Argyll & the Isles

Explore, plan and book with Wild Scotland


On the west coast are myriad Inner Hebridean islands from Canna and Colonsay to Tiree and the Treshnish Islands, each unique and visually stunning and perfect for an adventure getaway and some wildlife watching.

This magnificent region of Scotland takes you from white sandy beaches and rugged coastlines to dramatic and mountainous vistas on the mainland. If adventure is what you are looking for then you will not be disappointed - from sea kayaking, coasteering and SUP to diving and snorkelling, wildlife watching, walking, cycling and boat trips there really is something for everyone and all abilities.

The Isle of Mull, and the adjacent mainland, are excellent places to watch otters, white-tailed and golden eagles and some of Scotland’s tamest puffins on the Treshnish Islands. This is also one of the best places in Britain to see basking sharks and minke whales.

On Jura, the island of red deer, there’s true wilderness and, on neighbouring Islay, there are choughs, otters and see tens of thousands of wintering arctic geese.

Oban in Argyll is the gateway to these islands, and is also a destination in its own right.
Western oakwoods near Lochgilphead and Glasdrum are real temperate rainforest and the Mull of Kintyre has a wild and beautiful coastline.
