Oban is the “Gateway to the Isles” with ferries leaving for Mull & Iona, Coll, Tiree, Colonsay, Lismore Kerrera and the Outer Hebrides. The area of Argyll has much to offer for all ages and interests. To the North there is the Sea Life Centre at Benderloch; the famous “Hollow Mountain” at Cruachan is home to a hydro scheme built deep into the mountain and a reservoir high above – a unique attraction for all the family. To the South is Kilmartin Glen, an area rich in historical legacy, offers over 350 ancient monuments to find and explore. The marvelous countryside, stunning scenery and sea views provide great opportunities to spot wildlife: deer are on the hillside, eagles soaring high in the sky and seals bobbing in the sea. Argyll is fantastic for walkers and climbers with many hill and mountain ranges within the area. Coastal walks provide great bird watching opportunities, places to launch a canoe/kayak or to try your hand at a spot of sea fishing. There are a number of local golf courses within easy reach.
