Wild about Argyll

4 days / 3 nights

Cost: £450 includes all transport from Glasgow return, B&B accommodation, a ferry trip

and guided hikes. Excludes food and drinks other than breakfast. Budget option available too - (see in details below).

Argyll is a beautiful, unspoilt region, bypassed by the majority of tourists as it is tucked out of the way, not en route to most popular hotspots. Therefore it is worthy to visit to enjoy the tranquility and the wildness of the place, characterised by rugged hills, long sea lochs and inland waters, with a fine coastline. It’s absolutely oozing with history from a vast number of Neolithic sites to the fortress at Dunadd, the forerunner of Scotland as a single nation. Also we have a gem of a B&B to take you to on a private estate.

Everytime I travel to Argyll, I wonder why it’s not much more popular. And that is its charm: the unspoilt beauty and tranquility. Matched with this is a great find of a luxury B&B at Kirnan on a private estate, right in the heart of so much to see, which provides our single base, helping to slow the pace.

This ‘Tour & Trek’ will include the following:

  • A visit to the Isle of Gigha noted for its lush landscapes and tranquility.

  • Making some sense of the mysterious beliefs of the Neolithic age in Kilmartin Glen dating back 5,000 years ago. This has the greatest proliferation of standing stones, burial cairns and ring and cup marked rocks in one area of anywhere in Europe.

  • A hike upto a hillfort on top of a summit overlooking this beautiful coast.

  • Visit to St Columba’s cave and an ancient Chapel with a collection of exquisitely engraved stone slabs with Celtic motifs. Through site and situation, we’ll gain an insight into the early Celtic Christian movement that has a revived contemporary appeal due to its connection with nature.

  • Ascent to Dunadd hill fort, where the kings of the ancient Scot’s Kingdom of Dalriada were crowned by placing their foot into an engraved footprint on the summit rock, symbolising their marriage to the land.

  • Walks along coasts, to castles, through woods and beside lochs and rivers.

There are other options to see and do, which can be planned in. Such as:

We will sample local foods at different inns and restaurants in the evenings. The B&B also has hot tubs, a barbeque built into an attractive shed lined with deerskins and an honesty bar, so you’ll also want to unwind at the end of a day in this welcoming haven.

Basic Rates: £450pp when sharing a double room in the B&B, including all transport and guiding and a ferry trip. Single room occupancy is £540

Budget Rate: We offer a budget option to the B&B with accommodation at a nearby hostel on the shores of Loch Awe at £390pp sharing a twin room, including the full Roaming Scotland package. For single occupancy of a room, the rate is £465.
