Scotland and scenic drives, they just go together. Explore Argyll, and further afield, on a choice of tours. Lochgoilhead and the Cowal peninsula are well placed to use as a base for exploring Scotland. These scenic drives are here to give you a mix of the iconic places to go, such as Glencoe, Oban and Edinburgh, but also on a local level - places that new visitors would have to dig deep to find out about. Driving times are different in Argyll. It may not look far on the map, but you may find a fair bit of your journey is on single track roads. That is no bad thing. Plan to take time for stopping to enjoy the views, call in to a cafe or gallery, have a walk,or take a picture of the highland cows. Like all info on my website, these suggestions are my suggestions. The drives are based on years of answering guest questions about where to go and what to see. If you are touring Cowal then be sure to pick up a copy of the Dunoon & Cowal Map. It is Free and is available in the tourist information office and many other outlets around the area. All the tours start and finish in Lochgoilhead - you can of course join at any other point along the route. Tips: Take a map. The descriptions on the tours are to give you a flavour of what to expect - they are not written like a SatNav. Opening times - some of the visitor attractions are seasonal. Best to check on their website for up to date information. Have a great day out.
