Our guide to West Scotland stretches from Stranraer (Dumfries & Galloway), taking in Ayrshire and Arran, Argyll & The Isles, and the Isle of Skye coast up to Durness.
There is so much to discover and so much to do here on the west coast that it is not something you can do in a two weeks, or even three, in fact many visitors return year upon year and explore new sections of the area from all over the world.
The highlands and islands are popular with many Scandinavian, German and other international visitors with the malt whiskies being one of the prime reasons for visiting the area. Other attractions include the stunning landscapes and clean air, professional and courteous hospitality and a superb blend of traditional and modern culture.
The highlands and islands include areas such as Loch Lomond, Inveraray, Kintyre and the islands such as Mull, Islay, Gigha and Jura which are all accessible by reliable and regular ferry travel.
The quality of accommodation throughout the west coast is very good indeed with many of the accommodation providers overlooking water, whether it is a natural harbour like Tarbert, perhaps sandy cove such as Dunvalanree, or alternatively with a section of private beach on the water's edge such as Ardmarnoch Estate
Due to the high volume of tourism, most if not all accommodation is kept exceptionally clean, and redecorated each year maintaining the high quality and cleanliness. Places such as Inveraray and Tarbert paint their buildings on the outside each year too. Browse Accommodation >
