The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
This area of Scotland is known as Argyll, and is renowned for its wild and rugged scenery. Peppered with sea and inland lochs and miles of often remote coastline, it is a favourite area for visitors from all over the world.
Driving through the historic towns brings a variety of interesting curio shops, museums, places to eat and visitor attractions. Popular places include the living museum at Inveraray Jail, Inveraray Castle, the underground power station at Loch Awe, take a cruise on Loch Lomond or try Quad Biking at Quadmania overlooking Loch Long.
The area is also renowned for its food and produce, with Loch Fyne Oysters being just half an hour from Lochgoilhead, as well as the microbrewery Fyne Ales where you can visit their tap room and have a brewery tour.
Argyll offers a truly great variety of places to go and things to do.
Email us for a copy of our 17 page Destination Guide for Lochgoilhead. It covers everything you need to know about what is happening in the village as well as activities, restaurants, walks and touring in the area. There is much to tell about this special place. It is updated to make sure all the details are accurate.
Lochgoilhead is something special. It is fair to say that there is no place in Argyll that offers such a combination of easy access from central Scotland, a beautiful scenic loch and mountain location as well as a choice of restaurants, pubs, entertainment and a truly impressive range of indoor and outdoor activities. Yes, come and enjoy the views, but on those days when you want to get out and do something there are a great range of walks, options to get on the water and activities for adults and children. This is a deeply relaxing place, if you prefer you can leave the activities to others and just come and re-charge.
Due to the fact the village is at the end of the road, there is very little through traffic, couple this with good amenities at the local hotels leisure centre, the village is very popular with young families during the traditional holiday periods. The village has also become popular with retirees, many who visit to enjoy the tranquility, or have retired to the area, often having enjoyed decades of memorable holidays in the village.
While some never leave the glen during their stay, many use the village as base to explore the west coast, either down through the Kintyre Peninsula, or further west to the Oban area. Just over one hour north is magnificent Glencoe which was the Scottish setting in the latest Bond film, Skyfall, as well parts of the Harry Potter movies.
Whatever your choice, active or relaxed, Lochgoilhead is a wonderful place that often captures the hearts of those who visit.
