Ardgartan Argyll is the perfect base for a Scottish walking holiday, from a gentle lochside stroll which begins at your cabin door to more strenuous hikes within the Argyll Forest Park. Surrounding our cabins are the Arrochar Alps, a glorious mountain range where you can bag as many as 5 munros. Further afield, explore Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, with wonderful walks and more challenging climbs.
There are miles and miles of cycling routes surrounding our cabins at Ardgartan Argyll. Cycle round lochs, through woods and on mountains. Enjoy long pleasurable trips, with a picnic or a pub stop, or take your mountain bike, up and down glens, with arduous climbs and sweeping descents.
Our local is the Village Inn at Arrochar, where you can enjoy freshly cooked food, local ales and a large garden for those sunny days. For a more refined treat, head north to the Loch Fyne Restaurant and Oyster Bar, where you will be eating oysters fresh from the loch that the restaurant overlooks.
Inveraray is not to be missed; climb Dun Na Cuaiche for the spellbinding vista of the village and castle below. For a seaside trip, visit Helensburgh, which has great shopping and The Hill House, an architectural gem by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, one of the finest private houses ever built. Closer to your cabin, spend a lazy afternoon village-hopping around the lochs, discovering Ardentinny, tucked away on the edge of Loch Long or Lochgoilhead, with its spectacular mountain and loch views. The pretty conservation village of Luss is also under 20 minutes away.
Ardgartan Argyll sits on the shore of Loch Long, a Scottish sea loch where you can fish, canoe or collect mussels for supper. A short drive away is Loch Lomond, Scotland’s largest freshwater loch, best enjoyed from the deck of a Loch Lomond cruise boat. For a peaceful afternoon that gives you a unique view of the Scottish landscape, take a boat out on Loch Lomond or Loch Goil. Head north to Loch Fyne, for spectacular views, Inveraray town and castle, and local oysters. This is just a tiny selection of the lochs you can enjoy in this rugged landscape.
