1 AN CEANN MOR
Argyll Coastal Route
Visit An Ceann Mor, a purpose-built viewpoint at Inveruglas, to get a sense of the sheer size and beauty of Loch Lomond. Climb up the wooden pyramid to the platform at the top to enjoy splendid views across the UK’s largest expanse of freshwater and to the hills and mountains beyond. The loch, which stretches from Balloch in the south up to Ardlui in the north, lies on the western edge of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Home to a wealth of fascinating wildlife, majestic Munros and lush glens, the park is bursting with a host of amazing activities and experiences to enjoy.
 
2 LOCH FYNE RESTAURANT & OYSTER BAR
Argyll Coastal Route
  
PREVIOUSNEXT
Wind your way west through Tarbet and Arrochar to Loch Fyne. Be sure to stop by the original Loch Fyne Restaurant & Oyster Bar for a meal, or pick up something tasty from the deli. Since 1978 Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd has been selling fresh oysters at the roadside, with mussels, smoked salmon and a range of other fish now also available. You might also want to head to the nearby Fyne Ales to pick up some excellent locally crafted beer.
 
3 INVERARAY JAIL
Argyll Coastal Route
 
PREVIOUSNEXT
The next stop is Inveraray, a traditional town by the banks of Loch Fyne. Head to Inveraray Jail to get a taste of how life would have been for criminals in times gone by. Meet costumed guides who will tell you the gruesome and fascinating tales of the incarcerated prisoners as you take a fun tour of this foreboding neoclassical building. If you’d prefer a taste of the finer life then make your way to Inveraray Castle. The ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, the Chief of Clan Campbell, who still resides in the castle, it’s a beautiful example of neo-gothic architecture and is surrounded by glorious gardens.
 
4 AUCHINDRAIN
Argyll Coastal Route
PREVIOUSNEXT
Follow the A83 south from Inveraray to Auchindrain, a living museum and Scotland’s last inhabited Highland farming township. 
Come and see how life once was for people before the Highland Clearances and take a self-guided tour of Auchindrain, which is still a working farm where you can meet free-range chickens, sheep and Highland cows, as well as the township's cat, Cat Liath. 
You can also follow a circular walk between Auchindrain and the village of Furnace, or continue driving south to Crarae Garden, which is home to an impressive collection of beech trees.
 
 
5 KILMARTIN MUSEUM
Argyll Coastal Route
PREVIOUSNEXT
Kilmartin Museum is a great place to gain an insight into some of the 800 cairns and monuments that dot the landscape of Kilmartin Glen. See fascinating artifacts from archaeological digs, such as rare jet necklaces and swords that are over 2,000 years old. Head out into the glen to enter some of the cairns, see carved gravestones and reach the top of what remains of Dunadd Hill Fort where the first kings of Scotland were inaugurated. The glen is also home to Carnassarie Castle, the ruins of a 15th-century tower house, which was partly blown up in 1685 by Royalist forces during Argyll’s rebellion against James VII.
 
6 SAFARI ADVENTURES
Argyll Coastal Route
  
PREVIOUSNEXT
Follow the A816 up Argyll’s beautiful west coast, skirting around lochs and through small villages on route to Oban and turn off for Seafari Adventures on Easdale island. They offer a range of 5-star wildlife watching trips, with itineraries including whale spotting, excursions to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool and a tour of a seal colony en route to the islands of Iona and Staffa. Keep your eyes peeled for porpoises, dolphins, eagles, and otters as you ride. Go to Staffa during spring and summer and you’ll meet the island’s puffins too! Other boat tours are available from Oban harbor.
 
7 MCCAIG’S TOWER
Argyll Coastal Route
   
PREVIOUSNEXT
Dominating the town skyline, McCaig’s Tower was built in 1897 as a monument to the local McCaig family. From here you can admire views across Oban and out to the islands of the Inner Hebrides. Make sure you have time to browse the town’s shops before you make your onward journey, such as Oban Chocolate Factory, and visit Oban Distillery. As you head north out of Oban lookout for Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds with its ivy-clad ruins.
 
8 CASTLE STALKER VIEW
Argyll Coastal Route
 
PREVIOUSNEXT
As you drive up the coast by the shores of Loch Linnhe you can’t miss Castle Stalker, which is located on a tidal island to the north of Port Appin. This private castle allows visitors in on guided tours but they must be arranged and booked in advance. Why not pull in to Castle Stalker View café and gift shop to take in views of the castle and Loch Linnhe and have a well-earned rest? Other great attractions along this road from Oban include Ardchattan Priory Garden in North Connel, the forest at Sutherland’s Grove by Barcaldine and the Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary just past Benderloch.
 
9 GLENCOE FOLK MUSEUM
Argyll Coastal Route
PREVIOUSNEXT
Continue north into the increasingly mountainous landscape until you reach Ballachulish. You may wish to detour from here to the village of Glencoe. Open between late March and the end of October, Glencoe Folk Museum is housed in two traditional cottages and offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the area and its people. If you are especially interested in the history of the Glencoe Massacre and would like to visit the glen itself, you can choose to veer a little further off the route to visit the Glencoe Visitor Centre at the head of the glen.
10 BEN NEVIS
Argyll Coastal Route
  
PREVIOUS
You’ve arrived at Fort William, part of the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, so it’s time to get active! Keen hillwalkers will relish the challenge of scaling Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland, which stands at 4,411 ft (1,345 m). Or you might prefer to explore other mountains in the range by heading to the Nevis Range Mountain Resort.

Popular with skiers in the winter and mountain bikers in the summer, the range also has a thrilling aerial assault course and provides the opportunity to enjoy mountain panoramas without the hill walk – just ride up Aonach Mor in the gondola and enjoy the views from the top station!
