About Argyll Walking Holidays
About Argyll Walking Holidays offers guided and private guided walking holidays and hiking tours on the Cowal peninsula and other beautiful but undiscovered parts of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland
There is no better way to discover Scotland than on foot. The slow pace lends itself to exploration and lets you experience our beautiful countryside at its best, finding hidden treasures undiscovered by most tourists.
We also have 2 guided walking holidays that are (partly) based in Cowal:
Discovering South-Argyll walking holiday: A mix of hikes and gentler walks on the Cowal peninsula, the Isle of Bute, in Inveraray and along Loch Lomond, one of the most accessible and beautiful, yet least known, corners of the Highlands of Scotland.
Galloway & Argyll walking tour: This walking tour takes you to two very distinct parts of Scotland with different landscapes and historical links.
About Argyll gives you:
The story behind the places you visit. With no worries about route finding, you will see some of the best of what the West Highlands and islands has to offer, whether your interests centre on history or geology, wildlife or scenery. All of these are included in our walks through wild and beautiful places.
Confidence that you’re safe and going the right way: Our well-qualified, well-informed and enthusiastic guides will look after you. They’ll do their best to make your holiday interesting and memorable. Each of them lives in Scotland, knows it well and has some special interest in its environment. They will enjoy sharing this knowledge with you.
All our guides have mountain leadership and first aid qualifications, with experience of leading groups of various ages over all sorts of ground in all weathers and seasons.
Small international groups: Usually between 4 (minimum) and 8.
Comfortable accommodation: We book and arrange this for you, taking care to find B&Bs, guest houses or hotels that offer good food, comfort and a friendly welcome.
Road transport in our minibus: We collect you from Glasgow (city or international airport) on your first day and take you back at the end of your holiday. We also provide local transport throughout your week, as needed, evenings included.
Get-togethers in the evening in the local pub or restaurant, to set the scene for the next day. We usually eat in a different place every day, so you will get a good taste of Scottish food.
And above all else personal care and attention in everything we do for you.
