history is seen all over the region. There are too many castles, historic sites and ruins in Argyll and Bute to mention, making it a great place for lovers of culture and history. The home of Clan MacDougall, Dunollie Castle, is a great monument looking over Oban Bay. Kilmartin Glen is home to more than 800 ancient ruins, from the Bronze and Neolithic Ages; a great place for those interested in archaeology. For architecture that is more recent, Bute is home to many Victorian houses with stretching gardens, such as Mount Stuart. 

 Visiting the mysterious inlands of Argyll and Bute, with monuments and ruins that have survived thousands of years, or exploring the distilleries seeped in Scottish heritage are great ways to spend a day. A plethora of adventures await nature lovers and thrill-seekers. With too many activities to mention in Argyll and Bute, a visit there is guaranteed to never be boring.
