Head off the beaten track and discover empty beaches, island gems and wildlife galore touring Kintyre and Argyll.

From Argyll’s Secret Coast to one of our favourite peninsulas, with a quick detour to the Isle of Gigha to boot. Spend a week off Scotland‘s beaten track, experiencing fabulous seafood, great hospitality, a Scottish island day-out and a couple of short but memorable ferry crossings. Look out for wildlife from seals to otters to eagles as you go.

Begin your Scottish journey with one of the country’s most scenic drives to a largely undiscovered corner by Loch Fyne. Then a short ferry crossing brings you to a jewel-like fishing village, before you plunge south on the finger of land that is the Kintyre peninsula, enjoying spectacular views across to the Isle of Arran. Your next base is in one of Kintyre’s cutest coastal villages. From here you could test out the local craft gin and enjoy lengthy beach walks. Next travel on to the iconic mull, made famous by Sir Paul McCartney. Then return north via the Isle of Gigha and finally to a destination restaurant-with-rooms for a gastro-treat in Knapdale.

Of course, this week-long trip is but a suggestion and can easily be tailor-made to suit your own requirements – perhaps extend with an overnight or two on Gigha or a stay further north in Argyll and its Isles?
