If you are looking for a stunning place to visit with amazing beaches, majestic mountains, plentiful wildlife, and superb coastal vistas and then look no further than North Argyll. It was originally known as the Gateway to the Isles, the Capital of the West Highlands and then the Seafood Capital of Scotland, but I have lived here for over 20 years and to me it is the Adventure HQ for Scotland. Adventure in all its forms from exhilarating boat rides to remote wilderness, playful outdoor fun to amazing wildlife encounters. It is not a lie to say that this small area of Scotland really has it all and it is accessible to almost everyone, no matter how old or how active, there is something that will suit you if you want to explore, experience, voyage, venture, expedition, scramble, race or simply get away from the rest of the world.
'extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking’
So I started thinking back over the (almost) 20 years I have lived in Argyll and all the adventures I have had, trying to pick out the best and most wonderful experiences to share with you. It took me back to extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking and edge of the world mountain ridges. It makes me feel the wind in my hair, the sun on my skin, the exhilaration of reaching the top, the sheer joy of seeing wildlife and the peacefulness of feeling at one with nature and the sheer delight of a fire in a remote island spot.
