View Self-Catering Holiday Cottages in Argyll and Bute

Argyll and Bute is an area of Scotland famous for its spectacular, mountainous scenery. It lies in the country’s west, with a rugged coast and a scattering of remote islands. The West Highland Railway Line runs through the area, from Glasgow to the coast, and various ferries run between the mainland and the islands of Mull, Iona, Arran and others. Argyll and Bute is an inspiring place to visit, with iconic whisky distilleries, pristine beaches, shimmering lochs, and incredible mountain views. Argyll and Bute holiday cottages are popular among wildlife watchers thanks to the abundance of rare birds and animals, including puffins, golden eagles, otters and red deer. Boat tours are an excellent way to explore the coast, with the chance to spot seals, basking sharks and dolphins.
