About the Argyllshire Coast

Argyll and the Isles are a rich blend of mesmerising coastal vistas, tranquil island havens, landscape marked by history and rich in culture and tradition.

With a larger coastline than France, this stunning area on the western side is at the heartland of sail and motor yacht cruising in Scotland. The coastline stretches from Appin down to the Mull of Kintyre, from where the coast of Northern Ireland is visible on a clear day - with excellent moorings, harbours and marinas, it is equally popular for day trips or longer cruises.

Along this coast lie the attractions of Tobermory on Mull, Iona, Colonsay, Jura, Islay, Coll, Tiree and Lismore as well as the entrance to the Caledonian Canal. Ther Celebrate scotland's proud traditions in spectacular surroundings at the Isle of Mull Highland Games in July or the Oban Games in August.

The Isle of Jura

Jura's peaceful golden beaches, relatively mild temperatures and striking seascapes make the Isle a favourite amongst sailors, especially Loch Tarbert on the western coast. Jura is a haven for wildlife and world renowned for its whisky.
