Argyll and Bute

4.3
Castles · Distilleries · Landmarks
The wild and rugged coastline of Argyll and Bute has provided many works of fiction, including the novels of Robert Louis Stevenson, with some very dramatic settings. With a history of ancient clan rivalries, this region still maintains its fierce spirit of independence and a deep respect for the old Gaelic culture. Nowhere is this more evident than in the region’s road signs, which are written in both Gaelic and English, with Gaelic place names often listed first. Though the region is separated from the mainland only by a narrow strait, much of it seems a world away from the rest of the country. Whether you only want to go to Argyll and Bute, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly United Kingdom trip planner.
