The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Argyll is both accessible and remote. Stretching from the outer limits of Glasgow to Ardnamurchan, the most westerly point in the UK, it is a region of stunning natural beauty, with an island-dotted coastline and picturesque towns.
With its pretty harbour, prominent landmarks such as the pink granite cathedral, Dunollie Castle, McCaig's Follie, and the proximity to the Western Isles , Oban – the Seafood Capital of Scotland – is not to be missed.
Mid Argyll, the often-overlooked countryside just south of Oban, and the long lush peninsula of Kintyre, offer the visitor everything from whisky distilleries, prehistoric stone circles and nature reserves, to spectacular sunsets.
Only a short distance away from Airdeny is Loch Etive, where you can take a boat trip to the head of the loch and watch seals and golden eagles. You can also visit Bonawe Iron Furnace, which was established in 1753 and is reputed to have made cannonballs used by Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar. Close by is Inverawe Smokehouse, which smokes fish in the traditional way and you can also catch your own trout and visit the shop and tearoom.
Oban, the Seafood Capital of Scotland, is 12 miles away and is the port for ferries to Mull, Iona and the other isles of the Inner Hebrides. There are excellent shops, first class restaurants, an indoor leisure centre, 18 hole golf course, all weather tennis courts and a bowling green.
Closer is Cruachan Power Station which is excavated from the heart of Ben Cruachan, where visitors are conveyed into the cavern from the visitors' centre by side of Loch Awe.
For those interested in wildlife, you can explore the marine world through 30 close encounter glass displays at the Sea Life Centre, or take a photographic safari with Philip Price of Loch Visions.
The drive to Seil Island takes you through beautiful countryside; crossing over the Bridge over the Atlantic. There you can visit Easdale Quarry, An Cala Garden and Folk Museum or go on a SeaFari adventure to Corryvrecken and Garvellach.
Inverary Castle, the seat of the Duke of Argyll, is only 35 minutes away and where you can also visit the award winning Inverary Courthouse and Jail complex.
If gardens are your scene, you can wander round Barguillean, Achnacloich, Ardchattan Priory, Crarae and Arduaine.
For walkers, there are Inverliever, Fearnoch and Glen Nant forests. Or, for those who like a challenge, Ben Cruachan is only a short distance away and well worth the effort to reach the summit.
Or, maybe just relax, enjoy the peace and quiet, the beautiful countryside and the magnificent views.
Whichever it is, Airdeny is the perfect place to do it.
