Why Argyll and Bute?



Situated on the Scottish west coast, Argyll and Bute is one of the most stunning and diverse areas in the country.  We have 3,000 miles of coastline, six main towns and 25 inhabited islands.

Argyll and Bute Council area is divided into four distinct areas – Bute and Cowal; Helensburgh and Lomond; Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Islands and Oban, Lorn and the Isles.  Each area has its own unique character and culture and all offer a wealth of beautiful locations and venues for your perfect day.
