When was the last time you took an ad­ven­ture from your doorstep? With our out­stand­ing na­tional na­ture re­serves, abun­dant wildlife, pre­his­toric land­scape and stun­ning coastal views, we have it all. Stretch­ing from the pic­turesque fish­ing vil­lage of Tar­bert, Loch Fyne, in the south to Loch Craig­nish in the north, over to Knap­dale and Cri­nan in the west, across to In­ver­aray and Loch Awe in the east, with Kil­martin Glen in its midst, the Heart of Ar­gyll boasts some of the most beau­ti­ful scenery in Europe. Unique vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ences in­clude Auchindrain High­land farm town­ship mu­seum and the stun­ning Hi­malayan gar­dens at Crarae. His­toric Kil­martin Glen has the most im­por­tant con­cen­tra­tion of Ne­olithic and Bronze Age re­mains in main­land Scot­land. At least 800 an­cient mon­u­ments, of which 150 are pre­his­toric, lie within six miles of Kil­martin vil­lage. Kil­martin Mu­seum is the per­fect start to your ex­plo­ration of 6,000 years of hu­man his­tory. Take time to ex­plore the smaller roads and tracks that me­an­der through our rugged nat­u­ral land­scape and de­liver you to stun­ning cas­tles, aban­doned set­tle­ments, se­cret beaches, fish­ing vil­lages, out­stand­ing na­tional na­ture re­serves and ‘Bri­tain’s most beau­ti­ful short cut’, the Cri­nan Canal. Boat trips from Cri­nan and Ard­fern take you to the world fa­mous Cor­reyvrekan whirlpool. If that is not spe­cial enough, the sheer di­ver­sity of wildlife the area has to of­fer and breath­tak­ing coastal scenery will over­whelm your senses. A unique wildlife ex­pe­ri­ence can be had at the Heart of Ar­gyll Wildlife Vis­i­tor Cen­tre at Bar­randaimh, the home of the Scot­tish beavers – the first rein­tro­duc­tion in UK his­tory. Visit www.hearto­far­ to un­lock the se­crets of a wel­com­ing place to stay, fab­u­lous food and amaz­ing things to do and see. Whether you in­tend to ex­plore by car, by bike, to sail, kayak or just to wan­der, there is an ad­ven­ture wait­ing.
